As the heartbreaking news about the killing of Alton Sterling by police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, continues to get noticed, celebrities have been reacting on social media.
“Great guy, big personality. CDs were his way to make income to support his family. Not a guy who would use violence at all. People from the city who have a voice should speak up. I’m sure Mayor Kip Holden and those guys are taking good care of things, but it’s important for people who come from there to show love,” said Davis.
Davis even added that Alton “wouldn’t hurt a fly.”
He also took to Instagram to post the video of the shooting and comment on how sad the situation is.
