Stefflon Don is one of the hottest names in female rap, making a wave out of the United Kingdom. She has broken into the American mainstream and she’s using her platform to spark change in the world, exposing the police after barging into her sister’s home and looking for her brother.
The 28-year-old rapper updated her social media channels, asking Boris Johnson and the police force in the U.K. how it’s okay that her brother is now a wanted man for publicly supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

“My brother is wanted by the @metpoliceuk because he said on Instagram that he was going to the BLM protest last Saturday but he did not even go,” she wrote on Twitter, expanding further. “They came bursting into my sisters house while her child was there ransacked it and searched every where. @BorisJohnson how is this ok?”
Stefflon Don continued by revealing that her brother is on license and the police are looking to recall him.
“Systematic oppression is real, and this is totally unfair,” she wrote. “These are the reasons we Protest. These are the reasons we are hurting, because we are continuously treated unfairly. We protest for equality, freedom, and for people to value our lives as much as they value others. What is so wrong with wanting this?”
