Queen Latifah rindió homenaje a Breonna Taylor el domingo (5 de julio), pocos días después de lo que habría sido el cumpleaños número 27 de la nativa de Louisville, Kentucky.

La rapera/actriz se unió a un coro de otras estrellas que celebraron a Taylor, un EMT que fue asesinada hace más de dos meses cuando tres oficiales vestidos de civil que cumplían una orden de arresto en un intento de allanamiento de drogas en el apartamento equivocado le dispararon ocho veces.

Latifah publicó un video de homenaje en el que su prima Breyana, de 18 años, cantó un triste "Feliz cumpleaños" a Taylor en un mensaje que también amplificó el llamado urgente de acusar a los oficiales del caso. "Ha pasado un mes desde entonces y los asesinos de Breonna no han sido acusados. Llame al KY AG Daniel Cameron al 502-696-5300 y exija que cargue a los oficiales. #JusticeForBreonna", escribió Latifah, ampliando un mensaje que también fue compartido por Beyoncé, Lizzo, Janet Jackson, Meek Mill y otros.

Bey publicó un dibujo de Taylor con información sobre cómo buscar justicia por su asesinato.

🤎✊🏾 #Repost @ontheqtrain ・・・ SAY HER NAME 💔 In honor of Breonna Taylor’s 27th birthday today, we are calling for justice to be served. ⁣ ⁣ Breonna was an essential worker murdered at the height of a pandemic in her HOME. She was killed by police with a barrage of bullets that struck her atleast 8 times. ⁣ ⁣ They were executing a no-knock warrant for another suspect that was already in their custody. The FBI finally opened an investigation into her shooting today, but no officers have been arrested, charged, or even disciplined yet.⁣ ⁣ When we say #blacklivesmatter, that must include Black women & Black LGBTQ+ lives, too. Use your voice for them just like you did for #GeorgeFloyd. ⁣ ⁣ Donate, protest, petition and DEMAND #JusticeforBreonnaTaylor. ⁣ ⁣ #allblacklivesmatter #breonnataylor #sayhername #birthdayforbreonna⁣ ⁣ ⁣ __________⁣ ⁣ INFLUENCERS IN SLIDE 1: ⁣ @essiegolden @curvenvy @glamazondiaries @amarachiukachu @tyalexander @colormecourtney @chardlinechanel @addieoh @stylishcurves @ontheqtrain @kurvykatie @lexiwiththecurls @iambeauticurve @simplygailg @styleandpoise @dressupwithjess⁣ ⁣ INFLUENCERS IN SLIDE 2:⁣ @gabifresh @kellyaugustineb @chanteburkett @alana_reina @simplycurvee @opalbyopal @audreypatriciaw @stylenbeautydoc @monroesteele @blairimani @enigivensunday

Today you would be 27 years old. Today you would be celebrating your beautiful life. Instead today we are in still in deep mourning because your life was taken from you prematurely at the hands of the Louisville Metro Police Department & 3 of its incompetent officers who entered your home with malicious intent serving a “no knock warrant” when the people the police were looking for were already in custody. Officers opened fire & shot you 8 times, killing you in cold blood because your car was suspected to be parked outside of a home they were investigating. A beautiful soul, taken from her family & friends due to negligent police work & a killer squad of officers in Louisville who simply had the wrong house. This is a picture of me & you to remind people of just how big your smile was & though our interaction was brief, I can attest to the amazing energy you exuded & how genuinely happy you were to meet me this night. “Jayceon, you said to get my attention”.... as that always does”. I turned around & you asked for a picture & after you said “Thank you so much, we have the same last name & tell little Cali I said hi”. I appreciate you & I am the one thankful for the picture with such a beautiful soul. Your life was taken but your name will never be forgotten...... “BREONNA TAYLOR” #SayHerName #BlackLivesMatter #HappyBirthdayBeautiful 🖤
