When the disappointing and outrageous news broke today that all of the officers tried in the Freddie Gray murder case had been acquitted, most people were shocked, saddened and disheartened by another injustice of a black man being murdered with no one held accountable. However it wasn’t just regular citizens who were highly upset, as celebrities also voiced their displeasure, with actor/activist Jesse Williams leading the way.
Never one to shy away from controversial topics or bite his tongue, Jesse Williams took to his Twitter account today to air his warranted frustrations about the latest development in the Freddie Gray case. In a series of tweets, he also points out how the justice system continuously neglects to protect and serve those who need it most.
Check out Jesse’s tweets below:
Williams wasn’t the only celebrity to take to Twitter following the Freddie Gray acquittal, as DeRay McKesson, Solange Knowles and Russell Simmons also tweeted out their feelings to their followers as well.
It’s encouraging to see celebrities with such huge platforms unafraid to speak up regarding the injustices that are currently facing this country. Here’s hoping that even more celebrities use their voice to stand up for what’s right and what matters.
