Feldman added that the song was a timely message for our addled nation.
This song, by the way, is for America. We're at a time right now when the world needs to focus, really, on peace and love and tolerance, especially with all the bullying. So, this is about the government. This is about the race. This is about the United States.
Addressing the viral internet jeering in the wake of the shocking performance, Feldman said he's rising above it, and has received words of encouragement from Kesha, P!nk, and Paris Jackson.
I'm not letting the bullies get to us. A lot of people get hate in the beginning because we're doing something new — it hasn't been done before. But, it's all about innovation and being an artist, and we can't be afraid to share our art.
