Post Malone is taking heat for seemingly avoiding the subject of 21 Savage‘s arrest and detainment during his Grammys performance — but PM was definitely showing love … ya just couldn’t see it.
Post performed his hit song “Rockstar” Sunday during the award show — which, of course, features 21 Savage. Thing is, Post didn’t directly address Savage’s situation during his stage time … and appeared to avoid Savage’s verse altogether.
Some folks thought PM was doing 21 dirty by not taking the opportunity to speak out for his fellow MC — who’s currently being detained by ICE for being in the country illegally.

While Post didn’t shout out Savage on camera, he was spotted backstage wearing a 21 Savage T-shirt — which was presumably on him during the”Rockstar” performance.
He joins a movement that was out in force in front of the Staples Center before showtime — the #Free21Savage coalition … which had people marching with signs in support of the Atlanta-based rapper.
Put away your claws, people … Post’s heart was in the right place here.
