The statement of former President Barrack Obama comparing the Uvalde, Texas, school massacre and the death of George Floyd, whose second anniversary came a day after the bloodshed at the school, has created criticism from certain sectors.
“As we grieve the children of Uvalde today, we should take time to recognize that two years have passed since the murder of George Floyd under the knee of a police officer,” Obama tweeted Wednesday.
“His killing stays with us all to this day, especially those who loved him,” Obama added.
Many people including parents, were not happy with the statement of Obama since the two killings are completely different from each other.
“What in the world does the former have to do with the latter?” frum conservative commentator Ben Shapiro asked.
“Brah, this ain’t it. Little kids slaughtered at school is not the equivalent of Floyd dying after resisting arrest while high,” Blaze Media podcast host Jason Whitlock tweeted, ”This is one of the worst tweets in history,” Whitlock added.
