‘High School Musical’ Star Ashley Tisdale States She Has Been Struggling With Social Media On ‘Black Lives Matter’ Movement

Actress and singer Ashley Tisdale uploaded a photo that “Be a voice, not an echo” is written on, and expressed her thoughts about the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement on social media, through Instagram, on June 11.

High School Musical‘ star used the following statements to caption the mentioned photo:

I’ve been struggling with social media on the importance of #blacklivesmatter. I do believe that social media has DEFINITELY helped but I fear that this movement can be treated like a trend as we seek to be allies in this fight.”

The teen idol, Tisdale continued by saying that supporting the movement through social media is not enough for a real change:

“The truth is we need to sustain this movement In order to make changes to a system that has gone on for CENTURIES. We need to recognize that this isn’t going change tomorrow, next week, or even a month from now. We need to be allies EVERY DAY until it DOES change and not just allies on social media, it’s too easy to just think we are making a difference with just a post or a insta story. We need to start living and breathing this subject to make real change.”

Asley Tisdale concluded her words by giving advice to her followers:

“…I encourage you to keep speaking up on your platform if that’s how you feel makes you the best ally and I also encourage all of my followers to keep educating yourself, I shouldn’t have to make it easy for you. YOU should be wanting to listen and learn just as much as I want to. Have those uncomfortable conversations in real life.”

Below you can find the mentioned Instagram post.
