Last night Solange deleted her Twitter account, a move motivated by the Charlottesville violence over the weekend.
Before she signed off, she asked her fans to rally on behalf of 22-year-old student Takiyah Thompson, the woman who was arrested in connection to the the toppling of a confederate statue in Durham, North Carolina. She was charged with felony offenses "participation in a riot with property damage in excess of $1,500" and "inciting others to riot where property damage exceeds $1,500," as well as several misdemeanors, including "damage to real property" and "disorderly conduct by injury to a statue."
