Ashley Williams, the Black Lives Matter protester who interrupted a top dollar fundraiser for Hillary Clinton Wednesday night, slammed Clinton for not apologizing for her past support for mass incarceration.
In an interview with with Poppy Harlow on “CNN Newsroom” on Thursday, Williams complained that Clinton didn’t take “responsibility for the ways in which those words and her backing certain policies have affected black communities and communities of color.” (RELATED: Hillary Supporters Hiss At Black Lives Matter Protester Who Interrupts $500-Per-Person Fundraiser [VIDEO])
After being confronted by Williams on Wednesday, Clinton told The Washington Post, “In that speech, I was talking about the impact violent crime and vicious drug cartels were having on communities across the country and the particular danger they posed to children and families. Looking back, I shouldn’t have used those words, and I wouldn’t use them today.”
Reacting to Clinton’s response, Williams said, “So one of the things I don’t hear in that response is an apology for mass incarceration. I also don’t hear her taking responsibility for the ways in which those words and her backing certain policies have affected black communities and communities of color.”
