Not surprisingly, not everyone got behind his show of support. One fan responded to his Instagram post with “All Lives Matter.”

After seeing the “All Lives Matter” comment, Alonso did not hold back. He blasted the comment with a salient remark.

“Get out of here with that ignorance,” Alonso wrote. Of course everybody’s life matters but we’re focusing on the wide spread racism on our country right now. The question is, why does the black lives matter movement bothers you enough to have to say all lives matter?

It’s worth noting that many who did comment on Alonso’s Instagram post were extremely supportive. He’s been a rock in the New York community this year and has done plenty to show support for those who need it.
