The Cage Metaphor
Coincidentally, a couple of weeks ago, i came across this: Jennifer Lopez detailed how the NFL bigwigs asked her to remove the cage metaphor (kids inside cages singing as a commentary on the Trump immigration policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the US-Mexico border) in her docu of the NFL Halftime performance (most of which she wrote, directed, and produced). She remained firm, and the rest was history in NFL performances.
