Billie Eilish and Gwyneth Paltrow slam 'All Lives Matter' movement

MUMBAI:  In the past few days, people across the USA, including several celebrities, have been breaking the social distancing rule to step out of their houses and protest against the killing of George Floyd. People are coming together to raise their voices in support of the black victims of police brutality as part of the Black Lives Matter movement. Various celebrities from Hollywood and the music industry have joined the movement through social media or by participating in the protests. 

While #BlackLivesMatter trend is taking social media by storm a group of people has been criticising the movement by using #Alllivesmatter. This is serving as a blanket statement that is being used to diminish the issue in focus. The protests in the USA started after Floyd, a 46-year-old security guard, died after police officer Derek Chauvin handcuffed him and kneeled on his back rendering him unable to breathe. The horrifying incident was caught on the camera and the clip instantly went viral on social media. The disgraced officer has since been fired and charged in the incident.

Recently, a list of celebrities, including Billie Eilish, Gwyneth Paltrow, Seth Rogan, Pink, and Ashton Kutcher, noticed the trends and slammed the people for using the slogan ‘All Lives Matter’ instead of ‘Black Lives Matter.’
