Travis Scott has broken his silence about the unrest America is in following the death of George Floyd.
On Sunday (May 31), La Flame shared a two-part Instagram post to discuss his thoughts about racism and police brutality.
“As I pace around thinking, trying to find something to ease the pain… there are almost no words that I can think of to properly express, or I can use to suppress, this enraged feeling of us continuously losing our brothers and sisters to brutality at the hands of officers, or anyone with misguided intentions for our well-being,” he wrote. “The rage that we are feeling is from direct personal experience and the constant pain of wanting our voices to be heard,” he continued. “To be seen as equal and human, too. We have to change and reform police policy in our U.S. cities, and there needs to be accountability immediately! Especially when officers abuse power to the point where it callously takes a life.”
He went on to send his condolences directly to the family of George Floyd, and credited fellow Houston native Bun B for helping him come up with actionable items to address reform.
“My heart goes out to George Floyd’s family and everyone who’s suffered loss based on this type of senseless injustice and brutality,” he wrote. “Me and the team are gonna do everything possible to make sure these issues are addressed on a long-term basis. Thank u Bun for picking me up this morning and helping me figure out ways I can really help move this forward. Love. See you all soon!”
Scott’s on-again/off-again girlfriend and daughter’s mother, Kylie Jenner, also posted about Floyd’s death and vowed to continue using her voice to help bring change and awareness.
