Bad Bunny and Residente announced earlier this week that they would both be joining the growing protests against Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló, who is accused of corruption, homophobia and mismanagement. The Puerto Rican stars have also linked up with singer iLe for a new song, “Afilando los Cuchillos,” which voices the artists’ call for Rosselló to resign.
Over the past few days, thousands of Puerto Rican have taken to the streets of San Juan, to demand that Rosselló step down. Private texts from Rosselló’s phone were leaked earlier this week, in which he made homophobic comments about singer Ricky Martin and made sexist remarks about a New York politician of Puerto Rican background, among other derogatory remarks. To make matters worse, two of his most senior former officials were arrested by the FBI last week on corruption charges.
