Lilian Garcia Speaks Out About Violence and Looting Happening Across the Country

Former WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia has been trending since she took to Instagram on Sunday to comment on the rioting and looting going on across the country. Violence broke out in several cities in the United States after peaceful protests were held over the killing of George Floyd while in police custody last Monday.

Garcia’s original post included footage of a protest outside of her home in Los Angeles.

She wrote, “Los Angeles PROTEST Happening outside my home in Los Angeles! I hope it all stays peaceful. Violence never solves anything! #blacklivesmatter #peacefulprotest #georgefloyd #justice #equality #equalityforall”

Garcia then made a second post that brought her a significant amount of criticism from fans on social media. She posted photos of businesses that were destroyed after the protests went south. She wrote the following with the photos:

“Yesterday I was supporting the protest to say that change had to take place and I understood the pain some of my friends were experiencing from the George Floyd death, BUT looting and vandalism is NOT the answer!!! Especially businesses that had NOTHING to do with Floyd’s death. They were already having a hard time due to the pandemic and now don’t even have businesses to come back to because someone felt like their agenda was more important. HATE NEVER REPAIRS HATE!! And putting a blanket statement that all cops are bad is NOT true and NOT productive. We NEED police officers or there wouldn’t be any order in this world. And I TRULY believe there are some good cops that REALLY want to be of service. I will ALWAYS choose to spread light in this world! That is the ONLY way to make REAL change. I hope you will be just as sad today to see what the negative actions of some have caused and choose to turn your hate and anger into something productive by spreading love. This could sound corny to some but I don’t care. It IS the ONLY way to truly make change! Know that I LOVE you my #lilarmy ! #blacklivesmatter #georgefloyd #love #lariots #bethechange #spreadlove #hateneverwins #losangeles”
