Kerry Washington welcomed a baby boy earlier this month and since becoming a mother for the second time, the star has been very quiet on social media. But on Saturday, the Scandal star took to Twitter to get a few things off her “chest.”
First, the beauty thanked fans for all their “congratulatory tweets” following the birth of she and husband, Nnamdi Asomugha’s, bundle of joy.
Washington then went on to share her thoughts on the death of Deborah Danner, the 66-year-old schizophrenic Black woman who was shot and killed by a sergeant last week after brandishing a pair of scissors and then a baseball bat inside her Bronx apartment.
“Also the loss of #DeborahDanner has rattled my core. Not only becuz of painful truth that we must continue to affirm that #BlackLivesMatter,” Kerry wrote. “But also becuz #DeborahDanner was killed in the community where I was raised. Community filled w/people I know & love. So when I #sayhername.”
Kerry continued, “My heart aches. For lives lost and for the lives we must protect. For the humanity we must work to illuminate and preserve and affirm. #BLM.”
The mother of two ended her rant after encouraging fans to go see Moonlight, a movie which she calls an “artful food for your soul. At a time when so many of us need to be lovingly nourished.”
Remy Ma And Chris Brown Team Up To Celebrate Black Women
An ode to the pretty brown girls … yasssss!
Remy Ma is showing love to the girls that need it most with her new single “Melanin Magic (Pretty Brown)” featuring Chris Brown.

What’s also special about the track is the fact that Remy invited fans via her socials to choose the cover art for “Melanin Magic,” as she wanted to broaden the conversation about ‘inner and outer beauty while celebrating both.’ Here’s the winner…
