On Monday, June 1 Porsha Williams and Dennis McKinley were part of a peaceful protest in Atlanta during the hours before the curfew. For no apparent reason, their group was tear gassed with pepper spray and had flash bombs thrown at them. Porsha was about to start a IG recording of the protest when the group was suddenly they were gassed. Porsha left her phone on for the full eight minutes. Somehow, Dennis managed to lose his phone in the melée. How will his other girlfriends call him now?
All of the people in her group were boxed in and surrounded by cops with no way to leave. She said she was going to leave her phone running because she was feeling very unsafe with no way out. Also it looks like she was wearing an orthopedic boot on one of her legs. We can hear Porsha say, “Do y’all see this? We in Atlanta, 7:45, the curfew is not until 9:00, we out here peacefully protesting and they tear gassed us for no reason at all. For absolutely no reason at all. Nobody did anything.”
I have to give Porsha Williams a LOT of respect. The girl is out there making a difference. She is voting. She is encouraging every to vote (we had a primary). While others are posting selfies and other vain things, Porsha Williams is on this situation. She’s won me over.
