Selena Gomez uses her Instagram follower count of 178 million people for the better good. To shed light on important causes amid the Black Lives Matter movement, the “Kill Em with Kindness” singer announced that she will let black leaders take over her account.

The 27-year-old singer captioned a post on Thursday that about this important moment in history, she’s been struggling to know the right things to say to get the word out and that she decided that everyone needs to hear more from Black voices after thinking about how best to use her social media.

Gomez added that she will be highlighting influential [sic] leaders over the next few days and so that they can speak directly to everyone, she’ll give them a chance to take over her Instagram. She then reiterated that everyone has an obligation to do better, and by listening with an open heart and mind, everyone can start. 

Gomez’ message was accompanied with an artwork entitled “Speak With Confidence” from Charly Palmer.

On Saturday, May 30, the Disney Channel alum previously showed her support for Black Lives Matter. Via Instagram, she explained that she has spent the last 24 hours just trying to process everything, and that nothing anyone says is capable to take back what has happened, but everyone can and must all make sure to take action. She added that for far too long, too many black lived have been taken away – they deserve better and they deserve better. Everyone needs to do better and not just sit in silence as the injustice continues.

The singer ended her post with the hashtags #blacklivesmatter, #justiceforgeorgefloyd and #icantbreathe.

George Floyd’s death on May 25 triggered a social justice movement across the country. In a video captured by a bystander, police officer Derek Chauvin was seen pressing his knee into the 46-year-old’s neck for almost nine minutes. Before he eventually became unresponsive, Floyd said that he can’t breathe. Since then, Chauvin has been fired from the Minneapolis Police Department and charged with second-degree manslaughter as well as third-degree murder.

Meanwhile, regarding the cause, Gomez is not the only celebrity to speak out – some have donated to organizations assisting in the movement while others have joined in protests.
