Ashton Kutcher releases a video Tuesday that explained why he believes those who say “all lives matter” need to be educated.

What’s going on:

  • Kutcher posted a video to Instagram that explained the “all lives matter” phrase can be counterproductive to protests and movements. He said those who say “all lives matter” should be educated.
  • Kutcher said he experienced the importance of the issue when he was putting his children to sleep. He said his daughter will often read a story first before going to bed. But his son asked why she went first.
  • Kutcher said: “Tonight, as we were reading her book, my son says, ‘Wait, why don’t I get to go first?’ And Mila said, ‘Because girls go first,’ and he said, ‘Yeah, but boys go first.’ And I looked at him, and I said, ‘No, girls go first.’”
  • “And I said, ‘You know why girls go first?’ ‘For you and me, girls go first, and the reason why is for some boys, girls don’t get a go at all.’”

  • “I think what folks that are writing ‘all lives matter’ need to understand is that for some people black lives don’t matter at all. So for us, black lives matter.”
  • “So while you may have the best intentions in saying ‘all lives matter’ remember, to some people black lives don’t matter at all.”
