The post Madonna Mocked Over George Floyd Tribute Video appeared first on Consequence of Sound.

Madonna would be wise to skip Instagram once and awhile. On Thursday, the veteran pop icon shared a video of her 14-year-old son David Banda dancing to Michael Jackson’s oft-forgotten HIStory single “They Don’t Care About Us”.

The clip was meant to serve as a tribute to George Floyd, who was tragically killed by Minnesota police officers on Monday evening. In a caption, Madonna wrote, “Brutal murder travels around the world my son David Dances to honor and pay tribute to George and His Family and all Acts of Racism and Discrimination that happen on a daily basis in America.”

Not surprisingly, the message arrived with a deafening thud across the Internet as thousands mocked the Material Girl for the performative post.
