The murder of George Floyd has elicited reactions from people of all walks of life, including pop icon Madonna.
The singer has been a focus of conversation after sharing her puzzling “Quarantine Diaries” on Instagram, and on Thursday, Madonna posted a three-and-a-half-minute video of her son, David Banda, dancing in tribute to Floyd.
David is seen showing off Madonna’s good friend Michael Jackson moves as he dances to the late icon’s controversial song, “They Don’t Care About Us.”
“As news of George Floyds brutal murder travels around the world my son David Dances to honor and pay tribute to George and His Family and all Acts of Racism and Discrimination that happen on a daily basis in America,” Madonna wrote in a caption to the clip. She ended her message with the hashtags “#davidbanda #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd #MichaelJackson.”
It didn’t take long for the video to trend on Twitter, and even Guapdad 4000 to weigh in with a joke.
“Madonna your sons dance has cured the world of all racism thank you for those impeccable moves,” the rapper wrote. “I can’t imagine what the frick we would do with out it !!”
While people have commended the pop icon for her addition to raising awareness, some people have claimed that she missed the mark.
