Frank Ocean Sends Love to Paris, Calls Out Donald Trump on Tumblr
"Chill w/ the angles"
Frank Ocean has sent out love to residents of Paris, and anyone who has been the victim of “evil anywhere in this world,” on his Tumblr. “LOVE TO PARIS AND ANY INDIVIDUAL OR FAMILY WHO’S LOST LOVED ONES TO EVIL ANYWHERE IN THIS WORLD,” he wrote. “CHILL W/ THE ANGLES.”
He couldn’t resist just one angle, though:
ON THE REAL THOUGH DONALD TRUMP. HOW IS IT ‘INTERESTING’ THAT THESE SHOOTINGS HAPPENED IN A COUNTRY THAT’S TOUGH ON GUNS? TELL US DON? BECAUSE IT SOUNDS LIKE THAT VACUOUS OBSERVATION WAS ABOUT GIVING YOUR NRA-LOVING CONSTITUENCY A HANDJOB AND SPINNING A TRAGEDY FOR POLITICAL GAIN AND I’M THINKING MAYBE USING A SITUATION WHERE DOZENS OF INNOCENTS HAVE JUST BEEN MURDERED IN THE STREETS ISN’T THE BEST TIME. NO?
Pitchfork points out that Ocean’s comment references one of Donald Trump’s more tasteless tweets, to put it mildly, following January’s Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris, which others have unearthed in light of last night’s terrorist attacks.
