Selena Gomez Tweets And Deletes Shocking Reason For Not Supporting #BlackLivesMatter


Selena Gomez was among the first of Taylor Swift’s few remaining squad members to take to social media to defend the star after Kim Kardashian exposed her for lying and playing the victim last night.

However, things took a slightly sinister turn when the singer found herself at the centre of her own controversy after tweeting her truly shocking reason for not supporting #BlackLivesMatter.

And although she has since deleted the tweet, she’d probably be disappointed to know that screenshots last a lifetime.

It all started when Selena tweeted: “There are more important things to talk about… Why can’t people use their voice for something that f*cking matters?

"Truth is last thing we need right now is hate, in any form.”

One of Selena’s followers couldn’t agree with her sentiment more, taking the opportunity to ask why, on that note, Selena and Taylor hadn’t tweeted about #BlackLivesMatter in the past week.

Twitter user @Prasejeebus responded: “Good question! Why haven’t your or Taylor said a thing about #BlackLivesMatter or police brutality?”

To which Selena replied: “Oh lol, so that means if I hashtag something I save lives?

"No - I could give two f*cks aout ‘sides’. You don’t know what I do.”


Unsurprisingly, the response provoked a huge backlash and it wasn’t long before #SelenaIsOver party was trending right beneath the #KimExposedTaylorParty.

Ooft, there sure were a lot of parties for a Sunday night…


Selena hasn’t commented on the now-deleted tweet since, but did write: “This industry is so disappointing yet the most influential smh”.
