Tyler Joseph, the frontman of Twenty One Pilots, was slammed for posting a series of tweets about mental health while keeping mum on the Black Lives Matter movement. Tyler was labeled as 'insensitive' and 'ignorant' following his tweets.

The Grammy-winning artist, who has a good social media presence in different platforms, apologized on Twitter, saying, “My tweet wasn’t suppose to be about human rights. so in case you are wondering where i stand: Black Lives Matter. i just wanted to take a moment to raise awareness about something else that has meant a lot to me for a long time. but now I see there is no room for that right now.”



 

 

Also, standing by his earlier tweets, Tyler also tweeted, “im truly sorry if it hurt anyone. here is a link with a lot of great info that i stand by” where he shared a link of website if anybody wanted to contribute to the Black Lives Matter movement.



 

His fans started pouring in support after Tyler apologized on the micro-blogging site, where his followers said people attacked the singer for a stupid reason. Expressing his opinion on the controversy, one user stated, “Don’t apologize for advocating for what you believe in. Especially when it’s something you’ve been fighting for a long time. It’s Suicide Awareness Month! This is when we’re supposed to all be showing support for people dealing with mental health issues.”



 

One Twitter user posted: "I believe you. Cancel culture is ruining the lives of people that help me get through things. This community is just working to knock creators off the internet one by one, and sometimes for stupid reasons too. They all have fragile egos and believe the first thing they hear."

 



 

Supporting the American singer-songwriter, one Twitterati posted, “Tyler, there is always room for mental health. I apologize for the ignorant people that harassed you for speaking out about something you’re passionate about.”



 

One Twitter user got worried about the artist’s mental health and asked if he is doing fine. “sir. i’m worried about you, i am. you’ve saved me before. to see you’re clearly not in an okay headspace hurts, your struggles are valid, and i hope you’re okay. but please take accountability to the fact you hurt people today and that you’ll try to be better. that’s all we ask.”



 

Another fan supported Tyler Joseph and quoted, “he IS taking complete accountability by apologising for a joke that wasn't directly offensive and clearly wasn't supposed to be, and wasn't supposed to upset anybody, anyway. what more do you want of him now that he's spoken out about the topics at hand and apologised?”



 

If Tyler’s Twitter account is to be observed, he has mainly posted about the pride month, his charity work, random funny tweets along with a few tweets on his daughter. After people mistook his tweets, #TylerJosephIsOverParty had also started trending for a while.
