Singer-songwriter and record producer Keri Hilson, who is best known for her hit single ‘The Way I Are', got dragged on the internet after she posted about freedom of speech on social media on her Instagram story, but ended up deleting it later. The twist in the tale is she expressed her thoughts on freedom of speech in connection to outgoing President Donald Trump’s Twitter account suspension.

The 38-year-old crooner shared a detailed post hinting that Trump facing a Twitter ban might be wrong. Trump permanently got banned from Twitter and Facebook over posting information that misled users about the results of the presidential election and also encouraged the mob that stormed the Capitol on January 6. The unfortunate event was discussed across the globe.

What did Keri Hilson say?

Taking it to her official Instagram account with more than 2M followers, Hilson shared a long text on her Instagram stories along with a screenshot of Trump’s suspended Twitter account. The singer later deleted the Instagram story but one Twitter user got the screenshot of the story and shared it on the micro-blogging site. In the screenshot, Hilson’s long post reads: “This may be funny but it is a little dangerous too. Take Trump out of it for a moment... a democracy must include freedom of speech. Imagine other leaders or popular figures not being able to voice their opinion if it opposes the majority of world leaders... our freedom of speech being taken from us slowly but surely (censorship). If the leader of the "free world" can be removed, imagine that same right of civilians. Imagine believing every time you read, 'false information detected and propaganda, deceptive reports, and flat out lies being the only thing we see," adding an emoticon of eyes in the end.

Did Internet cancel Keri Hilson?

The screenshot shared by the Twitter user went viral and Hilson was soon trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons. A lot of social media users slammed the award-winning singer where one said, “Keri Hilson also thought 5G caused COVID, sooooo no one should be taking her seriously about her thoughts on free speech lol.” Another posted, “She is wrong, he has the biggest platform in the world at the White House and freedom of speech doesn’t exclude consequences.” One posted, “Keri Hilson girl, are you not tired of getting dragged.”

Another user shared, “Keri Hilson just proved why we canceled her Black a** in January 2017! If doing too much, were a person, she would be the poster child!” One person added, “Beyonce suspended her career and she worries for Trump. Go figure.” Another added, “Yes, Keri Hilson said some dumb sh*t, but is she a Trump supporter. Please tell me she’s not. I want to...I *must* believe that she *really* believes the Trump bans across social media is bad for the rest of us. Stupid, yes, but to think she’s a Trump supporter....”
