Drill artist Digga D says the police and probation services have forbidden him from speaking out about Black Lives Matter as it is “promoting violence”.
The ‘Double Tap Diaries’ rapper is currently on probation, and recently posted a photo of him holding a Black Lives Matter placard.
“Police and probation had a problem with me taking a picture holding a sign saying black lives matter,” he wrote.
“They wanted to recall me… But instead they made my license conditions worse than they already are.”
Stefflon Don, whose brother is the rapper Dutchavelli, spoke out about him being wanted by the police for posting about attending the protest, saying he had also been threatened with prison recall.
Lavida Loca has stated she has also been threatened and given a warning.
A petition has been launched to stop probation services trying to recall black men for protesting about Black Lives Matter – sign it here.

Twitter users have jumped to his defence, including Finesse Foreva who pointed out that Britain First leader Paul Golding was allowed to attend the protests despite being convicted of hate crimes.
