Porsha Williams is standing up for what she believes in. The 39-year-old, along with other reality television stars including Love & Hip-Hop castmate Yandy Smith, were among the near 70 people arr*sted in Louisville, Kentucky, on Tuesday, August 25.
They were there to prot*st the March 2020 de*th of Breonna Taylor, who worked as an EMT in the area before she was fa*ally sh*t in her own home after three officers exe*uted a no-kn*ck wa*rant. The gathering took place reportedly after BreonnaCon, an event that spa*ned several days in hopes that it will finally get her justice.
Both Porsha and Yandy posted photos and videos from the prot*st where each of them do-nned yellow T-shirts with the words “Until Freedom” spl*shed across the middle. Yandy even shared a clip of her getting arr*sted while there with people chanting that they “loved her” as she was taken away.
“If we don’t get no justice,” she captioned the powerful footage. Police cla!med that the two women and many others who were taken into cus*ody were ar*ested for and char*ed with obst*ucting the roadway and di*orderly con*uct.
Porsha and Yandy have been in this situation before. Last month they were arr*sted during a r*lly outside the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron. They were among the many who were fru*trated with him for not fi*ing cha*ges in Breonna’s case. Other major celebrities who have been vocal about getting justice for her include Beyonce, LeBron James and Gabrielle Union.
