USA TODAY Logo By Charles Trepany, USA TODAY of USA TODAY | Slide 1 of 28: Following nationwide protests sparked by the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement, many celebrities have used their platforms to speak out against racism.  Jennifer Lawrence created a public Twitter account and her only tweets so far are about bringing awareness to racial injustice and calling for Breonna Taylor's killers to be brought to justice.  In the "X-Men" actress' first tweet  on June 16, she shared a short video on the criminal justice system. Her second was June 18 and included a statement about Taylor, who was shot and killed on March 13 after Louisville Police Department officers arrived at her apartment to serve a no-knock warrant in connection with a narcotics investigation. .  "For three months since her murder Breonna Taylor's family, the people of Louisville, Americans across the country, and many around the world have called out for justice,” Lawrence wrote. “We must not allow the erasure of Black women to continue in America. As many activists and leaders have been imploring for years: #sayhername."
