Musician Solange Knowles deleted her Twitter account after the Charlottesville rally.
Before the singer left though, she wrote a final tweet in support of Takiya Thompson.
Thompson is a 22 year old woman who was arrested in connection with toppling a Confederate monument. She was charged with two counts each of felonies and misdemeanors.
Solange wrote: “deleting my twitter soon, but before I dip when we gonna pull up ? & what we got to do to get my new hero Takiyah Thompson free?”

Solange then went on her Instagram and posted a longer essay, where she discussed self-preservation and racism.
She said: “my sons first day of school has been in the midst of seeing this bulls**t images that still tell him this system was built to be against him”
