Porsha Williams is herself shocked out of her mind that the digital space would suggest she was twerking on a cop this weekend. The 39-year-old “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, twice arrested this year as she protested for Breonna Taylor, has continued her fight to see the murdered black woman receive justice, even landing herself a “Porsha in Protest” feature with The New York Times.
Porsha updated her Instagram on Sunday with photos and a video of herself surrounded by cops while she protested. The star was disgusted that a Reddit thread has turned her activism into, well, this. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos. They showed the Bravo face on streets, with the opening image coming as a side-by-side. The first shot showed Porsha in black leggings and a yellow shirt as she bent forward with a police officer behind her. The camera cut her face off, but she was clearly bending down.
The second image, meanwhile, showed the mom to Pilar Jhena waving an arm and in full protest mode, also keeping COVID-safe with a face mask. A shocking Reddit thread title read: “Porsha twerking at the protest, and stop saying it’s Yandy Smith, she’s wearing blue jeans.”
A quick swipe to the right also included a video of the moment Porsha bent forward. A caption shared with the star’s 5.8 million followers opened:
“You all have really lost your mind ! If you can possibly believe I was dancing on a cop before being arrested for peacefully protesting for our beloved Breonna Taylor.”
“I was actually picking up my water and had no idea he was behind me. Whoever took this pic and sent to reddit with this headline you should be ashamed of yourself. Smh SAD…,” Williams continued. Swipe right here for the video – scroll for more.
Porsha, dubbed a “crusader” for her Black Lives Matter activism by The New York Times, added: “I will not be discredited with foolishness.”
Instagram didn’t stay quiet with this one. Porsha’s followers are as shocked as she is, with celebrities even wading in. Haitian-American comedienne and media personality Jessie Woo replied: “Wow at the fact you had to address this smh ??♀️ people are so horrible sometimes.”
“Seems to me like the cop should be called out for moving behind you like that,” a fan replied, gaining thousands of likes.
Fans aren’t just backing Porsha amid the ludicrous allegation. They’re questioning why the cop got so close to the star.
“Why was he soooo close ?? That’s my question,” one fan wrote.
“EXACTLY LIKE HE MOVED RIGHT BEHIND HER SMH,” another replied.
Porsha made headlines back in mid-July for being arrested alongside Yandy Smith and Tamika Mallory while protesting outside the Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s home. The star continues to fight for 26-year-old Breonna, murdered by fatal shooting on March 13, 2020.
