3.) In October 2012, Lopez reportedly traveled to Belarus, the only dictatorship in Europe (part of her world tour). Her team has apparently ignored requests for comment on her time there.
For the full HRF report, click here. Thor Halvorssen, president of HRF, released a statement in reaction to Lopez’s questionable string of performances.
“What those covering this story have missed is that J.Lo and her management have misled her fans and the public. J.Lo has repeatedly mingled with and entertained some of the world’s worst thugs and their cronies,” he said.
Halvorssen added, “This is not about ignorance, it’s about greed.”
In an interview with FNL, Halvorssen said his organization (which has also looked into other celebrities) have “never come across someone who has done this so much and so shamelessly as JLo. She is unique. She is in a class of her own.”
Advocates for human rights hope she will return the money she’s earned through these gigs, according to FNL.
“She should donate money, she should apologize, she should make a statement about these governments,” Halvorssen added.
