The singer reposted a message put out by singer Billie Eilish, where she addressed the phrase ‘All Lives Matter’ and had very harsh criticism for anyone who would be promoting that online.
In Billie’s post, she said, “No one is saying your life doesn’t matter,”
She continued, “No one is saying your life is not hard. No one is saying anything at all about you…… All you MFs do is find a way to make everything about yourself. This is not about you. Stop making everything about you. You are not in need. You are not in danger.”
Singer Pink reposted the Instagram statement on her own page, which included this “You are privileged whether you like it or not. Society gives you privilege just for being white. … If all lives matter why are black people killed for just being black? Why are immigrants persecuted? … Why is it okay for white people to protest literally being asked to stay at home while carrying semi-automatic weapons? Why is it okay for black people to be called thugs for protesting the murder of innocent people? Do you know why???? White. F—king. Privilege.”
But, a few of Pink’s fans didn’t agree with her position and didn’t appreciate the singer sharing Eilish’s message.
“Totally get where you’re coming from. HOWEVER, as a person with a lawyer brain, I have to say… when you single out one race and say ‘that’ race matters. You ARE implicitly saying other races don’t matter as much. It is automatically inferred. I believe it does this situation a disjustice [sic] by putting it in the #blacklivesmatter category. This could happen to ANYONE OF US! THAT is the atrocity! THAT is the REAL issue. It is not about race,” the commenter wrote.
So, Pink blasted the person, responding on her own page to the comment, saying, “You are the epitome of white privilege and the saddest part is that you don’t even hear yourself and probably never will.”
