After fatal shootings in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Charlotte, North Carolina, Christian hip-hop artist Lecrae and the multi-talented Zendaya took to Twitter to express their unease and intolerance for such situations, namely speaking to the two most recent lives lost at the hands of police: Terence Crutcher and Keith Lamont Scott.

Terence Crutcher's Fatal Shooting Mourned by Questlove, Meek Mill & More: 'This Requires Everyone's Outrage'

Lecrae tweeted a news article from BBC on Monday and added a thought of his own: "We weren't made to become hashtags," before hashtagging #TerenceCrutcher -- making a statement about the regularity and normalcy of how a life lost becomes a trending topic.

Additionally, he tweeted: "Take a knee...people riot. Take a bullet...people quiet," which has been liked over 65 thousand times.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Zendaya wrote on her Twitter account, "Hands up...DO NOT SHOOT!" She has since retweeted Shaun King (senior justice writer for NY Daily News) as well as a tweet from Patrisse Cullors (founder of Power Dignity and co-founder of Black Lives Matter), which was originally retweeted by Scandal star Kerry Washington.

Lecrae and Zendaya are far from the only celebrities commenting on both losses, as other prominent figures from Lin-Manuel Miranda to Hillary Clinton -- who denoted the tweet came from her personally as she signed it with an "H" -- have used Twitter as a platform to express condolences as well.
