Lady Gaga is sounding off in the wake of the not guilty verdict handed down in the controversial case of Kyle Rittenhouse.

Yesterday (November 20), the 18-year-old was acquitted on all charges (including murder) after fatally shooting two men and wounding another during three confrontations on August 25 2020.

Aged 17 at the time of the incident, Rittenhouse armed himself with a semi-automatic rifle – which he used in the killings

His attorneys argued a self-defense case and claimed that the teen headed into Kenosha to protect a car dealership from being vandalized and to lend medical assistance amidst race protests in the area; protests that were born out of civil unrest surrounding the shooting of an unarmed Black man by officials two days before.

Rittenhouse’s victims, who were caucasian, were notably part of those protesting racial injustice.

The case and its ultimate outcome have sparked a nationwide outcry.

Now, Gaga has lent her voice to the discourse.

The community congregated en masse this past weekend at the third annual Angela Yee Day, hosted in Brooklyn, New York.

Many artists took to the stage and local vendors were present as Brooklyn attended in person, after last year’s virtual event due to the global health crisis.

And giving back was the goal of the day.

Yee, who – along with her co-stars on ‘The Breakfast Club’ – serves as a cornerstone of the culture, cultivated a day that resonated in earnest.

For, the event celebrates her Caribbean and Brooklyn roots while supporting local businesses by way of providing information and access to financial literacy, education, and more. All while entertaining.

The outdoor extravaganza (which was presented by iHeartMedia) fused music, food, and live performances from the likes of Adrian Marcel, Noah Powa, HoodCelebrityy, Romain Virgo,  Erick the Architect, and Alison Hinds.

Head below for clips, as well our exclusive chat with Yee, as well as Marcel and Powa…
