Hugh Jackman’s tweet has been called out since then. While, a user wrote, “Dude recently said he still hangs out with Ivanka and Jared and because he’s just not that “political” that makes it okay.” Another wrote, “The last time a photo like this went viral, it was staged and the Black kid and his entire family ended up dead. If you want to share solidarity, share this.”

A user calling out Hugh Jackman for not showing the brutal side, wrote, “I’m sorry but you can’t post that if you aren’t also sharing the videos of police brutality! The news is doing enough of sharing this bullshit instead of what’s actually going on. Peaceful protesters being attacked for no damn reason by the cops who are supposed to keep them safe.”
