Solange Knowles gave fans all the details about what happened when a cop pulled gun on her this weekend.
With lyrics like, “I’m not her and never will be/ Two girls gone in different directions/ Striving towards the same galaxy/ Let my star light shine on its own/ No I’m no sister, I’m just my God given name…”, Solange Knowles has always made it very easy for the media and fans alike to differentiate between she and her sister Beyoncé.
Recent happenings have proven no different. While sister Beyoncé has been raising commotion about her newly revealed baby bump, Solange used Twitter as an outlet to vent about her bump-in with Miami police.
“Been on the phone for the last 20 minutes reporting this incident," Solange tweeted. "Yes, I have the officer’s name. Yes I have the location. Scare tactics don’t WORK.”
According to the 26 year-old R&B artist-turned-DJ, she was the victim of discrimination, after an officer allegedly confronted her for seemingly no reason.
“A police officer just pulled a weapon on me…. I have NOTHING illegal, against the law, or anything of the sort," Solange claimed via Twitter. "I am simply tired of police using arrogance, ego, and authority as an offense”
She continued: “I’m only tweeting to raise awareness. I could have left quietly, but I am sick & tired of this scenario being played over & over again. …I’m just beyond frustrated with the system. It is time to do something about it.”
With the support of her followers, who encouraged her to file complaints and informing her of how long the Miami police department has been a problem, Solange ensures everyone that the situation is not over.
She tweeted in closing, “I am a mother raising a young Black child in America. I’m going to die trying!”
