Well-known American actor Tia Mowry, best known for her role as ‘Tia Landry‘ in ‘Sister, Sister‘ took to Instagram just after the news regarding that US Capitol in Washington had been occupated by supporters of Donald Trump.
As widely known, on January 6, supporters of Trump stormed the US Capitol to block Biden’s win. Hundreds of pro-Trump protesters invaded the Capitol and “an adult female two adult males suffered from separate medical emergencies.”
To react to the news, Mowry posted an image with “If you have ever been confused about the term ‘privilege’ being used with respect to conversations about racial injustice please refer to TODAY” and captioned it by saying that the things supporters of Trump did in the Capitol was totally embarrassing. In her own words:
“My God. I am still processing. EVERYTHING. What a disappointment. This is truly embarrassing.”
Then the 42-year-old added that she asked herself whether she should allow her son to watch what unfolded, and she answered yes.
“I don’t want him to be naive to what’s happening around him. He had so many questions. So many questions. My God.”
Not only Mowry but also a great number of notable names in the cinema industry took to social media to express that they are very ashamed of the things going on in Washington, as a citizen of the United States of America.
As for Mowry’s followers jumped into the comment section to criticize white privilege: Numerous Instagram users claimed that in case people of color had invaded the US Capitol, there would have been so many deaths and arrests.
