Musician John Legend, “Selma” director Ava DuVernay and “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda are among the stars and members of the Black Lives Matter movement speaking out on the death of Philando Castile, who was killed by police on Wednesday night in Falcon Heights, Minnesota.

Just two days after Alton Sterling was shot to death by law enforcement officers outside a convenience store in Baton Rouge, Castile met the same fate in his car at the hands of police during a filmed altercation that went viral on Facebook Live.

Also among the public figures who filled Twitter and Instagram with outrage over the deaths of African Americans in police custody on Thursday morning was hip-hop star Chance the Rapper, who has spoken out against police brutality in both his music and in interviews.

These guys murdered this man with his 4 year old daughter in the backseat? Is there any situation where police get arrested? Or convicted?

Miranda and DuVernay were also among the celebrities who took a broader view on this week’s shootings. Read a sampling below.
