Bad Bunny took advantage of an appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s show to pay tribute to a transgender woman who was shot and killed in Puerto Rico.

The singer was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday.

While performing his song “Ignorantes” with Sech, Bad Bunny unveiled a T-shirt reading: “Mataron a Alexa, no a un hombre con falda” – which means in English: “They killed Alexa, not a man in a skirt.”

The sentence is an apparent response to media reports who misgendered Alexa in early reports of her death.

Neulisa Luciano Ruiz, also known as Alexa, was fatally shot in Toa Baja early on Monday.

Her death has been widely condemned.

“This is a horrifying crime that must be investigated with the utmost thoroughness and care. This victim, who has now been identified as Neulisa Luciano Ruiz, was a human being, a member of a community, a friend and family member,” Tori​ Cooper, of the Human Rights Campaign, said.

“She had dreams, hopes, hobbies and did not deserve to have her life taken from her. HRC has heard that Ruiz was experiencing homelessness, further highlighting the ways a toxic mix of transphobia and misogyny conspire to put the transgender community at risk of extreme violence.”
