It was evident with Ben Haggerty's a.k.a Macklemore's performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards that he was politically and socially conscious, but at the AMA's he took it to another level.
After accepting the Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Album award, he wanted to give his respect to Trayvon Martin. The rapper said: "Due to the fact that we are in Florida tonight accepting this award I want to acknowledge Trayvon Martin and the hundreds and hundreds of kids each year that are dying due to racial profiling and the violence that follows it."
How would Olivia handle this positive moment for the rapper?
