Lori Harvey has spoken out against police brutality after she criticized looters who robbed her friend’s store in Atlanta. She took to her Instagram page on Monday, June 1 to address Black Lives Matter, days after the killing of George Floyd and the subsequent protests that have spread nationwide.
“Over the past week, I’ve been trying to find the right words but I’m sincerely at a loss,” she began her post. “My entire heart goes out to the loved ones of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and every Black life taken at the hands of racism, police brutality, and racial injustice. I can’t even imagine the pain they are feeling.”
She continued, “Saying we want justice doesn’t even feel right. True justice would mean that George, Ahmaud, and Breonna would still be here. This is not the system I want my nieces and nephews to grow up in. This is not the world I want them to live in.” She went on calling for people to bring about “the change we want to see” amid the “overwhelming” situations and directing her followers to a link on her bio.
Still, people are not impressed that the stepdaughter of Steve Harvey only addressed the issue days after the death of George Floyd and after she called out the protesters. “She only said some cause everyone noticed she only cared when her friends shop got ‘looted,’ ” someone responded to her statement.
“I see you found the right words when it came to your friend store,” a second user reacted. Another didn’t buy her explanation, writing, “Save it sis !!” Someone else commented, “It’s always ‘have I been trying to find the right words’ when they get called out.”
Lori posted her statement on police brutality after she shared her reaction to her friend’s shop being looted in Atlanta. “I’m in disbelief. Im sick to my stomach. I still can’t understand what the point in doing this to US was but I PROMISE this will not be the end of @sacdelux_,” she expressed her sympathy to her friend.
She went on condemning the action in a now-deleted Instagram Story post, “Atlanta y’all took it too far last night smh. My heart is so broken for my friends @nikkisworld and @niceybabyy. I know how hard you guys worked to build SacDelux from the ground up (2 young BLACK women) and I can’t even imagine the pain of watching it get destroyed like that for absolutely no reason. I’m so sorry this happened to you guys. The looting of @sacdelux_ was absolutely senseless and disgusting. I’m just glad you guys didn’t get hurt in the process…”
She immediately faced backlash as she’s accused of only caring about her friend’s store rather than the more important issue, which is the social injustice to black people. “Lori Harvey is really a special kind of idiot, I can’t even say I’m surprised,” one slammed the social media personality.
“I don’t want to see any lori harvey posts after this s**t is done, shes a trick a** b***h tbh,” another decried the 23-year-old model. A third user added, “Virgil our (sic) here selling rugs with his slogan on it for a band and sent $50 funky dollars to the bail fund. Lori Harvey cryinggg SAC DE LOOTEd and the man she lets nut in her can’t help her b***hes? She has 1 bag in her whole closet that could help her friends.”
Someone else claimed she’s not surprised by Lori’s reaction, writing, “Am I the only one not surprised by Lori Harvey’s response. She voluntarily still deals with Future and her stepfather is Steve Harvey. Her decision making skills are questionable at best.”
