Trembling in rage
Yeah, we should probably give them some space. Clearly they have some . . . strong feelings about the video.

Seems like all we’ve been getting is hit after hit. . . not that we’re complaining! We need 2020 to have something good come out of it.

All jokes aside, these artists are showing people why representation matters so much by giving us more of it. Good on them.
