Madonna sparks social media ire for insensitive George Floyd tribute

Madonnabecame a trending subject matter on Thursday night time for all the wrong reasons.

The pop megastar attempted to respectfully pay tribute to George Floyd by way of sharing a video of 14-year-vintage son David Banda dancing to Michael Jackson’s song “They Don’t Care About Us,” writing on social media, “As news of George Floyd’s brutal homicide travels round the sector my son David dances to honor and pay tribute to George and his circle of relatives and all acts of racism and discrimination that happen on a every day foundation in America.”

Her publish became met with full-size criticism, with a few calling the pop superstar out of contact.

“A bit insensitive as you are a person with a platform to voice their difficulty, you have to be doing plenty more,” one Twitter consumer wrote. “Having your followed black son dance ain’t going to force alternate to take place.”

Another wrote, “Good intentions but absolutely tone-deaf. Dancing away the racism of murderous law enforcement officials may not definitely do anything. But thank you for attempting!”
