The Hills alum got some serious backlash over his use of the hashtag #AllLivesMatter after endorsing a message saying the recent police shootings have “nothing to do with race.”
On Sunday, Brody’s friend Taylor Mosher posted an Instagram comment criticizing the conduct of Terence Crutcher and Keith Lamont Scott, the two black men who were shot and killed by police over the past two weeks.
The now-deleted post read:
“I normally don’t speak about this type of stuff, but this is just ridiculous. I can’t even watch the news anymore without getting pissed off. This has nothing to do with race. White, black, brown, any color├óΓé¼┬ªif you have an officer of the law telling you to exit your vehicle (or do anything for that matter)├óΓé¼┬ªyou comply. And not only do you comply, but you do so willingly and follow directions completely. And why in the world would you exit that vehicle with a weapon in hand (allegedly?!) That makes no sense! And if, let’s just say, you DON’T have a gun, why would you not put your hands up in the air and state “I do not have a gun” so that the officers can clearly see that you don’t??”
To top it all off, Brodes posted a pic on IG after getting heat, with just one controversial hashtag as the caption:

Thankfully, Twitter users were quick to call out the professional DJ for his comments, swiftly reminding him he has no idea what the f*ck he’s talking about for MANY reasons.
Critics pointed out that Jenner lives in a right wing-leaning bubble with the rest of his famous family and was using #AllLivesMatter to deny the experience of black people.
What do YOU think? Ch-ch-check out some of the best comments (below)!
Brody Jenner, like the rest of the Kardashians, is not trending off of his talent, but off black men. Sounds about right…
