While some stars shy away from illuminating their views on recent events in the US, Beyonce is addressing the issue head-on.
Following the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of police officers, Queen Bey urged fans to put pressure on authorities act.
Many shared her sentiment to protest peacefully, however a select few have resorted to violence (which is never the answer). One such instance was an incident in Dallas which saw Micah Johnson shoot 11 police officers, five of which have since died.
Responding to the latest events, the 34-year-old singer offered the following…
Rest in peace to the officers whose lives were senselessly taken yesterday in Dallas. I am praying for a full recovery of the seven others injured. No violence will create peace. Every human life is valuable. We must be the solution. Every human being has the right to gather in peaceful protest without suffering more unnecessary violence.
To effect change we must show love in the face of hate and peace in the face of violence.
Again, kudos to Bey for using her platform to propagate good.
