Same people who have been around her before the lock down. she chose to celebrate her husband with her family who have been in the house with her all along.
I wish I could say much but damn, this is totally unfair.
I hope you are happy whoever you are, wherever you are with this.
No one is above the law but these folks have been with her for well over 2 weeks.
We read and watch videos all over social media of folks attending weddings, funeral, churches and the cops shutting it down, some form of harassment Or even preaching to them to stop church for now but never for once an arrest.
I just saw the disgusting video of her in court and folks all around her, did y’all forget social distancing?
The same reason she’s been arrested. No mask ?
No gloves, nothing and she’s been arrested????
This is some Bull!
Something ain’t adding up! I pray for you Sis! I pray for the twins.”
