Stormzy Posts Powerful Instagram Message Following Deaths Of Alton Sterling And Philando Castile
| Last updated
Over the last few days, two black men being apprehended by police in the US have been shot and the incidents have caused outrage all over the world.
Alton Sterling, 37, and Philando Castile, 32, were both shot by US police officers in separate incidents just 24 hours apart.
Sterling was shot outside a shop even though he was being pinned to the ground by two policemen while Castile was shot five times when sat in the front seat of his car with his girlfriend and her four-year-old daughter also present.
Both shootings have caused mass outrage, resulting in protests, marches and even riots as we saw earlier today in Dallas, Texas.
Stormzy has since posted an emotional and powerful message on Instagram, calling on all of us, black, white, blue, green, yellow and orange to stand up to the injustices of the world and to try our best to actually make a change.
Our hearts go out to all those angry, annoyed, frustrated and upset by the killings and especially the loved ones of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.
