Video: Jennifer Lopez - "All Lives Matter" phrase was meant to be inclusive


Jennifer Lopez has said she did not realise the "sensitivity" surrounding the social media hashtag All Lives Matter after she was criticised for tweeting the phrase to promote her Orlando benefit song.

The US music star posted a picture on Twitter with the controversial message after performing her tribute to the victims and survivors of the mass shooting in Florida which claimed 49 lives.

She deleted the tweet following a backlash from social media users, who argued the hashtag AllLivesMatter has been used as a counter-argument to BlackLivesMatter, the phrase inspired by the fatal shootings of black people by police in the US.
