Jonas also shared snaps from the protest, and captioned his post, “Black Lives Matter. ❤️.” According to Entertainment Tonight Canada, Jonas and Turner reportedly attended the protest in Mammoth Lakes, California on Saturday, along with their friends, Greg Garbo and Paris Carney.
Earlier in the week, Turner wrote on Instagram:
“My heart is heavy. I stand in solidarity with those speaking out against racism and fighting for justice and equality. Silence is not an option. While my voice is not one that needs to be heard, I want to highlight some of those we should listen to —
Turner also responded to a comment on Instagram from someone asking why she was still protesting Floyd’s murder even after arrests have been made. The actress replied, “This isn’t just about those 4 cops, this is about Breonna Taylor, this is about Trayvon Martin, this is about Eric Garner, this is about the systemic racism that black people have faced for hundreds and hundreds of years. This is about changing the system. Justice will be done when society reflects our beliefs that we are all equal. Until then, there should be no peace.”
