Ashton Kutcher Says 'All Lives Matter' People Shouldn't Be Cancelled, Just Educated

Ashton Kutcher is explaining his thoughts about the term “All Lives Matter” amid Black Lives Matter protests nationwide against police brutality and systemic racism following the murder of George Floyd.

The 42-year-old actor and entrepreneur got emotional in a video posted to his social media on Tuesday (June 2).

“So, on Saturday, I posted a blackout of my social media channels, just posted BLM. And a lot of folks responded ‘All Lives Matter.’ And I want to talk about that a little bit because I don’t think that the people posting ‘All Lives Matter’ should be cancelled. I think they should be educated,” he said.

“We all agree All Lives Matter, but I had a really pointed experience tonight when I was putting my kids down to bed that lent the words for why Black Lives Matter. Usually, Mila and I put our kids to bed, we read them a book, and our daughter always get to go first. And tonight, as we were reading her book, my son says ‘Wait, why don’t I get to go first?’ And Mila said ‘Cause girls go first.’ And he said ‘yeah, but boys go first.’ And I looked at him and said ‘No, girls go first. You know why girls go first? For you and me, girls go first. And the reason why is, for some boys, girls don’t get a go at all. And so for you and me, girls go first,’” he continued.

“So when it comes to Black Lives Matter, I think what folks are writing All Lives Matter need to understand, is that for some people,” he went on, starting to get emotional.

“For some people, black lives don’t matter at all. So for us, black lives matter. So while you may have the best intentions in saying All Lives Matter, remember…for some people, black lives don’t matter.”

Here’s resources for how to help the Black Lives Matter movement.
