The families of victims of police brutality, community...

On Friday, September 16th, music student and father of four Terence Crutcher was shot and killed by Officer Betty Shelby of the Tulsa Police Department despite being unarmed, fully cooperative with police and having committed no crimes.

Monday, the video of his unlawful death was released and thousands have taken to social media to voice their anger, sadness, and disgust. Actors, singers, and athletes are using their large platforms to express their own thoughts on the latest police killing of an unarmed Black man.

Jussie Smollett reminded us of the importance of #BlackLivesMatter, while Kerry Washington let her fans know that her heart breaks with Crutcher’s family.

More still compared the outrage following Colin Kaepernick‘s movement to protest the National Anthem to the silence amongst those same people since the news of Crutcher’s death. Check out a full gallery of reactions, below:
