This was the only time the President's name was mentioned at the award show, though stars and guests took subtle jabs at POTUS throughout the night. The first coming from Paris Jackson, who addressed the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.
"If we were to all stand up, united, as one, our impact, it would be, huge. Believe me…yuge and that's not fake news," Jackson said. "So, let's leave here tonight remembering that we must show these nazi white supremacist jerks in Charlottesville and all over the country that as a nation with liberty as our slogan, we have zero tolerance for their violence, their hatred, and their discrimination!"
Rapper Logic also took the stage to perform his powerful song about suicide "1-800-273-8255," where he paused to make a statement about love and acceptance.
"...I don't give a damn if you're black, white or any color in between. I don't care if you're Christian, you're Muslim, you're gay, you're straight. I am here to fight for your equality because I believe that we are all born equal, but we are not treated equally, and that is why we must fight. We must fight for the equality of every man, woman and child regardless of race, religion, color, creed and sexual orientation."
