Following yesterday’s tragic turn of events in Paris, people all over the world have taken to social media to express their opinions on the situation. While many are showing support for the victims, and calling for peace and understanding, these horrific events are prime time for people to indulge in hate and ignorance as well.
Donald Trump has already come out with an “I told you so” reaction but for some reason, it was one of his tweets from January, regarding the shooting at the Charlie Hebdo offices, that regained traction yesterday and it sparked a pretty wide mix of negative (and positive) reactions. One person who took the bait was the somewhat enigmatic singer (and dude we’ve all been waiting on) Frank Ocean. Frank took to his Tumblr to respond, pretty passionately, to the tweet, saying:
“On the real though Donald Trump. How is it ‘interesting’ that these shootings happen in a country tether’s tough on guns? Tell us Don? Because it sounds like that vacuous observation was about giving your NRA-loving constituency a hand job and spinning a tragedy for political gain and I’m thinking maybe using a situation where dozens of innocents have just been murdered in the streets isn’t the best time. No?”
