Here Are The Worst Reactions To Prince’s Death On Conservative Social Media

Today, the heartbreaking news broke that legendary music icon Prince passed away at age 57. It only took minutes after the news broke for racists on Twitter to begin vilifying him for his flamboyancy and gender fluidity, slandering him for being a Black Lives Matter activist, and for standing up for justice in the Freddie Gray case and the Baltimore riots.

It unfortunately comes as little surprise that the dark, racist depths of the internet reacted in such a way. Prince will forever be remembered for his incredible music that touched millions of people, earned seven Grammys and thirty nominations, and sold over a hundred million records. He was a vibrant force of nature, the likes of which we will never see again, his memory deserves better than this.
