With plenty of people in Los Angeles taking to the streets to protest the death of George Floyd and other acts of police brutality, Blueface decided to make a joke out of the situation.
On Friday (June 5), the “Thotiana” rapper was out shopping for furniture for his new place when he was shocked at the price of some of the items. He then asked for a “George Floyd discount,” making light of Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police.
“Aye, y’all tell them to give me that George Floyd discount, cuh,” Blueface said in a since-deleted post to his Instagram Story. “I need that Black Lives Matter discount.”
Even with a global pandemic going on, Blueface still has found ways to keep himself and his 5.8 million followers on Instagram entertained. He’s had numerous strippers pull up to his studio, had a boxing match with YK Osiris, and even got into some drama with the mother of his child. Similar to Boosie Badazz and Tory Lanez, he’s used the quarantine to entertain fans with a lot of NSFW content but unlike Boosie and Tory, he hasn’t gotten on Instagram Live with it.
Many took to Twitter to denounce the rapper’s “joke” and didn’t hesitate to light into him for trying to make light of a situation that has resulted in protesters being shot with rubber bullets, being teargassed and more while demonstrating for police reform.
Time will tell if he’ll calm down with his antics, or even speak out on the matters happening across Los Angeles but he did offer some form of acknowledgment. “No justice no peace,” he wrote on Twitter.
no justice no peace ?

Blueface really asked a furniture store for a ‘George Floyd discount’. Can’t expect someone that raps like Blueface to read ANYTHING, much less THE ROOM.
