Celebrities are speaking out! If you've been on social media today, you've likely heard the term Black Out Tuesday being used frequently by not only your friends, but also some of your favourite stars. The internet is using the hashtag as a way to come together and show solidarity for the Black Lives Matter movement worldwide.
Although the ongoing protests and riots are primarily happening in the United States, Canadians have still been showing their support by hosting peaceful protests across the country, donating to different causes, and using their social media platforms to speak out on the ongoing issues.
Actors and actresses, reality TV stars, musicians, and athletes are just a few of the millions of people spreading the word. Many of them have also been taking the time to educate their followers on different topics by sharing helpful links and speaking from personal experiences.
