Solo’s final tweet addressed the arrest of Takiyah Thompson, who was placed in police custody on Tuesday (August 15) in connection with the removal of a Confederate statue in Durham, North Carolina.
“Deleting my twitter soon, but before I dip when we gonna pull up ? & what we got to do to get my new hero Takiyah Thompson free?,” she wrote.

Solange later expressed her frustration with the “deep dark rooted ugliness” present in the United States via her Instagram account, which is still active as of Wednesday (August 16).
“been trying to study myself been trying to practice self preservation during this time and not give racist ugly ass fuck bois who reek of citronella my energy so that I can preserve my spirit to perform this album,” she wrote. “fuck white supremacist fuck nazis fuck your stale ass bland ass monuments fuck asking folks to be graceful.”
