Cuban-American rapper Pitbull released a bold message to the world concerning the efforts of the Cuban people to overthrow the country’s Communist dictatorship on Wednesday.
“This is a message to the world. We need to stand up. Step up. But if you don’t understand what’s going on, then you need to wake the fuck up. Not only is this a Cuba event, a Cuba thing— it’s a world event. This isn’t about politics. This is about saving lives. This is about unity, not division. The bottom line is about taking action.” the rapper said in a two-minute video he posted to both Instagram and Twitter, Wednesday.
“Let me tell you something, why I am frustrated why when I see everybody out there doing what they are doing—which I love what they are doing. Not only do we live for freedom, we ride for freedom, we die for freedom. We motherfucking appreciate freedom. It gets me hot. It bothers me, and it frustrates me to a certain extent being a Cuban-American and having a platform to be able to speak to the world and not being able to help my own people. Not being able to get them food. Not being able to get them water. Not being able to get them medicine. But most of all not being able to help and get them what they really deserve— which is freedom.” Pittbull continued.
The musician also called on all world allies and international companies to come to the aid of the Cuban people. He specifically called on Jeff Bezos, the founder, and CEO of Amazon.com, who went to high school in Miami, to aid the people of Cuba in their fight to overthrow the island’s dictatorship.
The video has gone viral since being posted, with more than 20k retweets and over 52k likes.
