Recently, she posted a picture of herself wearing a t-shirt demanding justice for Breonna Taylor, the Black woman who was killed by police earlier this year while she was sleeping in her own bed.

“It’s been 150 days since Breonna Taylor was murdered in her home by Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove,” she wrote. “HER KILLERS HAVE NOT BEEN CHARGED! Almost every time, Black women who die from police violence are forgotten. Let’s stay loud!”

“We have to keep demanding justice for Breonna and her family, and WE CANNOT STOP UNTIL THERE IS JUSTICE!” she added.

She’s an expert in the kitchen.
