Pink Slams Hateful Comments After Showing Support for the Black Lives Matter Movement

Pink isn’t here for the bulls–t.

On Saturday, the songstress took to social media to show her support for the Black Lives Matter movement and reaction to George Floyd‘s death—who passed away on May 25 after a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck during his arrest and refused to get off after Floyd stated several times he couldn’t breathe.

The 40-year-old star re-posted Billie Eilish‘s powerful statement, in which she addressed white privilege and the problem with the All Lives Matter movement.

“I have an enormous platform and I try really hard to be respectful and take time to think through what I say and how I say it. But holy f–king s–t, I’m just gonna start talking,” the 18-year-old singer’s message read.

“If I hear one more white person say “aLL liVeS maTtEr” one more f–king time, I’m gonna lose my f–king mind,” she continued. “Will you shut the f–k up? No one is saying your life is not hard. No one is saying literally anything at all about you. All you mfs do is find a way to make everything about yourself.”

Because Pink shared that statement to her own Instagram page, some of her followers weren’t too pleased with the message.

“Totally get where you’re coming from. HOWEVER, as a person with a lawyer brain, I have to say… when you single out one race and say “that” race matters. You ARE implicitly saying other races don’t matter as much. It is automatically inferred,” one person replied. “I believe it does this situation a disjustice by putting it in the #blacklivesmatter category. This could happen to ANY ONE OF US! THAT is the atrocity! THAT is the REAL issue. It is not about race.”

However, the “You Make Me Sick” singer shut down the negative and hateful comments real quick.

“You are the epitome of white privilege and the saddest part is that you don’t even hear yourself and probably never will,” the songstress hit back. 

Another person wrote, “All Business Owners Life’s Matter too,” to which she replied, “So you can’t read.”

Another commentor said, “There are NO white people in need!!! I get it… but come on… dont’ just rattle off nonsense.” She chimed in, “I would need you to make sense in order to respond.”

Of course, Pink isn’t the only celebrity to speak up and issue a response in light of Floyd’s death.

Selena Gomez, Harry Styles, Lady Gaga and so many others have used their platform to share their thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement, racism in America, white privilege and more.
