In concert at the Hollywood Bowl Wednesday, John Legend wore a t-shirt that read "Don’t Shoot," a slogan that has been used by protesters in Ferguson for the past week and a half, following the killing of Michael Brown. Legend paid tribute to Marvin Gaye and sang "What’s Going On," a song that came out during the Vietnam war era–which still seems very fitting, given current events.
Some fans tweeted about it, making the connection to Ferguson:
