PORSHA WILLIAMS, NICK CANNON, ARIANA GRANDE, MACHINE GUN KELLY & MORE CELEBRITIES JOIN PROTESTS AGAINST GEORGE FLOYD’S DEATH
Saturday, Jun 6, 2020

People showed up in droves this weekend to protest against the death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, who died at the hands of a police officer. Many celebrities, such as Dish Nation host Porsha Williams, Nick Cannon, Ariana Grande, Machine Gun Kelly, stood in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement in the fight for justice.

Porsha Williams, the granddaughter of prominent civil rights activist Hosea Williams, attended protests in Atlanta over the weekend. She shared a post of the peaceful protest to Instagram with caption “we stand together,” where she was holding a sign penned with the powerful message, “We Matter.”

 

Ariana Grande attended protests in LA which she described as peaceful, passionate and “loving.” She sent a call-to-action to the media to shift the narrative from destructive protests to the more peaceful ones.

 

R&B singer Tinashe mirrored Ariana’s sentiments, stressing that the protest she attended in Downtown LA was “non-violent,” despite the coverage many news outlets were showing.

 

However, Insecure actor Kendrick Sampson and How To Get Away With Murder star Matt McGorry had strikingly different experiences while protesting in L.A.

This was the moment the LAPD shot a round of some projectile (probably a rubber bullet) and hit me in the stomach (I’m ok). I will post more clips but it was a full day of the kkkops brutalizing protestors for no reason, ESPECIALLY BLACK PEOPLE. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to be Black and have to deal with these fucks beating and shooting at people for now reason (let alone the reasons we were there in the first place). Protests because of police brutality met with police brutality. How fitting. #ProsectuteKillerCops #DefundThePolice Follow these accounts. And if you are white, make sure you are uplifting, following, and amplifying Black people!!! @blmlosangeles @bldpwr @kendrick38

Halsey was also part of a protest that started out as a peaceful assembly but quickly turned violent when police fired rubber bullets into the crowd, hitting her twice.

Wearing a hoodie with some of George Floyd’s last words, “I can’t breathe,” Nick Cannon marched alongside Minneapolis protestors. In a black-and-white Instagram post captioned “Til Earth and Heaven Rings,” Cannon made it clear that the Black Lives Matter movement won’t stop until their voices are heard.

Rapper and activist J. Cole was spotted protesting in his hometown Fayetteville. The “No Role Modelz” rapper is known for showing up in times of racial unrest, as he was also present in Ferguson during the protests for Michael Brown who was also unarmed and killed by the police.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to George Floyd’s loved ones and all of the protestors who are putting themselves on the frontlines to fight against racism and police brutality.
