Nene Leakes is back-peddling on her “graceful” exit from the ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’

After rumors of her being fired reached fever-pitch, the reality star stepped forward to announce that she was departing the show – seemingly on her own volition.

At the time, she thanked all involved and appeared zen about closing her ‘Housewives’ chapter.

A move that surprised many given her social media digs and allusion to taking legal action in the weeks and months before.

However, the peace didn’t last long. Because, her latest words have many wondering whether she’s become unhinged.

And the international outcry remains sky-high this week, following news that none of the officers have been charged with murder or manslaughter in relation to her death.

One person who isn’t part of the furious mass is basketball legend Charles Barkley.

For, during TNT’s pregame coverage of the Western Conference Finals, he offered words that have rustled the feathers of many.

Wednesday afternoon (September 23), a grand jury indicted former Louisville police Detective Brett Hankison on 3 charges of ‘wanton endangerment’ for firing into a neighboring apartment the night Kentucky EMT and aspiring nurse Breonna Taylor was killed by cops (as we reported here).

The decision was handed down after six months of pressure from civil rights activists, celebrities, protestors, and more to arrest to the three officers responsible for killing.  The other two officers remain uncharged for the incident – meaning no one is being held directly responsible for Taylor’s death.

As protests erupt around the country in response, celebrities like Alicia Keys, John Legend, Oprah, Cardi B, George Clooney, Viola Davis, Kerry Washington, and more have taken to social media to express their outrage.

It’s been over 6 months since officers from the Louisville Police Department shot to death African American EMT worker and aspiring nurse Breonna Taylor in her Kentucky home after breaking down the door to her apartment in execution of a late-night, “no-knock” warrant.

Inciting a firestorm of controversy in the wake of the incident, the department did eventually terminate Brett Hankison and banned “no-knock” warrants but the state justice system at large failed to bring said policeman on charges (click here to read more).

That fate was changed when a grand jury presented its official report and their findings were announced Wednesday (September 23).

It’s been five months since Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African American woman from Louisville, KY, was shot and killed in her home by police officers who executed a no-knock search warrant that wasn’t issued for her in the first place.

To date, none of the policemen reportedly responsible (Metro Police Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, Officer Myles Cosgrove and former Officer Brett Hankison) have been arrested in connection to the incident.

Despite open letters and demands generated by the likes of celebrity figures Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Queen Latifah, Cardi B, Kerry Washington, and more (as we reported here), the powers-that-be have yet to issue any progress on putting any suspects behind bars.

To provide another nudge, six-time NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving is teaming with BET Her to shine a spotlight on the tragic event in a TV special.
