I don't know "what virtue signalling is supposed to be", says Musician John Legend!
The legendary musician John Legend, who is wedded to model Chrissy Teigen, has been accused by his critics of being preachy about social and moral issues, but John is bewildered by the accusation.
Recently, in a media chat, he rejected claims that he is "preachy". He revealed, "I don't know what virtue signalling is supposed to be. I get that people don't like people who are overly preachy or overly moralising. But, in my humble opinion, if you care about people who are often undervalued and overlooked in society, what's so negative about that?
"There seem to be some who think that standing up for immigrants whose kids are getting locked up in cages is ... some might call that virtue signalling and some might think speaking up against it is absolutely right." John further added. "Love in public is what (philosopher) Cornel West called justice, the idea that you value people's lives no matter who they are or where they live or how different they are from you.”, he added later.
