With that, among many others, actor, writer and comedian Seth Rogan posted an image to Instagram that promoted the slogan, along with the caption:
“If this is a remotely controversial statement to you, feel free to unfollow me“.
Of course, many people were offended by this because that’s the way of the world now. Luckily though, Seth Rogan didn’t take kindly to them.
Taking to the comments section of his Instagram post, people started to reply with the likes of “All lives matter,” etc etc, and there’s really no excuse for that behaviour. Of course all lives matter. No one is disputing that. The issue is that there’s a huge disparity in how that concept is put into action. Essentially, for as long as the human race evolved from the primordial soup of live, all lives have mattered, just the whiter you are the more they matter.
It’s not even slightly fair or humane and the Black Lives Matter movement is one that endeavours to see justice for those who have been oppressed since birth. ‘All lives matter’ is the antithesis of the point and when people commented that on Seth Rogan’s post, more often than not, he had the perfect two words for them.
You can’t really say fairer than that, can you?
As if commenting ‘All Lives Matter’ (although they’re mostly going for ‘All life’s matter’ because they’re idiots) is going to change anyone’s mind. As if Seth Rogan will go “You’re right actually,” delete the post and then put one up that says ‘All Lives Matter’.
Seriously bizarre. There’s an alarming amount of cretins in the world.
