Pharrell Williams is not ‘happy’ about how everyone is talking about Darren Wilson but avoiding talking about Michael Brown’s ‘bullying’.
In an interview with Ebony magazine, Pharrell Williams expressed his feelings about the case of unarmed teenager Michael Brown, who was shot and killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.
When asked about the topic of Ferguson, Williams explained that he doesn’t talk about race since it would take a “very open mind” to hear his views on the topic.
Williams say he is ‘troubled by what happened in Ferguson’ and after viewing surveillance video of Michael Brown stealing cigarillos from a local store he “had a problem with” it.
Pharrell Williams said he didn’t have a problem with Brown but with whatever happened in his life for him to get where he was in life to behave such a way.
Williams comments have been met with mixed reactions while the singer expressed he was heartbroken after he heard the news that Wilson was not indicted because he made his comments to Ebony before the grand jury’s decision.
I'm heartbroken over the news of no indictment in Ferguson. Let's all pray for peace.
