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 was killed in the community where I was raised. Community filled w/people I know & love. So when I .”

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
