Fantasia Barrino‘s heart may have been in the right place when she decided to organize her poorly-themed “All Lives Matter” concert. The R&B star cancelled the Charlotte concert Sunday due to logistical reasons, but not before Twitter cancelled Fantasia for standing in tandem with the All Lives crew.
According to a New York Daily News report, Ms. Barrino had to cancel the show due to Charlotte police denying her access to Romare Bearden Park where the event was due to take place Sunday evening. The Carolina Panthers hosted the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, and the show couldn’t go on as a result. Anthony Hamilton, John P. Kee, and Dennis Reed were also slated to perform.
Barrino issued a Facebook Live statement after taking down her Twitter and Instagram posts urging fans to gather at the park. The video displayed she and her husband doubling down on the whole “let’s come together as one” stance. However, the damage was done once Twitter took hold of the news that the “Hear Me Now!” concert had the sub-billing of “All Lives Matter.”
Naturally, users went all the way in on the American Idol alum and it wasn’t pretty. You can check out some of the slander below and on the following pages. While Fantasia might be the swiftest bunny rabbit in the forest, someone should have at least pulled her to the side before she planned this.

Y'all are packing up Fantasia and Anthony's things? Y'all said to hell with the quotations! "All Lives Matter" shouldn't even be on there.
