Philando Castile’s girlfriend, Lavish ‘Diamond’ Reynolds, is beside herself with grief over his tragic death. The deadly Dallas police shooting that occurred just one day later nearly sent her over the edge, and she has bravely spoken out about why the event hurts her just as much.
Lavish Reynolds, the girlfriend of Philando Castile, is devastated by the Dallas shooting where 5 police officers were killed by a sniper during a protest on July 7. As she mourns for her own loved one, Lavish has boldly taken a stand on the second awful event to occur in as many days, coming forward to tell America why the shooting is “bigger than all of us”. Watch the heartbreaking videos here.
In the wake of multiple devastating events — first, the death of her boyfriend, then the tragic Dallas police shooting — Lavish Reynolds courageously stepped forward to publicly let her voice be heard. “Today is not only about justice. It’s about all of the families who have lost people,” she told CNN as she broke down sobbing. Watch below:
“This thing that happened in Dallas is not because of something that transpired. This is bigger than Philando. This is bigger than all of us,” Lavish added as tears streamed down her face. “Today, I just want justice for everyone. Everyone around the world. Not just for my boyfriend and the good man that he was. I’m going to continue to stay strong and I want you to all do the same.” So inspiring.
Lavish also spoke to Good Morning America, expressing her hurt and sympathy for the families of the police officers who lost their lives. “It hurts me, what’s going on in Dallas. Nobody should have to be taken away from their families,” she said, also through heavy hobs. “We have absolutely no control over anything that’s happening in this world. My deepest condolences go out to those families and to those officers in Dallas, because I’m in here in Minnesota and I’m mourning for the loss of my loved one. So I know that those people in Dallas are hurting also.” Just awful.
