Love & Hip Hop: New York star Yandy Smith has spoken out about her arrest in Lousiville during a peaceful Breonna Taylor protest.
Smith was one of near 100 protestors, including Porsha Williams and Trae Tha Truth, who were arrested and detained while trying to get justice for the woman who was killed in her own home by police officers.
“Today is my son’s birthday. It’s ironic that the hours I was in labor (27) prior to having him, 8 years later I spent in jail and outside the jail fighting for his life. BREONNA TAYLOR’S death awoke the mother prowess in me, hugging her mother awoke the fighter in me,” she wrote.
“I won’t stop! YOUR FELONY CHARGES WONT INTIMIDATE ME! Please know not only would I go to jail I would die for my children to have the same liberties my ancestors were beaten, hung, water hosed and tortured for! Today I will celebrate my baby and I’m thankful I made it out of jail to do so, but don’t think for a moment I’ve forgotten the mission. Love is love 💕”
