Artists react to the killing of an unarmed black man at the hands of a Tulsa police officer.
If you've been on social media today, you've likely heard about another senseless killing of a black man, Terence Crutcher, by a police officer.
The Oklahoma resident's SUV reportedly broke down on September 16th, exactly a month after Crutcher's 40th birthday, when the police responded to a 911 call about the car. As we reported on earlier today, police dash cam footage shows Crutcher walking back to his SUV with his hands above his head, when one office tased him and another office shoots him. The conversation between the two officers in the dash cam footage is also incredulous-- "Time for a Taser, I think," an officer can be heard saying, while another says, "That looks like a bad dude, too."
We're sending our condolences to Crutcher's family at this extremely difficult time. Celebrities have been reacting to the news of Crutcher's death across the web today. Take a look at some of the reactions below.
We'll update you as the police investigation into Crutcher's murder continues. R.I.P.
