Donald Trump’s Response to the Baltimore Riots Proves He’s an Actual Human Monster

Our thoughts are with the people of Baltimore. All of them.

Baltimore protests against the death of Freddie Gray, who died April 19 while in police custody, turned violent this week. As with Ferguson before it, many celebrities have taken to Twitter and Instagram to share their thoughts and support on what’s going on. Notably, The Wire creator David Simon posted to his blog:

“If you can’t seek redress and demand reform without a brick in your hand, you risk losing this moment for all of us in Baltimore. Turn around. Go home. Please.”

His post has been met with backlash, as have many posts and takes on what’s going on.

Some celebs just tweeted their support.

Some knew a picture is worth a thousand words.
Some pointed out the hypocrisy of decrying the riots but not the impetus.

Some acknowledged the complicated nature of protests like this that come in response to violence against the black community.

We all want Justice. And our city will get the answers we are looking for. My deepest sympathy goes out to the GRAY Family. To see my city in a State of Emergency is just shocking. We need to protect our city, not destroy it. What happens when we get the answers that we want, and the media attention is not there anymore? We go back to being the same ol Baltimore City again. If not yourself, then Think about the youth. How this will impact them. Let's build our city up not tear it down. Although, we want justice, let's look at the real issues at hand. For example, When was the last school built in Baltimore? That's just one example. I know my community is fed up. I'm all about fighting for what we believe in. The anger, the resentment, the neglect that our community feels right now, will not change over night. Continue, fighting for what you believe in. But remember, it takes no time to destroy something. But, it can take forever to build it back up. Peace7. #Thisonehitshome #BeMore #LetsNotFallForTheTrap "Please Understand What State Of Emergency Mean"(Destroy and Conquer) #StayMe7o

Some were grossed out by the media’s handling of the whole thing.

While others defended the media.

And some were Donald Trump, an actual human monster.

Freddie Gray’s mother, Gloria Darden, asked for an end to the violence. “Don’t do it like this,” she told the media. “Don’t tear up the whole city just for him. That’s wrong.”
