RILEY GREEN got the Internet all riled-up with a Tweet he made during Sunday’s halftime show. Seems he was annoyed when JENNIFER LOPEZ and SHAKIRA started singing in Spanish.
Here’s what he wrote: “Great game . . . but can I get somebody to translate this Super Bowl halftime show so I know what they are singing about?”
One person said, “Damn Riley. I love your music but it’s sad that you can’t respect people of different cultures.” Another said, “It’s music. It transcends language as you should know, and just as you like to show off your roots so do they. Tasteless tweet.”
One person tried to lighten the mood with, “I tried to press ‘one’ for English.”
Another tried to shame him with, “I thought you were better than this.” And fellow country star MICKEY GUYTON Tweeted, “I’m at a loss for words. Do better people. Step outside yourself for a second and do better.”
However, somebody did try to back him up by writing, “In all honesty, to me, they were singing too fast and you couldn’t make out the words. I truly don’t believe Riley was being disrespectful at all.”
