Common Runs Into Chris Paul at the L.A. Protests for Black Lives Matter

Common gives his friend Chris Paul a hug while running into each other at a Black Lives Matter protest on Saturday morning (June 6) in Encino, Calif.

The event was a Peaceful Youth Protest and Common took to Instagram on Friday to encourage fans to attend.

“I’m so proud and inspired by the youth. If you’re in LA tomorrow, come out and support a peaceful youth protest,” he wrote.

Chris, 35, is a basketball player for the Oklahoma City Thunder and he has been playing for the team since last year. He previously has played for the New Orleans Hornets, the Los Angeles Clippers, and the Houston Rockets.

Common, 48, is an Oscar and Grammy-winning rapper and actor who will next be seen in The Informer, set for a limited release later this summer.
