Mathers backed Stafford on his verified Twitter account, supporting the insane effort of the NFL players. Em appreciated his awareness-raising effort by drawing attention to his amazing article.

“Proud of Matt for writing this, everyone needs to use their platform to speak out. #BlackLivesMatter.”

A Twitter fan supported his tweet and said:
“All lives matter Marshall.”
Another user stated:
“The comments/replies here are disgusting, sad, missing the point. I read the article. I tweeted the article (not RT Em’s tweet). We HAVE to recognize the racial and financial disparities in this country. And do what we can to remedy them.”
