STAN UP: Janelle Monae Gets ACTIVE On Twitter

Whenever big headline stories touch down in the media it is not uncommon to see your favorite or not so favorite celebrity weighing in on the subject matter. As of recently the hashtag #icantbreathe, in relation to the Eric Garner case in which a police officer choked him death in NYC, has been floating around social media heavily accompanied by empathetic emotions from various walks of life including songstress Janelle Monae.

When the news broke that the officer held responsible for the choke hold that took Garner's life would not be indicted, although Garner's death was ruled a homicide, social media went into a frenzy and Janelle retweeted many of the dismayed reactions. After doing so Janelle released her feelings via two short and simple yet straight to the point tweets.

I like her. We need more celebrities like Janelle who aren't afraid to say what and how they feel. Instead of those who take life altering events like this for self promotion/gain.

Anywho on a lighter note, check out Janelle on The Queen Latifah Show earlier this week.
