On Monday riots broke out in Baltimore following the murder of Freddie Gray on April 19 when he suffered a spinal cord injury while in police custody. Six officers that took part in the arrest have been suspended with pay. You can see a portion of the arrest in the video.

As national television coverage arrived in Baltimore Monday afternoon, residents expressed their anger and grief for the lack of attention to Freddie Gray’s death, prior to the uproar.

There is no dispute that there are major economic disparities in this city (and around the country), yet the riots resulted in damaged buildings including a senior citizens’ home, police officers injured, and a weeklong city-wide curfew from 10pm-5am. Mayor Rawlings-Blake announced that Baltimore City Public Schools will be closed on Tuesday, which many of its students rely on free and reduced-priced meals. On the contrary, community organizations and leaders have come together offering free meals to Baltimore residents here.

In the midst of Monday’s riots, many people took to Twitter to discuss their discontent with celebrities who decided to remain silent on social media, however, find it convenient to tweet or Instagram when there’s a new product to promote. On the contrary, when you look to your favorite celebrities to speak out on social matters, you run the risk of agreeing or disagreeing with their opinion.

Here is some of Hollywood’s biggest stars and prominent media figures who chose to speak out.
