“The admissions system rewards people’s parents being wealthy and people’s parents having gone to a certain school. There’s a lot of legal ways to do that that still aren’t really that fair to a lot of other people.”
Legend, who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania – one of the schools at the center of the scandal – in 1999. He said the system overall is broken.

Legend also comment on the New Zealand massacre and the fact the suspect’s reference in a rambling manifesto, to President Trump as inspiring the rampage that killed killed 49 people.
The President of the US didn't cause all of this. It's been around well before his tenure. But his rhetoric has certainly fueled and inspired these killers' sick minds. He needs to condemn this evil ideology and take real steps to fight it.
