The country is coming together in the fight against inequality. In cities across the map, protesters are lining the streets and demanding change. Those who are unable to protest are donating, speaking out, and making a difference any way they can. Celebrities, meanwhile, have paused their regular programming of promoting projects and doing interviews to to stand alongside so many others in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and TikTok stars are no different. Using their platform to spread the word, many of your favorite dancers, lip synchers, and Hype House members are speaking out against hate and racism. While some are out there marching others are taking advantage of their large followings to share links and information. Here's a look at how your favorite TikTok stars have supported the BLM movement.
Charli has been sharing a lot of links and information on Twitter, but she also posted a TikTok expressing her thoughts on the movement.
"As a person who has been given the platform to be an influencer, I've realized that with that title, I have a job to inform people on the racial inequalities in the world right now," she said. "How come when it comes to the color of a person's skin their treated differently? A man was killed. His life was ended. 'Don't kill me,' George Floyd says as his last words. His life should not be over and his name needs to be heard. George Floyd, a father and a person. A human who lost their life because of the color of their skin. We, people of all colors need to speak up at a time like this...We all have a voice. We need to stand up for what is right and stick together."

I was taking pictures at the event and ran into Madison while also marching at the event. Since she’s a celebrity I decided to take take pictures of her. I’m a free-lance photographer and have been to the event all 3 days and I’ve ran into her all three days, I just happened to have bring my camera yesterday."
