ATLANTA, GA - JUNE 07: TV personality Porsha Williams attends Columbia Pictures "Superfly" Atlanta special screening on June 7, 2018 at SCADShow in Atlanta, Georgia.

On Wednesday (July 15) Porsha Williams took to Instagram to call out Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron for upgrading one of her charges to a felony, following the reality TV star and host’s arrest at a Breonna Taylor protest (which we previously reported on).

“Wow [Daniel Cameron] you really took the time to upgrade 1 out of 3 of our charges to FELONY??” Williams asked Cameron on the evening of Wednesday, July 15. “This is disgusting …. meanwhile not one peep about this botched investigation of Breonna Taylors MURDER!!! Plus not one arrest of the cops …. instead you celebrate with your bride and give them Active desk duty to keep these killers protected.”

“You can’t possibly think this is ok! Sure create the possibility for peaceful protesters to get locked up for 1-5 years but absolutely no accountability for your officers?!!” Williams continued. “This is sad that this is the world we live in!!”

“It’s simple don’t kill us as we sleep in our homes, don’t kill us for sleeping in our car, don’t kill us from walking to a store and don’t kill our spirits and further oppress us when we stand up to say you are Wrong!! #JusticeForall #JusticeforBreonnaTaylor,” she concluded.

Williams was charged with intimidating a participant in a legal process, criminal trespass in the third degree, and disorderly conduct in the second degree. Cameron recently added a felony on Williams’ intimidating a participant in a legal process offense.

 

 

Williams, Love and Hip Hop: New York star Yandy Smith, rapper YBN Cordae, and activist Tamika D. Mallory were among the 87 arrested during a protest on the lawn of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, as WLKY reported.

A group called Until Freedom and The Grassroots Law Project led the protest that took place.

On March 13, Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT, was killed when she was shot eight times by law enforcement after officers broke down the door to her Louisville apartment while executing a no-knock warrant in a narcotics investigation.
