Harry Styles, the former One Direction singer, expressed his support for the Black Lives Matter protest in LA, Just Jared revealed. The 26-year-old singer-songwriter was seen holding up signs, marching, and at one point, he even took a knee.

One fan of the singer who goes by the name, Angela, said she marched next to the performing artist, and it meant the world for her to be there with him. She added that it was great to hear about other stars such as Ariana Grande and Halsey protesting the same things she cares about.
She wrote, “I feel f*cking validated!” Another Twitter user said that he didn’t care about what Harry Style’s fans had to say, he just wanted to show Harry out there doing his part, being respectful to other people, giving out water, and also sharing words of encouragement.
Of course, Harry Styles isn’t the only singer-songwriter to be spotted amid the protestors. As it was noted by Angela above, Halsey was also seen giving a hurt demonstrator medical attention. Moreover, yesterday, it was reported by Bridget Hill that Jaime King was amid the protestors as well.
On the 3rd of June, Bridget Hill picked up on a social media post from the Black Summer star in which she said she was among many people who were arrested, loaded up on a bus, and taken across town. She complained about the conditions in which protestors were staying.
According to King, she was among a large group of people who were detained for around four hours. Police shipped a group of people from the 77th Precinct to San Pedro. She complained of poor conditions, including a lack of bathrooms, medications, and also individuals in need of medical attention.
Additionally, King shared a post in which she offered her massive platform to Krystina Arielle Tigner. She said it was her way of “amplifying” black voices amid #BlackOutTuesday.
