Celebrities React to Grand Jury’s Decision in Breonna Taylor Case [Cardi B, Oprah, Alicia Keys, & More]

Published: Wednesday 23rd Sep 2020 by Rashad

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.

You deserved so much more #BreonnaTaylor ! I am praying for your mother Tamika and the rest of your family today. As hard as this verdict is for us to digest, I can’t imagine how she must feel. Shame on America’s racist justice system. Will I be next?? This has to change ! #NoJusticeNoPeace 💔🙏🏾

George Clooney:

“The justice system I was raised to believe in holds people responsible for their actions,” Clooney, a Kentucky native, said in a statement to Deadline. “Her name was Breonna Taylor and she was shot to death in her bed by 3 white police officers, who will not be charged with any crime for her death. I know the community. I know the commonwealth. And I was taught in the schools and churches of Kentucky what is right and what is wrong. I’m ashamed of this decision.”

    The family settled out of court for $12 million why doesn’t anyone understand that this was apart of the agreement made between the family and the system.

      The agreement was most likely so the family wouldn’t sue the city. The agreement did not include no charges against the officers. If anything, the settlement (one of the largest in history for a situation like this) made the case even stronger. A settlement that large illustrates that they know they significantly screwed up. So, please don’t say something that ignorant again. Pick up a book, and make sure you’re registered to vote.

      This is disgusting. Drop the money and make sure they stay in prison as they should. These are murderers on the loose who will kill again.
      This is really the worst country ever. How can you have such poor management in a country that is (supposedly) at peace and that wealthy ?

      The whole system is screwed up and rotten. And let’s not even talk about people voting for candidates like Bush (elected twice, bravo !) and Trump.

      Because there is a difference between civil and criminal offenses. The monetary civil portion shouldn’t have impacted the criminal handling…. yet.. here we are. I knew this would be happening though… I lost all hope after Philando Castille literally did what he was told to do and STILL got shot in front of his wife and child…
