Selena Gomez Shuts Down Website For Blackout Tuesday; Shares Black Organizations To Support

Selena Gomez has shuttered her official website for today, in support of Blackout Tuesday.

The 27-year-old singer is one of the many pausing for the day and seeking out ways to lift up the black community and call for justice of racial inequality in America.

“It’s my hope today you are taking the time to do some introspective thinking about how we can all come together and listen to one another with an open heart and mind,” the statement on her website reads.

It goes on, “The country is long overdue for meaningful changes to our broken society. Black lives matter.”

Selena also listed several organizations to visit, including Black Lives Matter, When We All Vote, Color of Change and the NAACP.

Her new Rare Beauty company joined “Blackout Tuesday,” with its own statement.

“To our community, we are going dark tomorrow to take part in #BlackoutTuesday. It’s our hope that we can all take time to do some introspective thinking about how we can all come together and listen to one another with an open heart and mind,” the statement on Instagram read.

“We’re also thinking through how we can take action against systemic racism and make change. The country is long overdue for meaningful changes to our broken society. Black lives matter,” the caption concluded with the hashtag, “#theshowmustbepaused.”
