On May 30, the “Love and Hip Hop: New York” star shared a video that shows her protesting in New York with marchers and yelling, “No justice, no peace.” She included in her caption, “Can’t Be Silent! My Brother was murdered. My dad was murdered. My sister was murdered. My son was murdered. My grandfather was murdered. My Aunt was murdered. My daughter was murdered. When one goes. The blood is on all of us. We gotta fight!!!!!”

Smith-Harris’ posts come days after George Floyd, a 46-year-old unarmed Black man, died in police custody on May 25. Four Minneapolis police officers who were involved in his fatal arrest were fired from the police force. One officer initially was charged, while news of charges for the other three officers came on June 3.
