Beyoncé has joined the growing list of celebrities honoring Louisville native Breonna Taylor on what would have been her 27th birthday Friday (June 5).

"Justice for Breonna. Click the link in my bio to take action," Bey wrote alongside an animated image of Taylor, with a link to the petition fans can sign to demand justice.

Taylor was killed on March 13 when a squad of police used a battering ram to enter her apartment using a "no-knock" warrant and opened fire, fatally hitting Taylor at least eight times.

Her name has been chanted by the thousands of protesters who've taken to the streets over the past week and a half nationwide to march in honor of George Floyd, the black Minneapolis man who was killed in police custody when a white officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes.
