“At the end of the day bra, I want to see change as well, man. If I offended you, I apologize. Emotions are at is highest right now. I was just trying to bring light. Tweets can be [interpretated] in the wrong way sometimes.”

Similarly, B.Simone was also going through a similar problem about how she thought rioting was the positive way to handle anger on George Floyd’s death. However, it backfired and people got offended and pointed out the hypocrisy of Simone’s thoughts on the rioting against the actions of Jesus Christ.

Further, she too posted an apology for offending many users and clarifying her tweet as

“What we do with that anger is what makes the difference. I don’t want you to think I’m not gonna be on the front line and I’m just gonna sit in the house and pray all day! We need both!”
