While promoting his song, “Life Matters,” Wyclef spoke on Dr.Martin Luther King Jr. fighting “because all lives matter.” He deleted the tweet after Twitter started coming for him super hard.

One person tweeted,

Wyclef MLK did not fight because all lives mattered , he fought because black lives dont in the eyes of Amerikkka

Another person tweeted,

Still chuckling at Wyclef putting Martin Luther King Jr & “All Lives Matter” in the same sentence.

One Twitter user decided to @ the artist saying,

@wyclef at 10 sec u included images of a joint Black Youth Project 100 & BLM Detroit direct action. We staunchly fight for BLACK lives. @wyclef it’s odd that u would use footage from an action in support of the Movement 4 Black Lives for a tone deaf, ridiculous, ALM…thing

A visual for the song recently came out in which features footage from a protest in response to the police-involved death of Aiyana Mo’Nay Stanley-Jones. According to @MissTayAmari and @DriNicole, was used without permission. MissTayAmari says the clip was posed without permission. She took to Twitter to say,

@wyclef Around the 0:12, you feature footage of @DriNicole. She absolutely does not consent to this. Please upload the video without it.
