Seriously, NHL… this nonsense has to stop…
Singer Kiana Ledé, who wore pro-Palestinian clothing and sang the American national anthem at the 2024 NHL All-Star Game, has caused an outrageous uproar in the league.
The NHL invited the 26-year-old to sing the national anthem at the All-Star Game hosted by Toronto.
Lede, who is known for supporting Palestinians since the outbreak of war between Israel and Hamas, wore a cardigan-style sweater resembling a keffiyeh, which is popular among Palestinian supporters.

The pro-Palestinian crowd is using a black-and-white checkered keffiyeh as a symbol of unity, the same symbol worn by Mr. Rede.
The NHL has not officially commented on the situation.
Rede has faced criticism for singing the national anthem, citing her support for the Palestinian people.

And after just 10 minutes of searching…this is the person we chose to sing the Canadian National Anthem
“…We express our support for the Palestinian resistance.”
“This is not a war or conflict, this is mass murder.”

Oh, and she's also a decadent.
If you built your own pinball machine, it would definitely be rated R. Supposedly, the lever needed to take out the balls looks like a penis, and the balls look like his one testicle. I don't understand. I'm still thinking about it in my head. pic.twitter.com/aBri7dF9c9
