The Tenors caused quite a stir at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game in San Diego Tuesday night, when one member of the group went “rogue” and changed the lyrics to O Canada.

Midway through the national anthem, Remigio Pereira added his own lyrics to his solo, to reflect his feelings on certain hot-button topics.

Rather than singing “With glowing hearts we see thee rise, the true north strong and free,” Pereira sang, “We’re all brothers and sisters, all lives matter to the great.”

He then held up a sheet of paper that read “all lives matter” on one side and “united we stand” on the other, throughout the remainder of the song.

The remaining thee members of the group apologized for the incident afterwards, taking to Twitter to express their shock and embarrassment of “this shameless act” committed by a “lone Wolf” member of the band (see attached document). The apology went on the say Pereira has been expelled from the group until further notice.
