Rihanna had a strong message for Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, who announced a Louisville grand jury’s decision to indict ex-officer Brett Hankison on Wednesday (Sept. 23). Hankison was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment in the first-degree for firing shots at Breonna Taylor’s and neighboring apartments on the night of her death.

On Thursday (Sept. 24), Rihanna joined much of the public in expressing her frustration and disappointment with the charges. While Hankison was indicted for potentially causing injury to Taylor’s neighbors or damaging the apartments, Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove — the latter whose shots actually killed Taylor — were not charged at all.

To voice her disproval, RiRi took to Twitter to single AG Cameron out with a specific message.

“I’m just gon’ let this sink in to your hollow skull @DanielCameronAG,” she tweeted alongside a poster that read: “A cop shot a Black woman and was only charged for the shots missed.”

Other celebrities — like LeBron James — shared similar reactions to the grand jury’s decision. On Twitter, the Los Angeles Lakers star said he was “devastated” by the lack of charges.

“I’ve been lost for words today!” he wrote. “I’m devastated, hurt, sad, mad! We want Justice for Breonna yet justice was met for her neighbors apartment walls and not her beautiful life. Was I surprised at the verdict. Absolutely not but damnit I was & still am hurt and heavy hearted! I send my love to Breonna mother, family and friends! I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I’m sorry!!”

Offline, protests continued for the second night on Thursday in cities such as Louisville, New York, Portland, Atlanta and more. As reported by REVOLT, Louisville police arrested over 100 protesters on Wednesday and another 24 on Thursday night — one of which was Kentucky State Rep. Attica Scott, who wrote the Breonna’s Law legislature.

On the creative side of things, Rihanna recently announced that her Savage x Fenty clothing line will soon offer menswear. See her tweet below.
