The Weeknd called for justice in 2 police shootings of unarmed Black people as he received award at MTV VMAs

The Weeknd utilized his Sunday spotlight at the MTV VMAs to call for justice in two police shootings of unarmed Black individuals. As he made that big appearance to acknowledge his first win of the night for best R&B, the singer-songwriter was solemn and curbed. “It’s really hard for me to celebrate right now and enjoy this moment, so I’m just gonna say justice for Jacob Blake and justice for Breonna Taylor,” he said.
