Billie Eilish has shared an impassioned post on Instagram condemning the All Lives Matter movement, saying if she hears the phrase one more time "I'm gonna lose my f***ing mind".

The pop star shared the message following the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, who died after ex-police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for over eight minutes while he was under arrest.

Eilish captioned the post with the hashtags #justiceforgeorgefloyd and #blacklivesmatter, and wrote nearly her entire message in capital letters.

"I've been trying to take this week to figure out a way to address this delicately. I have an enormous platform and I try really hard to be respectful and take time to think through what I say and how I say it. But holy f***ing shit I'm just gonna start talking," her post begins.

She then directly addresses people who use the 'All Lives Matter' slogan as a way to invalidate the Black Lives Matter campaign, and who believe the latter is a way of undermining the life experiences of white people.

"If I hear one more white person say 'all lives matter' one more f***ing time I'm gonna lose my f***ing mind. Will you shut the f**k up? No one is saying your life doesn't matter. No one is saying your life is not hard.

"All you MFs do is find a way to make everything about yourself. This is not about you. Stop making everything about you. You are not in need. You are not in danger."

She then uses several metaphors to get her point across that black people are in need of the Black Lives Matter movement because they face injustices based on their race, whereas white people aren't in need of such a campaign.

"If your friend gets a cut on their arm are you gonna wait to give all your friends a bandaid first because all arms matter? No you're gonna help your friend because they are in pain, because they are in need, because they are bleeding.

"If someone's house is on fire and someone is stuck in the house, are you gonna make the fire department go to every other house on the block first because all houses matter? No! Because they don't f***ing need it."

Eilish ended her post by asking her followers: "Why are black people killed just for being black? Why are immigrants persecuted?"

"Why is it okay for white people to protest literally being asked to stay at home while carrying semi-automatic weapons? Why is it okay for black people to be called thugs for protesting the murder of innocent people? Do you know why? White. F***ing. Privilege.

"The slogan of #blacklivesmatter does not mean that other lives don't. It's calling attention to the fact that society clearly thinks black lives don't f***ing matter! And they f***ing do!"

Eilish joins many other celebrities who've spoken out against Floyd's death and are calling for action, including Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian West.
