Apart from netizens, even Lana Del Rey’s singer colleagues, Tinashe and Kehlani took to their social media handles to express their disappointment over the clip shared by Summertime Sadness singer.

Kehlani had a tweet that read, “Please remove your Instagram post it’s dangerous as f*ck and a very poor choice of moments to post. by all means protest, but DO NOT endanger people with your very massive platform. oh and turn on your f*cin comments on man”

Following which Tinashe tweeted, “@LanaDelRey why the f*ck are you posting people looting stores on your page literally WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM”

After a series of tweets and receiving backlash from netizens Lana Del Rey deleted the video following which Kehlani and Tinashe too deleted their respective tweets.

But it didn’t end there, Lana Del Rey re-posted cut-down footage still beginning with a male protester standing on a burnt-out car, holding a sign that read, ‘No justice, No peace’.

On being informed about the same by netizens Kehlani was in complete shock, as she tweeted, ” i was told the post was deleted and that was my point so i deleted the tweet but i guess it’s not deleted it’s just reposted ? leaving it up on my story but hopefully if she gets enough dm’s she will take it completely down.”

Lana Del Rey also has been in the news from the past few days following her insensitive comments regarding female artists of color.
