You know things are getting bad in America when White people start speaking out against their own.
In the aftermath of the horrific neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, many White celebs have come forward to condemn White supremacists. Even non-American citizens like Lorde, 20, can see that something is horribly wrong with the state of this nation.
The singer took to Twitter to vent her frustrations about the deadly White nationalists gathering and how “all White people” are to blame for things getting so out of hand:
The Melodrama singer isn’t the only White celeb to speak out following the hate-filled gathering, that left 32-year Heather Heyer dead as she fought for civil rights. Jimmy Fallon and Lady Gaga also used their platforms to bring awareness.
Remember, White silence equals White consent.
