Even though the singer’s concerts are over bad bunny which he celebrated this weekend at the Coliseum of Puerto Ricois still making headlines for everything that happened in them. One of the issues that drew attention and generated the most comments over the weekend was when, in one of his speeches during Thursday’s concert, he called Governor Pedro Pierluisi and all the politicians “who are They believe they own the country.”
During the night of Saturday, in his third and last concert “A summer without you”, Benito Martinez Ocasio, returned to the topic of the political situation on the island, trying to explain what a sector of the country understood as a “lack of respect” towards Pierluisi. In several videos published on social networks by concertgoers, the composer’s message could be appreciated.
“I am now of legal age. I am 28 years old and I thank God for throwing me here on this piece of land, Puerto Rico. I thank God for giving me the family he gave me. And I understand that my family, my dad, my mom did a good job raising me.”, commented the popular singer as he walked from side to side on the stage. “They taught me values, they taught me respect, they taught me good things that make me the human being that I am today,” added the artist born in Vega Baja, before greeting his parents, who were in the audience.
The Puerto Rican continued his speech focusing on respect for other people. “There are things that one is going to learn, while one is growing up, at school, on the street and in life, period. And my family taught me about respect. To respect people, but to give myself respect as well. And I understand, I am aware that saying mamab… to someone is disrespectful”, commented the interpreter of “I behave pretty” before beginning a long list of reasons why he considers that the Government and politicians disrespect the people.
“It is a lack of respect, the displacement of many Puerto Rican people who have to leave here, from Puerto Rico. It is disrespectful that Puerto Rico is left without power every day, once, five, four times, and nobody tells me about it. Nobody tells me this. Do you know why? Because I live here. I live in Puerto Rico. I have not moved, ”she added, while receiving the support of the public in the form of shouts and applause with each situation he mentioned.
“Do you know what disrespect is? The salary of the teachers, the salary of the policemen, that is a lack of respect. It is disrespectful that schools continue to be closed year after year. It is disrespectful that there are people in this country who do not have access to a hospital and a decent health system”, commented the artist who will act in the movie “Bullet Train”, alongside Brad Pitt and which premieres this coming Thursday, July 4. “It’s disrespectful that they keep trying to deceive us and catch us off…, but they caught up with the generation that is not going to leave, puñ…”
Before finishing his speech, which at times seemed more like a political rally than an urban music concert, Bad Bunny wanted to send a message to the country’s political class indicating that the younger generations “have the strength” and that they were not leaving. to “let disrespect again”.
“I don’t want to be the most revolutionary, the most rebellious, I don’t want to be, what do I know, whatever you want to call me, the most pro-independence. This is not about political ideals. This is nothing against the statesmen, the librists”, clarified the reggaeton player. “This is about dignity and respect for a country that is tired of being caught on the hook…year after year. And that the generations that are growing up, the generation that goes with me is aware of that, that it has a voice, that it has the strength and that we are not going to allow ourselves to be disrespected again. And this is not from one day to the next, this is little by little, I know, this is step by step, but little by little the force is being felt and they know it. That’s why they are afraid.”
