Laila Ali Believes “All Lives Matter”

Laila Ali is the latest A-lister to chime in on police brutality. The famous daughter of Muhammad Ali and retired boxing champ admits that she isn’t vocal publicly about her feelings about the black lives matter movement and part of her hesitancy is because of how some of her sponsors may react. Bossip reports, that during a recent interview, she says

By me not posting, it doesn’t mean that black lives don’t matter. To me, it’s obvious that black lives matter. And then… I’m like, what is posting going to do? What is speaking out going to do? “Yes, black lives matter. Yes, white lives matter, asian lives matter. All lives matter. And that’s kind of what my focus is.

But it’s hard because, you know, you’ve got sponsors and you’ve got this and you’ve got that. And you don’t want to step on anybody’s toes. And you’re trying to be politically correct, but at the same time trying to uplift your people.

Do you agree or disagree with Laila’s comments on All Lives Matter?

    At least she was honest…

    BUT

    This money hungry bish is full of shat. Money comes before right and wrong, how? Where’s your moral compass?

    Wow so very disappointed in the daughter of the “Greatest of All Time” her dad stood for something despite all the odds stacked against him. To say that she is worried about what her sponsors would say only shows that the apple didn’t fall anywhere off the Muhammad Ali tree. You must stand for something or you will fall for anything!!!!

    Obviously she and her husband have a limited ability to bring in the type of $$$ they want so it’s more important to keep the check signers happy.
