“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” cast member and rapper Lil Scrappy is one of many celebrities participating in the peaceful protests following the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor at the hands of police.
Over the weekend, Lil Scrappy uploaded pictures of himself posing with friends and DJ Greg Street from Atlanta radio station V-103.
“Went out and did a lil protesting and voting just to inspire others, but they inspired me thank you to all that are out there voting and protesting to for change, your thoughts and voice counts shout out @dedaproblem we here @thacommitteeent and @djgregstreet,” Lil Scrappy captioned the gallery of photos.
Alongside African-Americans’ fight for racial and social justice that has now become a global movement, civilians worldwide are also battling the coronavirus pandemic.
Lil Scrappy, aware of the still-present health danger, did wear a mask to protect himself during his day of activism. However, fans pointed out to the 36-year-old in his comments section that his mask was beneath his nose.
“Scrappy!!! Fix that mask! Cover your nose! 🤣.”
“Remember the mask go over your nose. Stay safe!”
“Hey brother, make sure your mask is always over your nose, and COVID can get in your eyes. Take care!”
“Thanks for doing that. Cover your nose with your mask.”
“U need to keep that mask up on ur face u got kids.”
“Keep the mask on your nose 😏 , please.”
From the comments, it seems as though Lil Scrappy’s fans were more concerned over his safety because he has children.
The MC is a father to a 15-year-old daughter, Emani Richardson, from a previous relationship with “LHHATL” star Erica Dixon, 1-year-old son Breland Richardson with his wife Bambi Benson, and the pair are expecting their first baby girl together.
Despite his fans voicing their health concerns about the rapper, they still applauded Lil Scrappy’s efforts to use his platform to encourage his supporters to vote and support change for the betterment of Black Americans.
