Billie Eilish Urges Everyone to Speak Out on Rayshard Brooks’ Death

Billie Eilish is enraged over the death of Rayshard Brooks, the 27-year-old black man who was shot in the back and killed by white police at a Wendy’s drive-through in Atlanta.

“man F—. watching this video made me so f—ing angry. F— THIS SHIT. JUSTICE FOR RAYSHARD BROOKS. F— THIS SHIIIIIIIIT. #justiceforrayshard !!!! WHY ISNT EVERYONE TALKING ABOUT THIS??” Eilish wrote Sunday (June 14) on Instagram, where she posted footage of Brooks.

Minutes later, her brother Finneas also posted on social media: “Justice for Rayshard. This is so f—ed up man. And such a good example of EXACTLY what’s so f—ed up about the police in America. Asleep in his car in a parking lot. Shot to death. Don’t let yourself be numb to this. Don’t let the world stay this way.”

Protests broke out in the city over the weekend, following Brooks’ June 12 death.

T.I. took to the streets and said, “I don’t give a damn what your opinion is of the person. I don’t give a damn what he did. The man didn’t deserve to die like that. And any policeman out here who stands behind that shit your ass in trouble too.”

Killer Mike also expressed anger over the killing Saturday morning in an Instagram post: “#RayshardBrooks should be alive this morning. He should be waking up (hungover or drunk in the tank depending on whether he was apprehended) and not dead.”

Sunday afternoon, Atlanta police reported that one officer was terminated and one put on administrative duty after the fatal shooting of Brooks.
