The Philadelphia 76ers have issued an apology to Sevyn Streeter after refusing to let her perform the national anthem, due to her “We Matter” jersey.

According to NBA.com, the Sixers “have admitted they dropped the ball and are anxious to correct their mistake.”

Their statement, issued on Friday, said:

We are sorry that this happened.  After receiving feedback from our players, basketball operations staff and ownership group, we believe that the wrong decision was made, and Sevyn should have been welcomed to sing. We apologize to her, and in an effort to move the conversation forward, we have reached out to offer her an opportunity to return and perform at a game of her choice. We are waiting to hear back.

Sevyn spoke with the AP following the cancellation of her performance to express her disappointment over the NBA team’s decision, and also posted to social media.

“I was angry, extremely, extremely angry, and disappointed and honestly brought to tears by all of it. It broke my heart,” she said. “Honestly, I was very excited about being able to perform the national anthem. I was really looking forward to that.”

She also said she felt it was important to express the ongoing challenges and injustice that the black community faces within the U.S. “Yes, we live in the greatest country in the world, but there are issues that we cannot ignore,” she explained. “This can’t be ignored.”

    help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m
    not seeing very good success. If you know of any please share.
    Kudos!

  14. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog
    when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  15. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided
    to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break.

    I really like the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile ..
    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, amazing site!

  16. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has
    a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself
    or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization.
    Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being ripped off?

    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  18. I’m pretty pleased to discover this great site. I wanted to thank you for ones time
    just for this fantastic read!! I definitely enjoyed every part of it and I have you bookmarked to see new things in your website.

  19. You’re so awesome! I do not believe I have read through
    something like this before. So nice to discover another person with
    some original thoughts on this subject matter.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This website is
    one thing that is required on the web, someone with some originality!

  20. Very good blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any tips? Kudos!

  21. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective.

    A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a superb job with this. Also, the blog
    loads super quick for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!

  22. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great images
    or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
    this website could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Great blog!

  23. This design is spectacular! You definitely know how
    to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.

    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
