Mischa Barton Posts The WORST Instagram After US Shootings
America has been left reeling from the deaths of two black men who were shot by white police officers this week.
Philando Castile was shot in Minnesota as he reached for his driver's licence, while Alton Sterling was shot dead by police in Baton Rouge on Tuesday.
The shootings have sparked outrage across America, and people have been protesting in the streets.
President Barack Obama addressed the nation today, saying all Americans "should be deeply troubled" by the two fatal shootings.
There is no denying that the situation is bleak and that it deserves well thought-out responses from all involved.
That is why Mischa Barton's post has received a massive amount of backlash and has been labelled tone deaf.
The TV star posed on a yacht, holding a glass of wine and stared into the distance looking worried.
She added a long rambling post to the pic, which she uploaded to Instagram saying, “I’m truly heartbroken to watch videos like the #altonsterling execution. This may have been going on forever in the United States but thank god the pigs get caught on camera now.”
People were not happy with the post, which was quickly deleted.
See Misha Barton is a perfect example of why i don't need celebrities speaking up on social issues. Cus most of them ignorant and uninformed— Imani B (@youdoingtoomuch) 7 July 2016
