Stefflon Don found herself at the mercy of Twitter after she made some inflammatory comments about the Black Lives Matter movement. While promoting her new single, the British rapper staged her arrest at the hands of a white police officer.
In the caption, she wrote, “Bloodclaat mi a get locked up Black Lives Matter” with a laughing face emoji.
When a fan asked Stefflon to change the caption considering it was Juneteenth, she lashed out instead.
“Tell America yall need a new President,” she said in a since-deleted comment. “Get your sensitive ass out of my comments plz about Black Lives ain’t no joke who da fuq said it was? And if you aint physically done nothing about it then definitely don’t say nothing because you don’t really care you think typing on insta will solve your problems lol.
“Educate your self. By the way slavery aint no joke either but you still tune in to watch the movie that makes the same white man who enslaved you money and you applaud it and they get rewarded for it now go underneath the real enemies comments not mine.”
Unsurprisingly, Twitter wasn’t having it and promptly canceled the bold 27-year-old.
Check out some of the reactions below.
Can somebody please tell Stefflon Don that joking about being arrested & hollering black lives matter is not appropriate. Does she live under a rock? Did we not just witness Phoenix PD & Hawthorne PD act up?
