“F*** THIS S***. JUSTICE FOR RAYSHARD BROOKS. F*** THIS S***. #justiceforrayshard !!! WHY ISNT EVERYONE TALKING ABOUT THIS??”
Eilish’s brother and collaborator Finneas O’Connell also posted about Brooks’ death, writing, “This is so f***ed up man. And such a good example of EXACTLY what’s so f***ed up about the police in America.
“Asleep in his car in a parking lot. Shot to death. Don’t let yourself be numb to this. Don’t let the world stay this way.”
Among the countless others to voice their dismay and anger over the shooting is Run the Jewels rapper Killer Mike, who said he is “saddened beyond consolation.”
