We’re pretty sure Jenny hasn’t even been back to the block in eons — her pop-up hangout sessions with French notwithstanding. Still, J Lo’s most recent actions have us thinking maybe she’s farther from the hood than we thought.
On Tuesday (July 12), the singer tweeted out “#LoveMakesTheWorldGoRound #AllLivesMatter.” Then, a few minutes later she deleted it, no doubt realizing perhaps that wasn’t the best stance to take. You know, being a Boricua from the block and all.
Talk about going Hollywood. The Internet is cold and heartless though, so the screenshot has been circulating and folks have been responding.
According to Page Six, a source close to the situation believes that J Lo wan’t thinking when she sent the tweet. “Honestly, she didn’t realize the implications of the hashtag. Once she did she took the post down.”
What’s also a bit unnerving is the fact that Lopez is currently promoting her new track “Love Makes the World Go Round,” so she hashtagged the song and undercut the #BlackLivesMatter movement in a single tweet.
The song is cool, positive even. Lopez performed the track with Lin-Manuel Miranda on the Monday taping of the Today show. Fifty of the Orlando shooting survivors and their families were in attendance.
The record will also benefit the Hispanic Federation’s Proyecto Somos Orlando initiative — but J Lo is kinda wack for this one. Put her on the list with Fetty Wap referencing #AllLivesMatter and defending it by reminding us that his kids are of mixed race.
Maxwell tried it last week, too. After the Dallas police shootings, he tweeted #HumanLivesMatter and #AmericanLivesMatter but at least he had enough sense to tag #BlackLivesMatter in a later tweet.
