The intense events occurring in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray have garnered the attention of the media, the nation, some of the most prestigious platforms, as well as Hollywood.
Taking to her Instagram, the Queen Bey posted a photo of a man wearing a flag as a cape on his back, which reads “Freddie Gray” multiple times, captioning it in honor of seeking help for the NAACP.
People are hurting.
Join us in supporting the NAACP to help in the cleanup efforts and to provide housing, food and supplies to those affected by the unrest in Baltimore. http://beyonce.lk/naacp

The baller has expressed his grief many times over recent police brutalities, but he was spotted walking through the streets, standing strong with the rest of the city.
Alongside with Melo, Kevin Liles was seen in the streets marching with protestors, but a CNN reporter didn’t believe that it was him.
Reported Brian Todd approached the record executive for an interview, but stopped himself short, as he thought that he was Russell Simmons pretending to be Kevin Liles.
The reporter couldn’t seem to believe that Liles was really Kevin Liles, and the footage is pretty crazy.
