'Real Housewives Of Atlanta': Porsha Williams Arrested At Breonna Taylor Protest
The world is in the midst of racial reform as Black Lives Matter protests grip the world. Among the many names in recent months of Black lives lost is Breonna Taylor, an EMT who was peacefully asleep in her home when she was fatally shot by police who entered the wrong house on a home invasion call. Many, including RHOA alum Porsha Williams, are calling for justice.
The year 2020 has brought on some of the most intense changes the world has seen in a very long time, and among dealing with wildfires and a global pandemic, massive social reform makes the list.
As the world rallies for changes, the name Breonna Taylor is among those on the list of the calls for justice. The 26-year-old EMT was peacefully asleep in her Louisville home when she was fatally shot by police officers who entered the wrong house on a botched "no-knock" search warrant.
Porsha Williams is calling for justice
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star attended a Louisville protest calling for justice of the late hero Taylor, however, things took a turn for the worst when Porsha Williams got arrested at the protest.
Her fiancé, Dennis McKinley, posted a video to Instagram, in which Williams can be seen being escorted in handcuffs by a police officer.
More than 80 others were arrested as well.
Williams' sister Lauren also posted the encounter on Instagram, saying that her sister has "always been fearless."
She continued the caption, "She takes the case of #breonnataylorpersonally and she’s sacrificing work, time with her loved ones, and her comfort to make sure the offenders are held accountable for their actions. This is her passion, this is her purpose. God please protect them."
Later on Tuesday, Williams herself posted a photo with Breonna Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer.
