David Guetta criticized for tone-deaf George Floyd tribute

Recommended Posts

David Guetta's heart was in the right place, but the delivery was... off. 

“The world is going through difficult times and America, too, actually,” Guetta said. “Last night, I knew we were going to do this and I made a special record … in honor of George Floyd. I really hope we can see more unity and more peace when already things are so difficult.”

The superstar DJ dropped a beat behind Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I have a dream" speech and proceeded to give George Floyd's family a "shout-out." EEK.

It's a bit cringe to watch. How do we feel about this, Exhale?

Omg how out of touch is that :peasants: it’s almost like hey

“George Floyd got murdered but I hope this song I made for you makes you feel better.” 

it’s not really the time for music... Especially by giving a shoutout. Not a good way to show support. :katycream:

The shout-out part was just... SMH. Like bruh you're not in a Vegas nightclub

hey i was just wondering, if u ever die do you give me permission to DJ rave music at your funeral?  i'll give your family a shoutout before i do it. it's the same logic. 

i wouldn't mind (me personally)


but I can see why people don't like it, most people prefer a more solemn sound especially during this kind of situation
