During her performance there was a shot fired sound effect and shortly after there was an audio recording of Malcolm X saying “The most disrespected, unprotected and neglected person in America is the Black Woman.

Right after Malcom X’s speech, an audio recording of Tamika Mallory saying “Daniel Cameron is no different than the sellout Negros that sold our people into slavery”, which brought a lot of attention to SNL”s audience.
Following that audio recording Megan Thee Stallion got on the mic and said, “We need to protect our Black Women and love our Black Women cause at the end of the day we need our Black Women. We need to protect our Black Men and stand up for our Black Men because at the end of the day we’re tired of seeing hashtags about Black Men.”

Megan Thee Stallion sent that message in regards to Breonna Taylor’s case, police brutality, racism, protests and being Black in America as a Black Woman and a Black Man however, Attorney General Daniel Cameron thought otherwise.
Daniel Cameron, the first Republican Attorney General in over 70 years and the first Black Attorney General in Kentucky responded to critics and Megan Thee Satallion’s performance in an interview Tuesday on Fox News Morning Show “Fox and Friends” stating that he do agree that “We need to love and protect our Black Women.” He also stated, “But the fact that someone would get on national television and make disparaging comments about me because I’m simply trying to do my job is disgusting.”
Cameron goes on to say “At the end of the day my responsibility is to provide facts and truth and represent and stand up for justice.”
Breonna Taylor, 26, was shot and killed by Lousiville, Kentucky police officers in March, however the grand jury in Jefferson County, KY., decided not to indict the Louisville officers who shot her. Though the grand jury indicted one of the three officers, Brett Hankinson, a former Louisville police detective with three counts of wanton endangerment for allegedly endangering the lives of Taylor’s neighbors, Family and Friends of Breonna Taylor and Activist and Protesters believe that it is not enough.
Activists and Protesters have been questioning and criticizing Daniel Cameron’s decision of not charging the officers with an homicide charge. Activists and Protesters are still demanding that all of the officers involved in shooting Taylor be charged in her death.
