Actress Nia Long is seeing firsthand what happens when you offend people on social media.

While the #BlackLivesMatter movement is getting a lot of heat from conservative based media pundits, it probably wasn’t a good idea for her to proclaim her alliance with the #AllLivesMatter movement in a recent Instagram post.

Hip Hop Hollywood writes:

Many feel the #AllLivesMatter hashtag is being used to distract or undermine the BLM’s message, one crafted out of frustration over numerous Black men and women being killed by police officers. Shortly after long posted her IG image, followers began expressing their disdain for her actions:

“I decided to delete Nia Long. No longer a follower. Good bye Nia,” one user wrote.

Another follower added, “Looks like someone is looking for employment & white checks. If all lives really mattered there would be no need for the black lives matter movement. Girl, you done f*cked up NOW. Black people are the only ones in your corner supporting you.”

“If all lives matter, we wouldn’t need to exclaim black lives matter … the purpose of the phrase to emphasize that Black lives are just as valuable and important as everyone else’s and therefore should be treated equally … smh this truly disappointing Nia!!!!”

Nia hasn’t responded to the backlash as of yet. Check out the photo below:


  1. No Nia educate yourself! Why do people not understand what Black Lives Matter really means it’s not saying other lives don’t matter because it’s been proven that other lives do matter. But we are the ones getting killed with no justice. My God it’s not that hard to comprehend smh and on that note goodnight!

  2. Focus is on the wrong thing. I care a lot more that she’s doing wrk with the innocence project. Thats awesome. Good work Nia. Yall crying that she said alm not recognizing all the blk lives that benefit from that organization.

  3. Good that she’s actually attempting to make change but horrible that she’s deflecting and probably trying to appease ‘other’. Smh another one bites the dust.

  4. she act like they gon give her an oscar or something….girl you could have invented the camera and you still wouldnt get an oscar. by the way, who was oscar anyway?? lol
