Putting The Shakira Urban Legend to Rest

This week the singer Shakira appeared on MTV in front of a live audience and talked to fans who called the studio.

When an Israelie fan was put on the air, the singer refused to speak to her saying she’d “rather have PIGS listening to her music than Israelies!”

I think it is a disgrace that a person like her is given a platform to express her incredibly outrageous views and that a network as big and as influential as MTV did not condemn her expression.

This is a singer who is rated no.1 in the world and in Israel with her smash hit “whenever, wherever”. We can not turn a blind eye to these sayings anymore!
