Singer Alecia Moore who is better known as 'Pink,' released a Twitter video on Wednesday, unloading on Trump supporters.
“How can anyone call themself a patriot or American if you re-elect a president that doesn’t govern, respect, or represent half of our country?” Pink said during the video. “That’s not America. That’s your America.”
“That’s not America,” she added. “So you either worship the Confederate flag, which is not our flag, and it never will be, or you’re a hypocrite that doesn’t actually understand the meaning of patriotism or what it means to be an American.”
“Truth,” the singer said at the end of the video.
Pink also shared a statement from teenager and singer Billie Eilish who came out in support of Black Lives Matter while slamming "all lives matter."
“I have an enormous platform and I try really hard to be respectful and take time to think through what I say and how I say it,” Eilish said. “But holy f***ing s***, I’m just gonna start talking.”
“If I hear one more white person say ‘aLL liVeS maTtEr’ one more f***ing time, I’m gonna lose my f***ing mind,” she said. “Will you shut the f*** up? No one is saying your life is not hard. “No one is saying literally anything at all about you. All you mfs do is find a way to make everything about yourself. This is not about you. Stop making everything about you. You are not in need. You are not in danger.”
Pink later replied to a commenter by scolding the user as the "epitome of white privilege."
“Totally get where you’re coming from. HOWEVER, as a person with a lawyer brain, I have to say… when you single out one race and say ‘that’ race matters. You ARE implicitly saying other races don’t matter as much. It is automatically inferred,” the commenter said. “I believe it does this situation a disjustice [sic] by putting it in the #blacklivesmatter category. This could happen to ANY ONE OF US! THAT is the atrocity! THAT is the REAL issue. It is not about race.”
“You are the epitome of white privilege and the saddest part is that you don’t even hear yourself and probably never will,” Pink responded, offering no evidence to back up her claim.

Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Protests started popping up across the nation last week over the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a police officer had his knee on the 46-year-old’s neck for over eight minutes during an arrest, as shown in viral video footage.
However, things quickly turned ugly; arson, looting, and violence spiked in places like Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, New York City, Rochester, Richmond, and other cities.
Since the incident, all four officers involved in the arrest have been fired, investigations from the FBI and state law enforcement have been opened, and, on Friday, the officer at the center of the incident was taken into custody. The other three officers have since been charged.
