Jennifer Lawrence finally joined Twitter for just one crucial reason

Given that she is an extremely popular Oscar-winning actress, people will listen when Jennifer Lawrence speaks. Although she wasn't a fan of social media before, Lawrence recently came to Twitter to share her voice on a few key issues. The 29-year-old, in particular, felt she couldn't keep silent about the police killing Breonna Taylor in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.
On June 17, Lawrence published a message about Taylor's story. 26-year-old Taylor was killed in her home on March 13 when the police arrived with a warrant, ABC News reported. Her friend Kenneth Walker believed they were intruders and fired a weapon in defense. In return, the police shot over two dozen bullets and Taylor was shot eight times. There have been massive protests worldwide in response to the murders of Taylor, George Floyd, Tony McDade, Rayshard Brooks and many who had come before. Police have been indicted in some of these cases, but no action has been taken against the police that Taylor killed.
"As a Louisvillian, as a person, I cannot remain silent," writes Lawrence.
The actor speaks directly to the Attorney General of Kentucky, Daniel Cameron. "I urge you to commit to transparency in the investigation and prosecution of these officials and to address the LMPD's inadequate response to the murder of Breonna Taylor," continues Lawrence. "We cannot allow black women to continue to be wiped out in America."

It is clear that Lawrence will use her Twitter account to talk about the American judicial system and corruption. Her Twitter name, handle, and background photo all refer to RepresentUs, the anti-corruption organization for which Lawrence is a board member. RepresentUs' mission is to "pass powerful anti-corruption laws that stop political bribery, end secret money, and repair our broken elections." Of course, all of this overlaps very strongly with systemic racism.
Likewise, Lawrence has been on Facebook for years, but her posts are rare and are usually related to political or human rights issues.
In addition to her post on Taylor, Lawrence's only other Twitter post so far is a video by RespresentUs about the broken American criminal justice system and the extremely high detention rate compared to other countries.

Lawrence may not be great on social media to share her personal life, but she knows what her platform means and she will use it.
