Netizens believe that this quote parodies the “Black Lives Matter” movement, that was started to propagate racial equality in the USA and other parts of the world. After facing a lot of criticism, the model has finally reacted to the controversy and said:

“The past 24 hours has allowed me to realise that most of yall are stuck in a hive mind mentality. You do what the group tells you to do and think what the group tells you to think. Witnessing someone break free from ‘the agenda’ sends you all into such a panic that you will do whatever it takes to force them back into the box that you feel should exist in.”
