People stood the ground and trended All Countries Matter on Twitter as planned.
Is The Phrase Insensitive?
Yesh, the phrase is quite insensitive, the same as All Lives Matter is thick-skinned. However, it can be used to celebrate the beauty of a country by its people. The phrase is only hurtful if used ill-mannered fashion to take the glory away from the Americans who simply want to celebrate Independence Day.

The phrase is trending on Fourth Of July, an auspicious occasion to celebrate Independence from the rule of the British Empire.
The day means a lot to America and its citizens, as they have celebrated it for centuries and will continue to do so in the coming years. Fourth of July might not seem a big deal for other countries as it does not affect them.
Trending the All Countries Matter is a direct hit on America and a little bit insensitive too.
Slowly the #AllCountriesMatter paved its way to the hearts and minds of people living in other countries. The hashtag started trending worldwide after people used it to celebrate the beauty of every nation on the planet.
