Many are outraged over the latest police shooting of unarmed Black man Terence Crutcher. The 40-year-old Oklahoma resident was gunned down last Friday while standing with his arms up in the air after reporters were heard on camera saying “he looks like a bad dude”.
Since video footage of the police shooting were released, many are speaking out over yet another unarmed Black man being killed by those paid to protect and serve.
Black celebrities are also being more vocal about the constant injustice, including Steve Harvey, Karrueche Tran, T.I., and Trey Songz.
Take a look at a few of their responses below.
Karrueche continued her discussion on Instagram.

It’s nice to see more Black celebrities joining together to speak out against the constant injustices of Black people in America.
Now if only our politicians would begin speaking out against police shootings as well we could possibly make way for some much needed change.
