090 Why “All Lives Matter” Needs to Stop Being a Thing
The Princesses talk about All Lives Matter and why it’s soooooo fucking problematic.
In This Episode
Nichole and Callie realized that they had been relatively silent on the topic of All Lives Matter on the show, which was never their intent. Very vocal about it on social media, they decided to bring their passion, anger and thoughts to VWPA for an episode about why All Lives Matter is so harmful and why everyone needs to stop saying it, including and especially vegans.
