Jennifer Lawrence Comments On Racial Injustice And Demands Justice For Breonna Taylor

One of the highest-paid actresses in the world, Jennifer Lawrence took Twitter on June 18 and commented on racial injustice and demanded justice for Breonna Taylor, who was killed inside her home by a police officer.

Jennifer Lawrence, who appeared in Time’s 100 most influential people in the world list, posted two tweets in a row to speak over the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.

Jennifer Shrader Lawrence firstly posted a video from ‘RepresentUs,’ that is a nonprofit organization advocating the American Anti-Corruption Act., and wrote to introduce it:

“Nearly 1 in 4 Black men in America will be locked up at some point in their life. In this short video, @omarepps & @desmondmeade explain how corruption has broken our criminal justice system—& what we can do to fix it. #UnbreakingAmerica #JusticeForSale http://represent.us/justicenow

Then ‘Hunger Games’ film series star posted a statement as a photo and demanded justice for Breonna Taylor with these words:

“For three months since her murder, Breonna Taylor’s family, the people of Louisville, Americans across the country, and many around the world have called out for justice. And yet, those calls have gone unanswered. No arrests have been made, the officers responsible for her death remain employed by the LMPD, and disturbingly, the LMPD’s own investigation report was woefully inaccurate.”

As an outspoken feminist and founder of the ‘Jennifer Lawrence Foundation’, 29-year-old actress continued:

As a Louisvillian, as a human being, I cannot be silent. I join all those who are speaking out against this grave injustice, calling upon Attorney General Daniel Cameron to take immediate action to hold those responsible for her death accountable. (…) We must not allow the erasure of Black women to continue in America.”

The member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Lawrence concluded her words with a forceful message:

“As many activists and leaders have been imploring for years: #SayHerName.”

Below you can find the second-mentioned tweet.
