Gabrielle Union is fed up with the countless acts of senseless violence happening among us, so she is speaking out for Tamir Rice and victims everywhere.
“Thinking about all the kids who are “big for their age” & all of the evil excuses that will be used to defend their murders,” Gabrielle tweeted. When asked what she would do if she was the responded officer, Gabrielle answered, “I wouldn’t have shot a child with a toy gun in an open carry state within 2 seconds and not render aid… not that!”
Gabrielle Union takes the names of Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland and Tamir Rice to heart, due to the fact that she was a victim of violence at the age of 19. You may recall she was raped by a former employee while working a closing shift at Payless Shoe Store. Gabrielle feels that we see innocent victims treated wrongfully and that the trend of victim blaming is at its peak.
As a victim/survivor of violence, I can tell u that it can easily happen to anyone,” Gabrielle tweeted. “I was at work when I was raped. People still asked me what I had on. If you look in the mirror, are u a “perfect victim”? I bet they could find something in your life to make you a villain and to explain away ur pain.”
