Lady Gaga lashed out at President Donald Trump after the death of George Floyd, the black unarmed man who died Monday in Minneapolis after being arrested violently. In a post on Instagram, the singer calls him a “ fool ” and a “ racist ” who fuels rather than combats divisions in the country.
“He holds the most powerful office in the world, but offers nothing but ignorance and prejudice”
She writes that she is very sad and outraged by the event and that something has to change quickly. “The voices of the black community have been silenced for too long and that silence has proved deadly time and time again. And whatever they do to protest, it does not bring compassion to the leaders of this country, who are there to “, says the” Born This Way “singer.
Trump, according to Gaga, would not tackle racism, but feed it. “We have known for a long time that President Trump has failed. He holds the most powerful office in the world, but offers nothing but ignorance and prejudice while still taking black lives,” wrote the 34-year-old pop star, who thinks that’s why it is high time that the black community was supported by all other communities. “We MUST show our love for the black community,” she calls her fans. “As a white, privileged woman, I join in on that.”
