Country Star Chris Stapleton Shows Support For Black Lives Matter And Trump Supporters Are Losing It
Country star Chris Stapleton said this week that there was a “broad awakening” in the country after protests started breaking out after the killing of George Floyd.
During an interview with CBS, Stapleton expressed his support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
“You know, I thought we were living in a different country. And that’s 100 percent real,” the singer told CBS This Morning in an interview that aired Tuesday. “I feel like the country that I thought we were living in was a myth.”
“Do I think Black lives matter? Absolutely … I don’t know how you could think they don’t,” he added.
Trump supporters didn’t take Stapleton’s support for Black lives well. Some of them even called BLM a “terrorist” organization.
Take a look at how conservatives responded:
Really Chris. I'm sure you don't truly believe in the break up of the nuclear family as a goal listed on the BLM website.
You're falling for propaganda brah.

Chris Stapleton on supporting Black Lives Matter, America's 'broad awakening': 'I thought we were living in a different country' https://t.co/rOtYTufDlP via @Yahoo A small amount of research will show BLM is not about equality or justice. BLM is marxist communist movement.

Note to Chris: EVERYONE who isn’t literally a Skinhead or KKK doofus believes black lives absolutely matter. The question is whether to be dumb enough to believe the America-hating lies of Marxist BLM, the organization. And you’re dumber than we thought. https://t.co/HNFjKNxyRQ
