The MTV VMA awards, as one might have expected were filled with social justice, racial inequality, and BLM shout outs.
Host Keke Palmer said “What we just witnessed in Kenosha, Wisconsin, is yet another devastating reminder that we can’t stop.”
She added “That we cannot tolerate police brutality or any injustice. We must continue the fight to end systemic racism. The leaders of that movement are you, us, the people watching tonight. It’s our time to make the change we want to see. We need to come together.”
Rapper DaBaby’s performance had him arrested, handcuffed and placed in the back of a police car.
The performance ends with him stomping on top of the vehicle while the city burns.
