Lady Gaga continues to be the voice of Hillary Clinton’s supporters on social media. Ever since Donald Trump was declared as the 45th president of the United States, the “Bad Romance” singer has been very busy spreading powerful messages to her fans and followers regarding what they should do given the situation the country is in.
On Friday, Lady Gaga took to Twitter and Instagram to share a black and white photo of herself. The singer-songwriter could be seen suspended in the air with her hands above her head as though she’s hanging onto something. She captioned the photo: “Stop throwin’ stones at your sisters and your brothers.” She added that she’s praying for America to “heal the wounds that are hurting with no violence & no fighting.”
Prior this, Taylor Kinney’s ex shared on Instagram a snap of a classroom blackboard that has been adorned with heartwarming messages to undocumented students, women, muslims, people of color, Mexican students and the LGBTQ community. A few hours earlier, she also shared a copy of fashion model Cameron Russell’s letter to the people working in the fashion industry.
Lady Gaga’s social media posts come in the wake of the many street protests that broke out after Clinton lost to Trump. Already two days since the presidential election wrapped up, many supporters of Clinton are still echoing their message against President-elect Trump.
In Oakland, California, local police told CBS SFBayArea that the demonstrations against Trump have become unlawful. Police said they had to resort to using tear gas after being provoked by the crowd. In Portland, Oregon, residents rallied and displayed “extensive criminal and dangerous behavior,” prompting local police to regard the demonstrations as a “riot,” reported CNN.
Meanwhile, in downtown Los Angeles, people gathered for the third night of demonstrations against President-elect Trump. The Los Angeles Times reported that the gatherings there were mostly peaceful until some demonstrators vandalized property and launched fireworks.
