Singer Solange deleted her Twitter account this week – but not before expressing solidarity with the Durham protestor who has been arrested for her role in tearing down a Confederate statue in Durham Monday.
Solange Knowles’ final tweet came Tuesday night and concluded by asking, “When we gonna pull up? & what we got to do to get my new hero Takiyah Thompson free?”
Solange sent her last tweet at 8:15 p.m. after Thompson, a member of Workers World Party, was arrested Tuesday afternoon after a press conference at NCCU. She was charged with two felonies and two misdemeanors after she was recorded on video climbing a ladder to tie a rope around the statue, which subsequently brought the statue down.
