Meek Mill Faces Backlash Following His Urge to Stop BLM Protests

Meek Mill came under fire for his insensitive tweet on Monday, June 1.

People need to be very careful with their words in time like these, as their messages can easily be misinterpreted. Something similar happened to the American rapper, Meek Mill. The rapper's concern for people in Philadelphia has misfired.

Meek was born and raised in Philadelphia, so when he saw his people getting hurt and die, the rapper urged them to end the protest in his old neighborhood. However, people thought it's not the right solution to the whole thing.

The rapper took to his Twitter on Monday, June 1, where on his tweet, Meek wrote, "I hope Philly riots stop today. A bunch of kids and women just died about nothing! If you official take control of your hood, no matter what it takes!"
