Celebrities React to Heather Heyer's Mom's Powerful Words at Memorial

Heather Heyer‘s parents, Susan Bro and Mark Heyer, gave powerful speeches at the memorial for their daughter, who was murdered while counter-protesting the hate and bigotry by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

“I’d rather have my child. But, by golly, if I gotta give her up, we’re going to make it count,” Heather’s mom told the packed crowd.

“They killed her to try and shut her up, but you didn’t do that. You magnified her,” she continued. At this line, the audience rose and gave Susan a standing ovation.

After watching the memorial, celebrities took to Twitter to praise Susan‘s words and slam Donald Trump for not denouncing white supremacy.

    Why are you blaming President Trump?

    Meanwhile Natanyahu condemned her and Bibi’s son thinks she and Black Lives Matter are a worse and bigger threat than Nazis.

    Not surprising considering how fascist Natanyahu and the Knesset is, and celebrities that went to preform there have to own their part in doing that. History will judge everyone harshly for that.

    WE can’t have one eye open and the other closed. We can’t care about injustice while turning a blind eye to injustice. We are either good people who do something or we are not.

    Good people do not preform for apartheid and fascism.

    He is pro Nazi (we beat them in WWII, remember?) who talks about using violence against people. He has given power to the assholes of this country. Luckily, they are being identified and fired left and right. You gotta be a special kind of stupid to hate someone for the color of their skin and spend your time being jealous. How about go home and fucking work hard at getting somewhere in life rather than being a little whiney brat with a fucking Pier One Ticki Torch. They actually bought torches. Lol what a bunch of loser insecure dorks. Seriously though, so whiney. Blah, blah, blah….so dumb. Besides, who wants an all white culture, the food would suck. You telling me you don’t like Tacos?
