Singer Madonna came under heavy fire following her tribute to George Floyd, the black American killed by a white cop in Minneapolis.
The pop star’s attempt to respectfully pay tribute to the deceased backfired when she posted a video of her 14-year-old son David Banda dancing to Michael Jackson’s They Don’t Care About Us.
As news of George Floyd’s brutal murder travels around the world my son David dances to honor and pay tribute to George and his family and all acts of racism and discrimination that happen on a daily basis in America.”
Her post attracted fan backlash, with a Twitter user saying, “A bit insensitive as you’re a person with a platform to voice their concern, you should be doing a lot more. Having your adopted black son dance ain’t going to force change to happen.”
Another commented: “Good intentions but completely tone-deaf. Dancing away the racism of murderous cops won’t actually do anything. But thanks for trying!.”
