Lisa Rinna: ALL Lives Matter, Okay, People?!?
Lisa Rinna is unafraid to bare her whole body on Instagram.
This we already knew.
But now it’s become clear that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member is also unafraid to bare her opinions on social media.
As much as some folks may wish she kept them to herself.
On Wednesday afternoon, the reality star Tweeted three simple words that possess a loaded backstory and potential to create quite the backlash against Rinna online.
And the words were these:
All Lives Matter.
This has become a common refrain for those opposed to the Black Lives Matter movement, as a certain segment of the popular is… well… very dumb.
The Black Lives Matter movement grew out of anger and shock over the number of African-Americans killed by police officers over the past several months, along with the lack of convictions against those officers for their actions.
It’s nothing more than a plea for equal rights.
Those who oppose it might as well walk into a fundraiser for cancer research and scream, “Hey, stop this! All diseases matter!!”
It’s the same dumb logic.
Mere minutes after Rinna made this message live, she apparently learned the meaning behind these words and quickly posted an amendment:
“OMG I had no I am deleting that tweet!”
And while we’re tempted not to believe her because husband Harry Hamlin once wore a Swastika shirt for Halloween, calling into question the couple’s beliefs …
… the recent string of Tweets prior to this one does seem to support Rinna’s ignorance defense.
In response to President Donald Trump holding a press conference in which he blamed “both sides” for the violence in Charlottesville over the weekend, the actress wrote the following:
She does seem to be against Trump.
And against Nazis.
And against White Supremacists.
She likely believed that “All Lives Matter” was some kind of rallying cry in favor of inclusiveness and equality, which is an easy mistake to make, we suppose.
Said Trump during the aforementioned press conference yesterday, touching on the events in Virginia:
“You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now.”
In a chaotic and combative Q&A, Trump appeared to equate torch-bearing white nationalists with the protesters who demonstrated against them.
“Not all” the people participating in the rally were bad, the President emphasizes.
Even for Donald Trump, the remarks qualified as a brand new low.
