Porsha Williams is cooling her heels in a Louisville jail cell. Williams was arrested while protesting the murder of Breonna Taylor by Louisville police officers in March.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta TV personality joined other protesters outside the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron in Louisville to demand justice for Breonna.
Taylor, an emergency medical worker, was fatally shot multiple times in her own home during a bungled drug raid by three plainclothes police officers.
One officer has since been fired, but protesters say that’s not enough. They won’t rest until all three officers are let go.
According to Williams’ fiance Dennis McKinley, the reality TV star and mom-of-one was arrested alongside Women’s March co-organizer Tamika D. Mallory, rapper Trae tha Truth, and Love & Hip Hop co-creator and star Yandy Smith, among others.
Fans and friends admired Porsha’s courage and willingness to give her freedom for what she believes in.
“She has always been fearless. You mess with her people, you mess with her,” her sister Lauren Williams wrote on Instagram. “She takes the case of #breonnataylor personally and she’s sacrificing work, time with her loved ones, and her comfort to make sure the offenders are held accountable for their actions.
“This is her passion, this is her purpose. God please protect them,” she added.
