Following this, the ex-Glee star then encouraged her followers on Twitter to speak out, too, and use their platform to support the black community during this time.
“We all have voices. I don’t care how many followers you have. All of our voices and how we utilize our platforms is important. If it’s 10 followers, radicalize them, make them believers in themselves, that they can change the world and themselves for the better! Don’t rely on celebrities… Do YOUR part.”
The support has come at a good time for the Glee fandom who are currently reeling from the accusations that came that Lea Michele bullied many of her POC co-stars during her time on set. Riley has since spoken out about the situation, stating that she couldn’t give a s*** about the drama amid protests.
