Celebrity News And Gossip: Stefflon Don Deletes Black Lives Matter Instagram Post
Stephanie Victoria Allen more popularly known as Stefflon Don, was dragged by critics over the weekend after she mocked Black Lives Matter in her promotional clip for her new single. In the now-deleted Instagram post, Stefflon posted a staged video in which she’s being handcuffed by a white police officer and placed in the back of his vehicle above the caption, “Bloodclaat mi a get locked up Black Lives Matter.”
The British rapper was heavily criticized and the comments section was used to react to the classless post. They pointed out that Don posted the video on Juneteenth, the day in 1865 when slaves in Texas were belatedly freed, thus marking the emancipation of all slaves in the U.S. One user wrote, “”Child if this is a joke you picked the worst timing! I know you’re from overseas but here in America it’s JUNETEENTH”. She wrote in a since-deleted comment, “Tell America yall need a new President”.

“Get your sensitive ass out of my comments plz about Black Lives ain’t no joke who da fuq said it was? And if you aint physically done nothing about it then definitely don’t say nothing because you don’t really care you think typing on insta will solve your problems lol,” she responded to another. “Educate your self. By the way slavery aint no joke either but you still tune in to watch the movie that makes the same white man who enslaved you money and you applaud it and they get rewarded for it now go underneath the real enemies comments not mine.”?
Twitter users continued to criticize her staged video despite her rebuttals.
Stefflon Don trying to break into the American market but making black lives matter jokes. Hate to see it.

Can somebody please tell Stefflon Don that joking about being arrested & hollering black lives matter is not appropriate. Does she live under a rock? Did we not just witness Phoenix PD & Hawthorne PD act up?
