Business are being broken into and looted at the hands of unhappy civilians, and Lori Harvey took to Instagram to express her frustration after her friend’s store was vandalized in the process.
“Atlanta, y’all took it too far last night,” Lori said in her Instagram story. “My heart is so broken for my friends. I know how hard you guys worked to build SacDelux from the ground up (2 BLACK women) and I can’t even imagine the pain of watching it get destroyed like that for absolutely no reason.”
She continues, apologizing to her friends:
“I’m so sorry this happened to you guys. The looting of SacDelux was absolutely senseless and disgusting. I’m just glad you guys didn’t get hurt in the process…I love you both so much and I’m here for whatever you need!”
While Lori hasn’t commented on the situation since, some folks have been criticizing her response, and emphasizing the importance of sticking together to fight for the larger issue at hand.
