On Thursday, the 35-year-old posted pictures of himself on Instagram marching through the city with a megaphone wearing an "I Can't Breathe" T-shirt (above), writing in the caption:
"Me and my Squad out here taking our streets back!! @hawk.newsome and my team shutting NY down for #altonsterling #philandocastile and all injustice #BlackLivesMatter Don't just Hashtag it Be about it!"
Mere hours before he joined the protest, Cannon spoke out on the recent tragic events and his "outspoken" thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement.
Speaking to ET, the rapper made it clear he wanted to do more than post a hashtag, explaining:
"I like to live it. I'm kinda putting my money where my mouth is. I'm putting my efforts where my mouth is, and I'm actually in the community. I know we're all upset about a lot of things that are going on. Instead of getting out and just talking about it, I'm really trying to do it…You're gonna see a lot more T-shirts. But we're not just wearing T-shirts. We're actually out here making a difference."
Bravo! We applaud the TV personality for taking action and trying to make real change as opposed to just talking about it — and hope other people of influence follow suit.
Ch-ch-check out the rest of Cannon's posts (below)!
Taking to Facebook to recap his experience at the "post Trump inaugural fun and games," the journalist remembered watching Donald's mouthpiece punch a dude (actually!!!)... and this was all after a shouting match between actor Scott Baio and "a bunch of anarchist thugs" (Gasparino's words, not ours).
