Celebrities React to the Shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota
Following the fatal shootings this week by police officers of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and of Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, celebrities including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Amy Schumer, Missy Elliott, and Jesse Williams took to social media to voice their love and support for the victims and their families, as well as their frustration over police brutality and racial injustice.
"Love to Louisiana," tweeted Schumer, who has been outspoken on the issue of gun violence ever since a gunman killed two and injured nine during a showing of her 2015 movie Trainwreck at a movie theater in Lafayette, La.
"In the interest of time, would ye noble patriots please provide a list of infractions punishable by spontaneous public execution? Thanks!" tweeted Jesse Williams.
