“We could use this kind of excitement at a pipeline protest,” Jackson said as the crowd cheered. “Hashtag no DAPL!”
The Dakota Access Pipeline returned to prominence in the news after President Donald Trump signed executive orders greenlighting the controversial oil projects stymied under the Obama administration on Jan. 24.
Viewers on Twitter, included Rebecca Black, shared their support for Jackson and said they were happy to see a celebrity spread awareness for the cause.

Jackson was not the only artist to make a political statement at the Grammys. Singer-songwriter Joy Villa sported a pro-Trump dress that said “Make America Great Again” in rhinestones.
