French Montana made the conversation political when he gave a brief pro-immigration speech while presenting the award for best Latin video at the 2019 MTV VMAs.
The Moroccan-born rapper, who was joined onstage by actress Alison Brie, expressed that was was “proud” to present the award “because as an immigrant, I feel like we are the people that make this country, and I feel like I want to be the voice.”
“What’s happening to immigrants in this country is unconstitutional and frankly disgusting,” Brie chimed in.
“Can I get a hand for that?” French Montana said.
