As the protests following the death of George Floyd continue across the US and the world, celebrities are using their platforms to speak out in their support. However, while some of them have taken to social media to express their pain, frustration, and support, others are taking it to the streets.

One of them was singer Ariana Grande who left quarantine to join a Black Lives Matter protest in Beverly Hills and West Hollywood on Saturday to advocate for an end to racial violence and police brutality. She carried a sign reading “Black lives matter.”

On her twitter, she asked the media not to ignore the peaceful protests happening in the city. “Hours and miles of peaceful protesting yesterday that got little to no coverage. all throughout Beverly Hills and West Hollywood,” she wrote, sharing along the photos of the protests.

“We chanted, people beeped and cheered along. We were passionate, we were loud, we were loving. Cover this too please.”

Grande also implored her followers to vote, sign petitions, and donate to bail funds.

“Please keep signing these petitions, making donations, having conversations w family and friends about it, reading and sharing links and resources… gentle reminder that this doesn’t end today or tomorrow or after you post about it once,” she wrote.

Similarly, signer-songwriter Halsey shared her experience during the protests in LA.

“I dont know how to articulate the horrors of today. NG + officers firing rounds into kneeling crowds. We dont have enough medics on the ground on our side. I was treating injuries I am not qualified to. So much blood spilled. If you have med training pls go + standby outskirts.
