Free Meek Mill! That’s what celebrities, from La La Anthony, to Kevin Hart, to JAY-Z, are shouting from the rooftops after the rapper was sentenced to two+ years in prison. They’re calling for justice on social media, and promoting a rally in his honor. Take a look at their posts!
Screw #JusticeForBarb — it’s all about #justice4meek. Meek Mill‘s celebrity friends are doing everything they can to help Meek after he received what they view as an unfair prison sentencing — two to four years in prison for violating his probation with a low-level offense. They believe that the judge who sentenced him was biased, and that he was the victim of an unjust court system. That’s why they’re using their massive influence on social media to spread the word about Meek, and to promote a rally held in his honor.
JAY-Z wrote a heartfelt message on Facebook, telling his followers that, “The sentence handed down by the Judge — against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer — is unjust and heavy handed. We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career.” Jay also gave a passionate speech at one of his recent shows about Meek, captured on tape by DJ Akademiks. La La Anthony and Kevin Hart, along with others, posted the message about Meek’s rally on November 13 in Philadelphia.
The poster shows a black and white image of Meek, with the message, “”Our criminal justice system has failed Meek Mill and millions of others like him. We stand for justice.#justice4meek and #freemeekmill” The rally is scheduled for 5:00pm at the criminal justice center in Philly if you’re able to make it.
