John Legend has the prison population in mind during the coronavirus pandemic, so he brought that conversation to light for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
In a Twitter video posted Tuesday (April 14), Legend addressed Cuomo in a poignant PSA about COVID-19's deadly impact on incarcerated individuals because "there's no such thing as social distancing, and ensuring good hygiene is not an option."
"Leaders must do everything possible to prevent incarcerated people and those who work in prisons from becoming ill and spreading. Gov. Cuomo, it's time for action," he continued in his plea. "You can make communities across New York safer and healthier by reducing the prison population."
