Queen Latifah, Cardi B, Beyoncé, Lizzo and More Honor Breonna Taylor’s Memory With Birthday Posts

Queen Latifah paid homage to Breonna Taylor on Sunday (July 5), just days after what would have been the Louisville, Kentucky, native’s 27th birthday.

The rapper/actress joined a chorus of other stars who celebrated Taylor, an EMT who was killed more than two months ago when three plain-clothes officers serving a no-knock warrant in an attempted drug raid on the wrong apartment shot her eight times.

Latifah posted a tribute video in which her 18-year-old cousin, Breyana, sang a mournful “Happy Birthday” to Taylor in a message that also amplified the urgent call for the charging of the officers in the case. “It has been a month since then and Breonna’s killers have not been charged. Call the KY AG Daniel Cameron at 502-696-5300 and demand he charge the officers. #JusticeForBreonna,” Latifah wrote, amplifying a message that was also shared by Beyoncé, Lizzo, Janet Jackson, Meek Mill and others.

Bey posted a drawing of Taylor with information on how to seek justice for her killing, while Lizzo provided instructions on what to say when you call Cameron’s office and the message, “She should be here. Instead she was murdered by police in what they’re calling a “clerical error”. They barged into her home without knocking and shot her in her sleep. She worked for us during the covid pandemic, she was an innocent civilian. SAY HER NAME. DEMAND JUSTICE ON HER BIRTHDAY. NO ARRESTS HAVE BEEN MADE.”

✊ #Repost @ontheqtrain ・・・ SAY HER NAME In honor of Breonna Taylor’s 27th birthday today, we are calling for justice to be served. ⁣ ⁣ Breonna was an essential worker murdered at the height of a pandemic in her HOME. She was killed by police with a barrage of bullets that struck her atleast 8 times. ⁣ ⁣ They were executing a no-knock warrant for another suspect that was already in their custody. The FBI finally opened an investigation into her shooting today, but no officers have been arrested, charged, or even disciplined yet.⁣ ⁣ When we say #blacklivesmatter, that must include Black women & Black LGBTQ+ lives, too. Use your voice for them just like you did for #GeorgeFloyd. ⁣ ⁣ Donate, protest, petition and DEMAND #JusticeforBreonnaTaylor. ⁣ ⁣ #allblacklivesmatter #breonnataylor #sayhername #birthdayforbreonna⁣ ⁣ ⁣ __________⁣ ⁣ INFLUENCERS IN SLIDE 1: ⁣ @essiegolden @curvenvy @glamazondiaries @amarachiukachu @tyalexander @colormecourtney @chardlinechanel @addieoh @stylishcurves @ontheqtrain @kurvykatie @lexiwiththecurls @iambeauticurve @simplygailg @styleandpoise @dressupwithjess⁣ ⁣ INFLUENCERS IN SLIDE 2:⁣ @gabifresh @kellyaugustineb @chanteburkett @alana_reina @simplycurvee @opalbyopal @audreypatriciaw @stylenbeautydoc @monroesteele @blairimani @enigivensunday

Today you would be 27 years old. Today you would be celebrating your beautiful life. Instead today we are in still in deep mourning because your life was taken from you prematurely at the hands of the Louisville Metro Police Department & 3 of its incompetent officers who entered your home with malicious intent serving a “no knock warrant” when the people the police were looking for were already in custody. Officers opened fire & shot you 8 times, killing you in cold blood because your car was suspected to be parked outside of a home they were investigating. A beautiful soul, taken from her family & friends due to negligent police work & a killer squad of officers in Louisville who simply had the wrong house. This is a picture of me & you to remind people of just how big your smile was & though our interaction was brief, I can attest to the amazing energy you exuded & how genuinely happy you were to meet me this night. “Jayceon, you said to get my attention”…. as that always does”. I turned around & you asked for a picture & after you said “Thank you so much, we have the same last name & tell little Cali I said hi”. I appreciate you & I am the one thankful for the picture with such a beautiful soul. Your life was taken but your name will never be forgotten…… “BREONNA TAYLOR” #SayHerName #BlackLivesMatter #HappyBirthdayBeautiful
