Hispanic boy slammed over National Anthem

SAN ANTONIO, TX

Some Twitter users have been making racist comments about a "Mexican" singing the "American" National Anthem. Sebastien de la Cruz says he's a proud American and his isn't going to let them get to him.

"I think the people were talking bad because of what I was wearing and it's not my fault." Sebastien said. "It's what I love and I'm just proud to be a mariachi singer. It's their opinion actually and if they don't like mariachi. That's their problem. I love it."

Sebastien says he doesn't care what people think, it's what you think about yourself that counts.
