Black Lives Matter Movement and Mocking Racism
According to In Touch Weekly, Malin went to Cameo, a video platform in which fans pay money to hear from celebrities and reality TV stars. In one video, he covers his mouth and says,
“Go TikTok, put on your mask, be nice to black people. You know what I mean. Peace.”
