Chrisette Michele and Spike Lee
As many of you know, Chrisette Michele has just performed at Donald Trump's Presidential Inauguration.

This was apparently enough for director Spike Lee to give her song "Black Girl Magic" the axe from his new Netflix show "She's Gotta Have It":

Good Morning Folks. I Wuz Sorry To Read That ‘Sistuh Girl’ Is Singin’ At DT’s Inauguration (And To Use His Fav Word-SAD). I Wuz Thinkin’ ’bout Using Chrisette’s Song- BLACK GIRL MAGIC In My Netflix Series SHE’S GOTTA HAVE IT…. NOT ANYMORE. And Dat’s Da Truth, Ruth

See the source of the quote on Lee's instagram page.

According to Michele, although not a Trump supporter herself, she was "Willing to be a bridge", and will probably endure a great deal of backlash. Here is her open letter, as posted by her twitter account:
