J. Lo, who has donated to Hillary Clinton in the past, is planning to speak at the Latino Inaugural Ball on Sunday night and her husband Marc Anthony will sing. The announcement has reportedly ruffled some feathers in the Latino community.
One power player called them “vile opportunists for worming themselves into anything Obama related even though they had nothing to do with his win.”
According to the source, Anthony refused to perform for Obama during a crucial get-out-the-Latino-vote event in Orlando, Fla., two weeks before the election and Lopez refused to endorse Obama unless he called her himself, which he didn’t. The Orlando event went on without them and featured Bill Clinton and Jimmy Smits.
