During a live performance on the Today Show, keyboardist Billy Wes was forced to turn his t-shirt inside out because it read "Free Britney Griner" across the chest, which NBC did not allow. The t-shirt was meant to show support for WNBA star Britney Griner, who pleaded guilty to drug charges in Russia and faces up to ten years in prison. Macy Gray, who was also present during the performance, stated that the issue was not political but rather about a human being in a difficult situation. Wes and others are putting pressure on the Biden Administration to secure Griner's release back to the United States.
