Stefflon Don Under Fire For “Joking About Black Lives Matter” In Now-Deleted IG Post

Published: Thursday 20th Jun 2019 by Rashad

‘A No No’ is just what rising rapstress Stefflon Don committed on June 19th (Juneteenth of all days) when a post lifted to her Instagram account to promote her new single was interpreted as tone deaf.

The British femcee – teasing the release of the music video for her new single ‘Phone Down’ (click here to watch) – probably should have put hers down as she captioned a video of her “being arrested” by a white police officer with the phrase, “Bloodclaat mi a get locked up Black Lives Matter,” as people laughed in the background.

Needless to say, many of her followers didn’t exactly get the joke.  After calling her out on the culturally insensitive scene, Steff immediately clapped back…

In addition to the ‘president’ comment above, Don reportedly told commenters:

 “Get your sensitive ass out of my comments plz about Black Lives ain’t no joke who da fuq said it was? And if you aint physically done nothing about it then definitely don’t say nothing because you don’t really care you think typing on insta will solve your problems lol.”

“Educate your self. By the way slavery aint no joke either but you still tune in to watch the movie that makes the same white man who enslaved you money and you applaud it and they get rewarded for it now go underneath the real enemies comments not mine.”

Her responses only added fuel to the fire – a heat that eventually led her to delete the post (scene above courtesy of our friends at TSR).  The deletion certainly didn’t stop Twitter users from weighing in.   See some of their responses to the hoopla below:

    Who this woman?

    She was legit the it girl.. her music and look had many watching.. and right around the time she started adding her thoughts to the Cardi and Nicki drama, along with the lame ass live video w/ Drake, her s***/cool started to diminish. If she just keep quiet/put it in the music, she could save herself… but if baby girl keeps this up, she’ll end up unlikable like Tinashe.

    Please don’t waste your artistry by trying to be too big of a persona.

      Girl bye. Stefflon Don is the only authentic patois speaking entertainer/rapper crossover artist with Jamaican ancestry. Nobody’s in her lane , she ain’t going nowhere especially with Jaifaican Nicki Garbaj.

      • Faf June 21, 2019

        No. She’s not from Jamaica so how is her patois authentic?

    This is why Canceled Artist need to stay Canceled. We don’t know Her

    • NickiGarbajisCancelled June 20, 2019

      Y’all say she cancelled but she the only UK female rapper poppin’ and making chart moves. What don’t y’all put all that energy supporting Ms Banks and Lady Leshurr Who are Team Nicki? Fake ass bandwagon supporters. Listen good, nobody will support that witch’s legacy 10 years from now. She’s a horrible human being.

    Sensationalized mess. It was mere joke.
    Drops new music same day as Nicki so her team orchestrated a smear campaign to blacklist her. Understand Stefflon Don ain’t going anywhere. Stay mad Garbz. The biggest karma awaits!! ?
