Kamala Harris praised NBA and WNBA players on Twitter, saying that have “monumental courage” for boycotting playing after the shooting of Jacob Blake.
Harris wrote “It takes monumental courage to stand up for what you believe in. NBA and WNBA players, keep standing up and demanding change.”
She was responding to Joe Biden, who wrote “This moment demands moral leadership. And these players answered by standing up, speaking out, and using their platform for good” while praising the Milwaukee Bucks.
Biden also shared a video of the full statement of the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Bucks boycott led to all NBA playoff games being postponed Wednesday.
