A$AP Rocky Speaks Out After Marching In George Floyd Protest

Recommended Posts

In the past few days, we've witnessed a revolt. An uprising, if you will, following the recent deaths of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd. Many celebrities have spoken up against the injustices that have been going on across the country while others have faced a barrage of criticism for not using their platform to speak out.

A$AP Rocky has faced backlash for comments surrounding Black Lives Matter and the 2015 Ferguson protests. It was brought up heavily when he was incarcerated in Sweden. He has since addressed the comments but recently, the rapper was spotted at the protests in Los Angeles, though he claimed he never shared it because it wasn't for clout.

"WE PROTESTED N DEEZ STREETS, NO PRESS ,NO CAMERAS ,NO INSTAGRAM .NOT 4 NO BRAGGIN RIGHTS OR PHOTO OPPS, SHIT WAS JUST GENUINE. 4 ONCE ITS LIKE DA WHOLE [world] SHARED THE SAME PAIN, I DONT POST MY EVERY MOVE, NOT MY THING BUT WE FAR FROM SILENT N ITS STILL FUK12," he declared.

Despite claiming there were no cameras, nor was he there for Instagram, it seems like that wasn't entirely true. Photos emerged of the rapper on the grounds looking fashionably rebellious. There's also an AWGE trailer including a clip of Rocky posing in front of graffiti reading "Fuck 12."

Check out Rocky's tweet and the pictures below.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
