Country singer and motivational speaker Coffey Anderson shared an instructional video offering safety tips on the "proper protocol for when you get pulled over" by the police.

Anderson posted the video on July 7 and it has been viewed more than 30 million times.

Anderson, the son of a white correctional officer in Texas, said in a press release he was inspired to make the video following the death Philando Castile who was fatally shot by a police officer.

According to the press release, Anderson's father taught him "at a young age these necessary skills to use when interacting with police officers to live in a world where prejudices exist."

"Guys, listen. This is about going home,” Anderson says in the video. "There is a big disconnect, because at the end of the day, it’s about stereotypes. The stereotypes that I’ve seen of policemen was the video from Rodney King. And a lot of stereotypes that [police] see of African-American men are not positive… I want to break the wall down between what we really don’t know about each other, to what we can learn from each other. So let’s make a simple protocol that can get you guys home safer – on the police side, and on our side."

Some people were quick to voice their support for Anderson but others criticized him.

"Man please! So people have to do all this to 'make' an officer 'feel'safe?" one critic wrote in response to the video.

Another voiced her support saying, "This is the smartest thing I have seen yet!"
