A video Madonna shared of her son dancing in tribute to George Floyd has received some backlash for being tone-deaf in the wake of the Minnesota man’s death. This is so ridiculously absurd.
The superstar shared a clip on Instagram and Twitter of her 14-year-old son, David Banda, dancing to the Michael Jackson song “They Don’t Care About Us” as protests continue over Floyd’s death. The 46-year-old died after a white Minneapolis police officer was filmed kneeling on his neck for more than eight minutes.
This is what happens when one lives in a bubble.. They think any action they take is lauded and makes a difference..
Ignorant and privileged.. two traits which typify Hollywood

This is trash, and deeply disrespectful.
If you want to actually do something to help combat racism and oppression, donate to the Minnesota Freedom Fund to help pay the bail of protestors in Minneapolis.https://t.co/D0yDUAhtdK

Wtf? Man is murdered in the blood of racism and that’s the response…. a dance to a Michael Jackson song? And appropriateness of Michael Jackson singing they don’t care about us… the irony isn’t lost on me.
