Keke Palmer has joined the fight against brutality in Ferguson.
The host took to the streets to show her support and learned some hard lessons about what’s going on in the town rocked by the shooting death of Michael Brown.
She took to social media to share her experiences from the scene.
“God bless this woman right here! I met her out here in Ferguson tonight, & she was telling me about her violent run in with the police not too long ago. She was in an accident & called the police, & allegedly THIS is what SHE was put through. She was out here PEACEFULLY protesting, and after they threw tear gas at us, my mom was shot in the neck with pellets, they shot at us with REAL guns(a young man actually got hit), she came back & picked my mom, my friend & I up & took us home. God bless you sister & thank you! When you’re peaceful you play as a mirror to people’s wrong actions, instead of a distraction,” she posted.
