As if we didn’t already love Matt McGorry enough for his stellar acting in both Orange Is The New Black and How To Get Away With Murder, he has also proven to be rather educated on social justice issues.
McGorry has proudly been calling himself a feminist for a while now, even going so far as to say that becoming a feminist felt like falling in love.
He has also been an active supporter of the #Blacklivesmatter movement, being very vocal about his beliefs on both his Twitter and his Instagram.
Today, McGorry turned to instagram to speak about the decision of an Ohio grand jury to not indict the two police officers responsible for the death of Tamir Rice. The 12-year-old was shot to death in November 2014 while he was playing with a toy gun. The police officers didn’t even took the time to park their car.
Screenshotting a series of tweets of writer Ashley Ford and quoting his friend Rebekah Bentley, McGorry makes his stance on the subject abundantly clear.
We can only hope that Matt will continue being vocal about these issues that are so much more important than any celebrity news will ever be and we’ll be supporting him along the way.
