As expected, the current president has not been properly dealing with the aftermath of yet another horrible police brutality case that has sparked national outcry! Instead, Donald Trump called protesters seeking justice in the name of George Floyd, ‘thugs’ and Billie Eilish was having none of it!
The young singer could not and would not keep quiet and so she retweeted one of the problematic posts from Trump, adding her own opinion alongside it!
Billie went on a long and angry rant, calling the president out for his insensitive and discriminatory words!
As you know, George Floyd was a man who passed away after being arrested for a minor offence due to the fact that he was pinned down by a policeman who kept his knee on his neck for nearly nine minutes even though he complained about not being able to breathe.
In the aftermath of the shocking death caught on camera by bystanders, protests of a rather explosive nature have been going on in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
‘OUR OWN PRESIDENT SAID THIS. OUR. OWN. PRESIDENT. ARE YOU DEAD F**KING SERIUS????? EAT A HUGE F**KING D**K AND CHOKE ON IT,’ Billie tweeted in response to the president’s reaction to the current events.
She also went on a lengthier rant on her Instagram, arguing that ‘IF I HEAR ONE MORE WHITE PERSON SAY ‘aLL liVes maTter’ ONE MORE F**KING TIME IM GONNA LOSE MY F**KING MIND. SOCIETY GIVES YOU PRIVILEGE JUST FOR BEING WHITE. YOU CAN BE POOR, YOU CAN BE STRUGGLING..AND STILL YOUR SKIN COLOR IS GIVING YOU MORE PRIVILEGE THAN YOU REALIZE.’
‘WHY IS IT OKAY FOR WHITE PEOPLE TO PROTEST BEING ASKED TO STAY AT HOME WHILE CARRYING SEMI AUTOMATIC WEAPONS? WHY IS IT OKAY FOR BLACK PEOPLE TO BE CALLED THUGS JUST FOR PROTESTING THE MURDER OF INNOCENT PEOPLE? DO YOU KNOW WHY???? WHITE. F***ING PRIVILEGE.’
Billie is just one of the many stars calling out the president for his problematic way of dealing with the situation.
For instance, Taylor Swift also slammed him after Trump threatened to have the authorities open fire against the protesters!
