She wished Davis got the same love as the global superstar – which many found to be an invalid comparison. Seemingly seeing the criticism, Noname initially doubled down on her sentiments.
She wrote in a since-deleted tweet.
Noname expressed a wish that “Angela got the love Beyonce gets.”
“It’s cool seeing all the Angela Davis threads denouncing the need for idol worship and highlighting how celebrity is a capitalist project which Dr. Davis is fundamentally against, big facts. I still wish the world stopped and listened when she spoke the way it does for others.”
