    Regardless of what Balvin is saying, or not, a close look into Colombia’s current social and political turmoil is due. 30+ people have died by police hand on protests that have been going on for at least 15 days.
    Balvin`s movie can wait. we can`t. Historically black communities and cities are being targeted by Colombia’s own armed forces.
    I believe this beats whatever a boy from Medellin has to say

Pffff…..he’ll do anything to sell more records

    How ironic -and disappointing-: On the same night you guys claim that one can’t ignore taking a position in the face of disproportionate state violence… you also interview the guy who does not position himself while those “new generations” are shot on colombian streets by the police, just because he doesn’t wanna lose a certain group of fans (although in previous times he has certainly claimed “respect” for Alvaro Uribe).

    Bro, delete this, JB is everything but a real representation of Colombia rn. “JBalvin, there’s people dying”, use your plataform and your media to inform people, we are tired of your fake positivity.

    he is not a politician but he is COLOMBIAN he should use his voice for the ones that can’t be heard right now. I like his music but he is a coward for not speaking out for his country

    I’m from Medellin and I haven’t watched the doc, but I appreciate if what J Balvin wants is to show the other face from our city. I really wish him the best success and I’m grateful to Trevor for the interview, it was real and nice.

    This man released a documentary about himself in the middle of one of Colombia’s worst crises in recent memory while people are being murdered in the streets by the government and stays silent about it and has the audacity to go on american talk shows to talk about “the real Colombia”…

    Trevor, can you talk about Tigray in Ethiopia which is on a being of human made famine? Ethiopians and the world hears you because you are the voice for the voiceless.

    This is the first time I feel disappointed in the daily show. What a bad time to pick such a narcissistic, misogynistic, shallow, ignorant person, with zero social empathy.
    The Colombian people is now going through horrible human right abuses; dozens of protesters have been murdered by the police during the last days demonstrations against the government.
    Why not talking about that instead of presenting this trivial interview?

    This interview seems a bit out of touch and even plain tone deaf. They just talk about “what’s happening in Colombia” as if it is something to just shrug off. I have been expecting Trevor to give some insight as to the causes or at least show a bit of sympathy towards the victims but this is all that TDS could come up with? I mean come on.

    Visited Medillin in Dec. It is such a rescilient place and the stories of the people and what happened to them over the decades was heartbreaking and inspiring. 2 days after my trip I booked another! This time to Bogota. The day the protests started (this month) I was supposed to arrive, but I canceled my flights (bc of curfews). Then I saw the news!
