The touching message, which was posted on Saturday morning, preached that the victim of police brutality, Floyd, deserves true justice. The singer began her message by saying that she has thought hard and long about how to speak about the wrongful death. She also said that though she respects all races, she is hurt that some people are using the #BlackLivesMatter campaign as a yardstick to preach #AllLivesMatter.

She went on to say that the latter hashtag is only aimed at invalidating the campaign by blacks, which is not acceptable.

Eilish is one of many celebrities that have tried to correct people pushing the all lives matter campaign against the black lives matter campaign.

"No one is saying your life doesn't matter. No one is saying your life is not hard. No one is saying literally anything at all about you... all you MFs do is find a way to make everything about yourself. This is not about you." Eilish wrote.

In conclusion, Eilish made it known to the general public that it doesn't matter what they think now, people of color are continuously subjected to higher levels of prejudice and persecution, than white people.

"If all lives matter, why are black people killed for just being black? Why are immigrants persecuted? Why are white people given opportunities that people of other races aren't?" The "Bad Guy" singer asked.
