“It is terrible Breonna lost her life, and as I said earlier, I believe the cops may have mishandled the raid and been aggressive after being fired on,” Lucas tweeted. “With that being said, what is the punishment the world is calling for? Those men were on the job and have families as well.”
He continued: “If I angered anyone with my tweets regarding the Breonna Taylor case, I do apologize. My intent is to point out the [misinformation] regarding the case and to bring awareness that this case is being sensationalized for political purposes and to cause confusion near an election.”
Here’s what several respondents had to say on Twitter:
Regarding JW Lucas. I am calling Republic Records / Universal to remove my song “Bungee Jump” from all platforms.
I don’t want any associations to anyone who can’t empathize with what’s going on in the black community yet profits from it.
