nbc today cut Janelle monae off during police brutality speech

NBC's Today Show reportedly cut Janelle Monáe off toward the end of her performance of the new Wondaland Records track "Hell You Talmbout."

At the end, Janelle became very vocal about the tragedies surrounding recent police brutality incidents in the United States.

Monae goes on to say: "God bless all the lives lost to police brutality. We want white America to know that we stand tall today. We want black America to know we stand tall today. We will not be silenced!"

As you can hear below, someone begins to talk right over her. Now, this is probably a basic transition into commercial but if not, this will be interesting.
