The Weekend was set join the rapper Belly last night to perform their track 'Might Not' on Jimmy Kimmel Live. That performance was subsequently canceled by the artists due to Donald Trump also making an appearance on the show, according to ABC News.

Although The Weeknd has yet to say why the performance was cancelled, Belly did not shy away from discussing the situation. The Palestinian-Canadian artist released a statement to Associated Press.

"I feel like the way I was raised was to be able to see through all the titles in this world — from religion to race," expressed Belly. "I just didn't want to feel like I was a part of a celebration for somebody who has beliefs that majority of us don't agree with."
