The singer just joined the list of celebs slamming the current president over his reaction to another police brutality case that’s led to the tragic death of George Floyd. It is no secret the country has been outraged and Donald Trump’s poor response, while expected, has left quite a lot to be desired, nevertheless!
Lady Gaga took to social media to express her frustration over how he’s been dealing with the whole thing, dragging Trump and holding nothing back while doing it!
At the same time, her message was also supposed to show support to the Black Lives Matter movement as a whole and bring more awareness to what happened to George Floyd.
‘The voices of the Black community have been silenced for way too long and that silence has proven to be deadly time and time again. And no matter what they do in protest, they’re still met with no compassion by the leaders meant to protect them. Every day people in America are racist, and that’s a fact,’ Gaga wrote in the first slide of her post.
She went on to slam the president and criticize the way he’s been dealing with the murder and the protests that have followed.
‘We have known for a long time President Trump has failed. He holds the most powerful office in the whole world, yet he offers nothing but ignorance and prejudice as Black lives continue to be taken. We’ve known he’s a fool, and a racist, ever since he took office he’s fueling a system that’s already rooted in racism, and racist activity, and we can see what is happening.’
The star made sure to encourage her followers to stand with the black community during this time, now, more than ever!
She stressed that ‘We MUST show love for the Black community. As a privileged white woman, I take an oath to stand by that. We have not, as a privileged community, done enough to fight the racism and to stand up for the people being killed by it.’
