Breonna Taylor is a 26-year-old African American woman who was fatally shot by Louisville Metro Police Department officers on March 13, 2020.
Her death did not get as much coverage as George Floyd’s but Solange has taken it upon herself to ask that the officers who shot her be prosecuted.
The singer wrote: “Ayo @louisvillemayor @GovAndyBeshear When the fuck are y’all going to arrest and charge Breonna Taylor’s murderers ?!?
“Why are Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankinson & Myles Cosgrove still roaming freely & still being payed while y’all try to protect the blood on y’all’s hands?”
Beyonce has also used her Instagram platform to condemm the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis officers.
Consequently, Matthew Knowles took to Instagram to express pride in his daughters for using their platforms to seek justice for the defenceless.
Sharing Solange’s tweet, the proud father wrote: “Solange is less diplomatic. I’m proud of both Solange & Beyoncé and the social courage they show. Fearless when it comes to speaking out about social injustice….fearless.”
