As a Minneapolis police building burns, social media users turn on Madonna for tweeting about her son

      Social media is blowing up tonight over a tweet from Madonna.

      It shows her son David dancing to a Michael Jackson song to pay tribute to George Floyd, an unarmed African American who was killed by police in Minnesota.

      Most of the commenters felt it was extremely insensitive, given what happened to Floyd.

      Prior to his death, the 46-year-old man was videotaped repeatedly telling police that he couldn't breathe as he was being pinned to the ground.

      Madonna's son is 14 years old.

      Tonight after no officers were charged in Floyd's death, protesters set a police building on fire in Minneapolis.

      President Donald Trump responded by tweeting that he had just spoken with Minnesota governor Tim Walz, and at "the Military is with him all the way".

      "Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts," Trump stated.

      That prompted a "public interest notice" from Twitter, which subsequently covered it up for violating the company's policy against advocating violence.
