In a recent interview with Ebony.com artist/producer Pharrell Williams was asked about the recent judgement not to indict Darren Wilson, the officer who shot and killed Mike Brown and the surrounding situation in Ferguson. Williams was very clear in his response to the questions even commenting on Mike Brown’s “bully-ish” behavior in a convenience store prior to being shot.
“EBONY: Did you see the video allegedly showing Michael Brown stealing from a convenience store minutes before his death?
WILLIAMS: It looked very bully-ish; that in itself I had a problem with. Not with the kid, but with whatever happened in his life for him to arrive at a place where that behavior is OK. Why aren’t we talking about that?”
Williams was sure to let Ebony.com know he does think that Mike Brown did not have to be killed and that Officer Darren Wilson should have been punished. Click right here to read the entire interview for yourself.
