Huge BBMAs winner, The Weeknd, and fellow Canadian native, Belly canceled their performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! yesterday in protest of Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump, who was present at the show.

The two were all set to perform their collab hit “Might Not” before pulling out.

In their place, Jazz singer/songwriter Gregory Porter performed.

Here’s what Belly said to AP:

“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… 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.” spin.com

“Might Not” became Belly’s first charting song, ultimately peaking at #68 on the Billboard Hot 100.
