Sebastien De La Cruz, the Mexican-American 11-year-old mariachi who performed the national anthem before game 3 of the NBA finals in San Antonio, TX on Tuesday, has responded to the racist remarks that ensued his performance.
"For those that said something bad about me, I understand it's your opinion," Sebastien told CNN. "I'm a proud American and live in a free country. It's not hurting me. It's just your opinion."
