Justin Bieber was recently featured as a musical guest at SNL and sang his new song ‘Lonely.’ After that, he made his last two posts on social media by drawing attention to the violence that Black Americans were subjected to via his official Instagram account, but he was criticized on the grounds that not only black lives mattered, but all lives mattered, not just one race.
In his last post on his Instagram account, Justin Bieber showed support for the Black Lives Matter movement, which was launched after the difficulties and deaths of black people for a long time and still continues in the United States.
Many celebrities have posted on this subject and received some reaction from time to time. For this reason, Bieber started his post by saying that some people may not understand what the purpose of posting “black lives matter,” and he put an end to the criticisms by saying to everyone that it was important to him.
In the continuation of the post, Justin Bieber explained that some situations were very heavy on his heart, and he would use social media platforms to share issues that matter to him most and remind people how evil racism is.
Moreover, he explained that racism is ingrained in American culture, so to get rid of this evil, black brothers and sisters should know that they are supported and not alone.
Bieber, finally, with a warning, underlined that even if anyone is uncomfortable with this situation, he will never stop supporting them and will always talk about it.
After Justin Bieber’s clear support message, the post’s comments section was filled with a lot of criticism, and people wrote that not only black lives matter, but all lives are valuable, and everyone should be supported.
Upon these criticisms, Bieber explained that saying black lives matter doesn’t mean other lives don’t, but black people are now the most affected ones. He also emphasized that people should be the ointment where the pain is most and asked those critics a simple question, “Why can’t black lives simply matter?”
Here’s what he said:
“Some may say what good does it do to post” black lives matter … “I’ll tell you why. I want everyone to know what matters to me. I want people to know what is heavy on my heart. want people to know I haven’t forgotten.
I want to use the platform. I have to remind people that racism is evil, and it is ingrained in our culture. I want my black brothers and sisters to feel supported, seen, and valued. Bothers you, I just want you to know I’m not going to stop talking about it. Ever.”
