LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY: ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Porsha Williams was arrested today, July 14, during a peaceful protest demonstration for Breonna Taylor, according to reports.
Her sister Lauren Williams spoke about Porsha’s arrest through an Instagram post sharing a video of her being taken away by cops with handcuffs on. Lauren wrote, “She has always been fearless. You mess with her people, you mess with her. She takes the case of #breonnataylor personally and she’s sacrificing work, time with her loved ones, and her comfort to make sure the offenders are held accountable for their actions. This is her passion, this is her purpose. God please protect them”.
Porsha and Lauren had previously attended a Say Her Name March in Atlanta, according to Bravo. The latest video showcasing Porsha's arrest has gone viral and fans are heaping her with praise for her display of bravery and coming forward to seek justice for Taylor and the rest of the Black community. Fans couldn’t stop raving about her transformation since the time they first saw her. Many have noted that the reality star has grown a lot as a person over the years. “Porsha went from asking if the Underground Railroad was a real train to actually walking the talk of getting justice. That's growth.” wrote one fan. Meanwhile, one Twitter user, crediting her role in the social justice movement wrote, "Porsha better be a Realhousewife of activism”.
Adding to the above tweets one user wrote, “Porsha is my biggest 180 from when they introduced her and now. She’s amazing.” The majority of them were seen thanking Porsha for being so actively involved in the Black Lives Matter movement. One fan wrote, “It’s in her blood line!! #Porsha #BreonnaTaylor still needs Justice! @DishNation” Another added, “Porsha has been going hard af in these streets while peacefully protesting. She keeps getting arrested and it’s not slowing her down. I appreciate her.”
A few Twitter users have expressed disappointment in the federal system for still not arresting the cops accused of murdering Taylor, while they are allowing arrests of peaceful protestors. “So they can arrest Porsha (and Yandy from #LHHNY) for protesting the cops that killed Breonna Taylor, but nothing the actual cops who killed Breonna Taylor? What a world! #RHOA,” tweeted one.
