"It’s a quiet Saturday afternoon. So a few things I wanna get off my chest,” she wrote. “I saw all your very kind & thoughtful congratulatory tweets. So yeah, we thank you.”
The star went on to express words of compassion for the family of Deborah Danner, a resident of the Bronx, New York, who was shot and killed by a police sergeant in her apartment last Tuesday.
“Also the loss of #DeborahDanner has rattled my core,” Washington wrote. “Not only becuz of painful truth that we must continue to affirm that #BlackLivesMatter ... but also becuz #DeborahDanner was killed in the community where I was raised.”
"My heart aches. For lives lost and for the lives we must protect. For the humanity we must work to illuminate and preserve and affirm," she tweeted.
She also suggested followers see Moonlight, a new film that focuses on one African-American man’s coming of age.
“End of rant,” she signed off after her series of tweets.
