Watch: Kandi Burruss Broke Down As She Recounted Explaining Police Brutality to Her 4-Year-Old Son

Published: Thursday 11th Jun 2020 by Rashad

‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Kandi Burruss is not shying away from keeping it real with her 4-year-old son Ace on matters related to race and police brutality.

As the nation continues to confront uncomfortable conversations around the topic in the wake of the unjust deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and many other African Americans who have died at the hands of police, Burruss took to ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen’ Wednesday (June 10) to share how important it is for parents to ensure their children are aware of what’s happening.

Hear her emotional statements inside:

Dishing with host Andy Cohen, Kandi stated:

“My son, Ace, who’s four, he was a policeman on career day. So when my husband, Todd [Tucker], was trying to explain to him what was going on and why everybody was so upset and what was happening with the police, Ace was confused,” Burruss noted, getting visibly emotional. “He was like, ‘So, the police are the bad guys?'” 

Unable to hold back the tears, the singer-songwriter-turned-reality star thanked Cohen for his empathy but noted he could never fully understand the strife given that he will never have to have discourse of this nature with his children.
“Now isn’t that crazy to have to explain that to a four year old? For you to be black and have to worry about the police being the bad guys,” she said through tears. “That’s an emotional thing for me. And Andy, I know you care about us, but you don’t have to think about that. You know what I’m saying? That’s something that we have to think about for our sons.”


Elsewhere in the interview, Burruss discussed making history as the first African American woman to win ‘Masked Singer.’ See that below.
