LEWIS HAMILTON has protested against the killing of Breonna Taylor with a t-shirt demanding the accused police officers are held accountable.
Ahead of the Italian Grand Prix, the six-time world champ wore a shirt with the words: “Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.”
Taylor, 26, was shot dead when officers stormed her apartment in Kentucky on a search warrant for drugs in March.
Three officers were involved in the raid, including Detective Brett Hankison, who was fired while the other two were put on leave.
But there has been no convictions while her family have continued calling for justice.
And Hamilton has echoed those comments with the powerful statement as he took to Instagram to show off the message.
He also wore the t-shirt as he took a knee before the race.
Hamilton has been a leading voice during the Black Lives Matter movement in recent months.
That included calling on broadcasters to help support F1’s anti-racism message.
He also attended a BLM movement in London as protests were sparked around the globe following the murder of George Floyd.
Last month Jacob Blake, a black man, was shot seven times in the back by Police in horrifying footage and has been left paralysed from the waist down.
Following the shooting, Hamilton said: “I will try to speak to Formula 1 to see what else we can do to continue to raise awareness.
“Naturally as a sport, I think we all need to be aligned, supportive of each other, even though it’s a different sport.
“Ultimately it’s disgusting that minorities and people out there have to protest to get justice.
“And even when they do, justice is still not given.
“It’s such a mess over there but I’m really so inspired and proud of the other athletes out there that are utilising the platform they have, using their voice.”
