On August 21, 2018, days after the release of To All the Boys I've Loved Before, a collection of insensitive and racist tweets by Broussard resurfaced, including on the subject of the Black Lives Matter movement. For instance, after the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, Broussard tweeted: "Dogs can sense earthquakes. Too bad Japan ate them all." In addition, he was also found to have liked tweets promoting Sandy Hook conspiracy theories and anti-Muslim tweets.
