The recent tragedy of the death of George Floyd has heightened the tension in Minneapolis and the United States. With many celebrities sharing their thoughts of the tragic event which had occurred, one of them is utilizing it to promote his projects.
What did Matty Healy do
Matty Healy, the lead vocalist of the band, The 1975, recently did such an inhuman deed shaming himself and losing the respect of lots of people. He took to his twitter and tried to promote his video, “Love It If We Made It” and attached the link for the same in the tweet.
Without a second thought and lacking a bit of common sense the singer was foolish enough to tweet, “If you truly believe that ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’ you need to stop facilitating the end of black ones”. This was not taken up lightly by the Twitterati’s, and they backfired on the artist.
Below is the screenshot of his tweet which is now deleted:
Later he posted an apology after deleting the original tweet and saying that the song is not about him and rather speaks more clearly than her tweets and is for the current disgusting situation. Following a huge reaction from many, he was forced down to deactivate his Twitter account.
Later he posted a petition of change.org and asked the fans to support it to do justice to Floyd.
What Happened With George Floyd?
After the incident again we saw the hidden racism in American society. A policeman in America is seen using nonlethal ways to kill a black man named George Floyd, who was reportedly unarmed as seen through the video footage.
He puts a knee to George’s neck and pressed hard, while Floyd begged for help and said that he could not breathe properly. Gradually her respiration lowers resulting in is death.
This incident which is non-legal against a black man has sparked huge protests throughout the country. The video has been since then shared in every social media.
