10 Twitter Moments | Cardi B Speaks Out On Police Brutality

I'm going to be completely honest with you, guys. Every week I write this column with the intention of providing you with a laugh or two. But this really isn't the time for humor. We're living through a crucial moment in history. Right now, all of us need to be using our platforms to demand justice and stand up for real change. Consequently, We Are: The Guard dedicates this week's edition of 10 Twitter Moments to the many allies and activists in the music industry who have taken to social media to speak out over the last seven days. Here's hoping it encourages you to do the same. Check out the following tweets from Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Zendaya, and more.
