A lot of people thought it was in poor taste for Vice President Kamala Harris to tweet about enjoying the three-day weekend without mentioning exactly why it was a three-day weekend. Across the nation Monday, Americans are remembering the sacrifices of those who gave their lives for the country, but Sunday was all about remembering the death of George Floyd. A commemorative concert was held in Houston, featuring Stacey Abrams and a lot of people we don’t recognize, with the exception of Women’s March co-founder Tamika Mallory.

Hey, it’s not right to laugh — although we did smirk a little when we saw the George Floyd Ensemble listed among the performers.
Who are these performers?

I don’t know any of them. Is anyone even gonna show up to this
— James (@therealjamess95) May 31, 2021
Other than Stacey Abrams, I have no idea who any of these people are. Should I have heard of them?

What a line up. They're not even well known in their own homes.

Is this a real poster or a mocking gibing?
— Svetlana (@Svetlana1svetla) May 31, 2021
We looked it up — it was a real thing.

A “commemorative concert” cloaked in lies and Marxist propaganda to brainwash a very specific group of people.

Very telling who the left chooses as their heroes 🤔

I have just one question, before the tragedy happened, what was his profession?🤔
— Harpreet (@IchbinDesi) May 31, 2021
How ridiculous is this???
— Jeanette Lingafelt (@Jsport1200) May 31, 2021
Not a hero 🤷♀️

George Floyd's death was horrific and justice has seemingly been sought, I just feel this deifying of him just makes me think democrats are lost without religion . He's essentially the new Jesus for the Democratic Party, Nancy even saying he sacrificed himself. It's a bit dark.

His death was horrific. It seems in bad taste they’d hold this Memorial Day weekend though.
A society without pride in its roots will follow any false prophet

Who went? How was it? 🤔

We don’t think any of the cable news networks chose to carry it; have they no respect?
