by | July 1, 2020

Lizzo has asked her 8.9 million TikTok followers to continue the fight for justice for Breonna Taylor — a black woman killed in her home by white police officers.

In a video titled, “What I Eat in a Day: Tale of a Fat Vegan,” Lizzo revealed what her typical daily diet looks like, before sharing details of how to support Taylor’s cause.

“Disclaimer: this is not every day but this is a pretty average one,” she said before showing fans what she usually eats for each meal — including green smoothies, kale salads, and mushroom balls.

“We Still Need Justice”

At the end of her video, the singer added a caption that read, “We still need justice for Breonna Taylor. Text ENOUGH to 55156 to demand that the officers that murdered her are arrested and charged.”

Emergency medical technician Breonna Taylor was shot and killed at her home by police officers on March 13 this year.

The 26-year-old woman was sleeping next to her boyfriend Kenneth Walker when the police entered her home without warning to look for drugs. The officers opened fire on the couple, with at least eight bullets striking Taylor, causing her death.

One of the officers involved in the incident has been fired, with two others being placed on administrative reassignment.

“She Didn’t Deserve This”

“Breonna had her head on straight, and she was a very decent person,” said her mom, Tamika Palmer.

“She didn’t deserve this. She wasn’t that type of person.”
