Although most of Turner’s supporters were quick to support her activism, People reports that she engaged with a commentator who appeared to miss the point of nationwide protests.

In a response that has since been deleted, Turner explained that the protests were not just about “these 4 cops”.
“It’s Breonna Taylor, it’s Trayvon Martin, it’s Eric Garner, it’s the systemic racism that black people have faced for hundreds and hundreds of years,” -she writes. “It’s about changing the system. Justice will be served when society reflects our belief that we are all equal. Until then, there should be no peace. “
It is not the first time that the famous couple has been involved in their local Los Angeles community. In April, they donated 100 meals to a local hospital to help front-line workers fight coronavirus in the area.
