Lori Harvey is kind of known for her silence. So people were disappointed to see that when she did speak up, it was to condemn looters for destroying her friend’s consignment shop. In a post shared via her Instagram stories, Harvey wrote: “Atlanta y’all took it too far last night smh…My heart is so broken for my friends @nikkisworld and @niceybabyy. I know how hard you guys worked to build SacDelux from the ground up (2 young BLACK women) and I can’t even imagine the pain of watching it get destroyed like that for absolutely no reason. I’m so sorry this happened to you guys. The looting of @sacdelux_ was absolutely senseless and disgusting. I’m just glad you guys didn’t get hurt in the process.”
But in her haste to defend her friends’ physical property, she hadn’t said anything about Floyd, police brutality or racism at large–all of the elements have been allowed to go too far.
After she was dragged for her comments, she shared her thoughts on Floyd.
