Tyler Joseph of Twenty One Pilot: Social media platforms are a house to all types of opinions from users of all parts of the globe. Trollers, influencers, and many such people take it to these networking platforms to be vocal about things that bother them. Users look forward to celebrities and famous personalities to share their thoughts on the current hot topics in the news nowadays. The same recently happened with Tyler Joseph who was massively trolled online because of his tweet.
Twenty One Pilot singer was asked strongly by his community and fans to share his views on such a concerned topic of racial injustice repeatedly. The singer took his time to finally make it his social media sites and posted a tweet that made him receive backlash from a number of people.
Joseph’s tweet read, “You guys keep asking me to use my platforms. Feels good to dust these bad boys off.” Tyler was seen wearing his white platform shoes in the tweet.
A lot of people found him to be joking on such a serious matter and found it to be very insensitive on his behalf. There were a series of comments addressing him for unfeeling nature. One user commented telling him that it wasn’t too late for him to delete his tweet. Another responded saying its too disappointing seeing him joke about it. There were some sincere messages from people too telling him about the fact of thousands of people looking forward to seeing him caring about such issues.
Tyler Joseph eventually responded to this backlash by a followed up tweet showing his support for the Black Lives Matter movement. “I respect all the warriors out there fighting for different causes,” he tweeted in part. “There is honor in it, purpose, and it can make our world better. I just want to remind you what I’m fighting for: your mental health is more important today than it ever has been. You’re not alone.” Tyler said. He had a lot to say in his apology for his previous tweet. He confirmed that the mental health of people is his utmost priority and that he is sorry if his words hurt some. Joseph also linked a donation campaign in his tweet in order to raise awareness about the issue.
