Black lives matter — and so does spelling.
As mourners gathered Sunday to honor those killed in last week’s Charleston church massacre, they came across a vandalized Confederate monument near the Emanuel AME Church.
The vandals used graffiti to scribble several messages on the base of the statue.
They spray painted, “This is the problem #racist,” and a message for Gov. Nikki Haley and Charleston Mayor Joe Riley that read, “Riley and Haley -Why defend this evil -This the root of our evil.”
But it was their attempt at spraying a popular protest phrase that caught the attention of social media.
The vandals spray painted the words “Black Lives Mater” rather than “Black Lives Matter.” A mistake the Twitterverse was not going to let slide.
