Porsha Williams is lending her voice to bigger causes these days! She was arrested during a protest in Louisville calling for the arrest of LMPD officers.
On Tuesday, July 14, Porsha Williams attended a protest over the death of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star along with many others gathered on Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s lawn over the unjust death. Sarah Ladd, a journalist for the Courier-Journal, reported that 87 people had been arrested for “Intimidating a Participant in a Legal Process (Class D felony), Disorderly Conduct 2nd Degree (Class B misdemeanor), and Criminal Trespass 3rd Degree. (Violation),” according to a tweet.
The group is trying to bring more attention to Taylor’s death, who was fatally shot in her own home after police delivered a no-knock warrant at the wrong address.
Porsha’s fiancé, Dennis McKinley, was there in support of the cause and posted a video of Porsha being arrested. Porsha was released about five hours later and posted a photo on her Instagram with Tamika Palmer, Taylor’s mom.
According to her caption, Porsha said it was her pleasure to be a part of the protest. She also called for the police officers involved to be arrested. Porsha has been very involved in the current political happenings, attending protests and making her voice known.
Cameron, the attorney general in charge of the case, said that they plan to “fully investigate” the events surrounding Taylor’s death. Protestors said that they were there to hold Cameron and the Louisville Metro Police Department accountable for the injustices suffered.
In many places, protests continue as people stand up for causes they believe in as interest in the news seems to have slowed down. The large group of protestors arrested along with Porsha shows just that.
Though viewers have mixed opinions on Porsha as a whole, it is nice to see her standing up for something she believes in. Porsha’s family would be proud!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta will be back on Bravo later this year.
