Keke Palmer engaged with National Guard soldiers on Tuesday in Los Angeles, speaking out against President Donald Trump's rhetoric and requesting the armed officers march with the protesters.
The actress led a passionate exchange between protesters and National Guard soldiers during one of the many protests on Tuesday afternoon.
In a clip that has now gone viral — posted by NBC News correspondent Gadi Schwartz on Tuesday afternoon — Palmer can first be heard addressing a May 29 tweet posted by President Donald Trump in which he wrote “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
“You have a president talking about the Second Amendment as a use for people to come out here and use firearms against the people protesting. This is the message that we’re seeing," she says. "You have to pay attention to what’s going on. We have a president that’s trying to incite a race war, and when the borders are closed. We can’t leave. You have people in here that need your help. This is when you and y’all can stand together with the community, with society, to stop the governmental oppression. Period. We need you.”
At that point, one of the solders said, “I agree with you.” She then requested, “March with us. March beside us. Get your people. March beside us. Let the revolution be televised. March beside us and show us that you’re here for us. Let’s just do it. We start marching and you march with us.”
The crowd, many of whom were surrounding the scene with phones up to record the action, started cheering, clapping and chanting, “March with us!”Another soldier then explained that they were not allowed to leave their post due to orders to control that section, so he offered to march down the block through the next intersection. “It will send a huge message,” Palmer replied. When he said he had to stay to protect the businesses as well, she said, “I’m at a loss.”
Another woman then asked the same solder to take a knee, which he did.Watch the full clip below. Read more: Hollywood Reporter »
Sorry kiddo. Get rid of the Yankees in Central America happened in 1999. sure are a lot of black d-ist celebs getting their attention the past week. exploiting the moment. I'm not sure if Ms. Palmer's aware, but the military doesn't take orders from actresses. Another uneducated celeb that thinks just because rules doesn't apply to her that it doesn't apply to anyone else.
Please subscribe My daughter Hala decided to establish YouTube channel, watch her episodes , and subscribe to her channel, please coronavirus pandemic kills 749 people in the US in the past 24 hours, bringing the total in the US to 109,791...COVID19 I don't think so. It sounds good in theory, but disobeying MILITARY ORDERS has consequences. Is she willing to make up the lost wages when the people that do it get reduced in rank?
She was annoying af tbh This was like 5 days ago 😔 Canada's Prime Minister JustinTrudeau might be the first world leader to kneel at an anti-black racism protest I'm not impressed. Amazing how these celebrities have their camera ready to get that shot. Nothing authentic about it. Can they join a movement without making it about them?
KeKe is incredibly engaging and people speak with her with such ease. Someone should give this young woman her own talk show. KeKe could be the next Oprah, maybe even bigger. She could have stayed home but she went out and started talking. Love her courage! maybe she should go try speak to the violent looters and thugs robbing and attacking random people on the streets. See how her kumbaya speech goes down with them.
Who gives a shit The arm forces should match with protesters so that anarchy will become the order of the day well said...where was this energy before now? She wants the armed officers to help out with burning African American communities to the ground like everyone else Not besides, *with us* Let the looters take over your state
Go Keke 👍 If you associate anti Trump with BLM you will gain little support amongst the people you are trying to get your message across to the very most. if you want us to respect your opinion respect ours as well. The fact that the President even sent our soldiers out to hurt our own is disguisting She's just one more rich black broad that really wants to be white but never will!
Lovely PR,I guess CAA is Involved,the Pedophile Machine.Please ! Never heard of her. 👀 Your story doesn’t end with what you lost: a dream that didn’t work out, a relationship that didn’t make it, a business that went down. Favor is coming like you’ve never seen. Its about to do something unusual, something uncommon that catapults you to a new level.
