On Friday, Brooks was shot in the back and killed while fleeing after a Wendy’s employee called police to report a man sleeping in their drive-thru. Eilish’s brother Finneas also reacted to the murder via Instagram.
“Justice for Rayshard,” he wrote. “This is so fucked up man. And such a good example of EXACTLY what’s so fucked up about the police in America. Asleep in his car in a parking lot. Shot to death. Don’t let yourself be numb to this. Don’t let the world stay this way”

Eilish didn’t sugar coat her response to George Floyd’s murder at the hands of police last month, either. The 18-year-old wrote a heated message to fans, educating them on white privilege and why “All Lives Matter” is a crock of shit.
