Read Eilish's full post below. "Black lives matter, We have a platform, and we have a duty to our Black members, employees, creators and talent to speak up." the streaming giant tweeted Saturday.

"IF I HEAR ONE MORE WHITE PERSON SAY "aLL liVeS maTtEr" ONE MORE FUCKING TIME IM GONNA LOSE MY FUCKING MIND".

Hundreds of people have gathered in Trafalgar Square to show solidarity with protesters in the U.S. who are demonstrating following the death of a man during an arrest, as well as alleged police brutality in the UK.


"It's calling attention to the fact that society clearly thinks black lives don't f-cking matter", she added.

The prolonged assertion, posted Saturday morning, was captioned with the hashtags #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd and #BlackLivesMatter. Now, Billie Eilish has joined in, posting a lengthy and passionate Instagram post. No one is saying your life if not hard...this is not about you.

"In case your pal will get a lower on their arm are you gonna wait to offer all your pals a bandaid first as a result of all arms matter?"


Hopefully the way she broke it down will have educated some of the many young followers she has, and encourages them to use their voices as well. "No you're gonna help your friend because they are in pain because they are in need because they are bleeding!" the teen wrote. "Why are white people given opportunities that people of other races aren't?" "If someone's house is on fire and someone is stuck inside the house, are you gonna make the fire department go to every other house on the block first because all houses matter??? NO!" Why are immigrants persecuted?

A sign reading "Ahmaud Arbery" is seen at the protest, referring to an unarmed black man who was fatally shot in Georgia earlier this year. Eilish wrote. "Why is it okay for white people to protest literally being asked to stay at home while carrying semi-automatic weapons?" Black children matter. Black loves matters.
