Hollywood Celebrities: ‘Arrest the Cops Who Killed Breonna Taylor’


Hollywood celebrities are commemorating 150 days since the death of Breonna Taylor in March by demanding the arrest of the police officers involved in her shooting death.

Stars including Viola Davis, Meagan Good, Amy Schumer, Jessica Alba, and Sarah Silverman used their social media accounts to pressure prosecutors into charging the three Kentucky cops. The celebrities posted photos of themselves wearing t-shirts with the logo: “Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.”

The t-shirts were made in collaboration with the Breonna Taylor Foundation, a non-profit set up by Taylor’s mother.

Breonna Taylor, 26, was fatally shot in her bed by officers of the Louisville Metro Police during the execution of a “no-knock” warrant in March. Her death has become a rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement and other anti-police groups, with activists demanding that charges be brought against the officers.

Oscar-winner Viola Davis tweeted: “Too often Black women who die from police violence are forgotten. Stay loud, demand justice—and SAY HER NAME.”  Fellow Oscar-winner Regina King posted her own photos to Instagram.

Comedian-actress Amy Schumer tweeted our her seemingly make-up free photo, with nearly identical copy.

Actress Olivia Wilde added a personal note to her Instagram post on Taylor, saying she explained her t-shirt to her three-year-old daughter.

Today I explained this t shirt to my 3 yr old daughter. I didn’t sugarcoat the tragedy of it. She should know what kind of world she is here to reimagine. Her innocent horror and confusion should be all of ours. It’s been 150 days since Breonna Taylor was murdered in her sleep by Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove—and her killers have not been charged. Too often Black women who die from police violence are forgotten. Let’s stay loud, keep demanding justice for Breonna and her family, and SAY HER NAME. Proud to stand with WNBA players in joining this campaign, created by @phenomenal in partnership with the Breonna Taylor Foundation, to which all profits from tees will be donated.
