Porsha Williams of reality franchise Real Housewives of Atlanta has been spending her time doing more than shading her co-stars. She’s taken to the streets over the past few months to march against police brutality., while her co-stars are concerned with other matters, she’s trying to affect change in her own way.
Williams, along with other notable reality stars and personalities, have taken up activism as part of their contribution to the hundreds of people voicing their concerns about the current state of affairs. Williams has partnered with Love and Hip-Hop’s Yandy Smith-Harris, Women’s March co-founder Tamika Mallory and rapper-turned-activist Mysonne in the past to raise the profile of issues surrounding inmate’s rights
At one point, while demonstrating, Yandy Smith-Harris was reported to have been pepper sprayed and the moment was captured all over social media. Williams herself has been arrested previously, as both were caught up in a sweep when they were protesting Taylor’s death in front of the Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s home in Louisville.
It happened again when marching with organization Until Freedom. Williams, Smith-Harris, group co-founder Linda Sarsour and Mysonne faced charges of disorderly conduct and obstructing a highway. Until Freedom and its supporters are calling for action to be taken in the Taylor case, which is still ongoing since March.
Williams is quick to correct her fans and followers when they step out of line, especially when it comes to such precious topics as her activism and her child, Pilar Jhena. Recently, she clapped back at some fans who were trying to egg on beef between her and another cast mate over their children.
“B I N G O,” Porsha wrote in a post. “A lot of you MF’s just got Blocked,” the RHOA star said. “I hope your comment about my baby’s hair was worth it,” Porsha continued. “Her hair is longer and healthier than yours so please mind y’all bald-headed business! Thank you.”
Now, she’s fighting back against an even uglier claim on social media, related to something clearly dear to her – her voice as an activist and supporter of civil rights.
On Reddit, a fake post went viral that garnered attention from Williams and also a clapback. In a video from a protest, it was captioned that Williams was twerking – on a police officer, at that. Given her outspokenness about the current state of policing in the United States, it’s no wonder she took offense to the post.
“You all have really lost your mind ! If you can possibly believe I was dancing on a cop before being arrested […] I was actually picking up my water and had no idea he was behind me. Whoever took this pic and sent to reddit with this headline you should be ashamed of yourself. Smh SAD… Anyway I guess I shouldn’t have addressed this but I’m human to and this is a cause close to my heart.” Porsha wrote in a lengthy post fighting back.
