Hollywood actress Karrueche Tran isn’t biting her tongue. The “Claws” star went to social media this week to let loose some emotions after watching Netflix’s When They See Us about the now-infamous Central Park Five case.
Early Friday, KT jumped on Instagram to go all the way in on the case’s prosecutor Linda Fairstein.
Earlier in the week, various hip-hop artists lit up social media with emotional words for Fairstein.
The former Central Park 5 prosecutor caught massive heat this week following When They See Us premiering over playing a key role in having innocent kids put behind bars.
Linda Fairstein, a key figure in the wrongful prosecution of the Central Park 5, is facing a new backlash — the nonprofit organization she worked on for nearly 20 years wants her canceled … TMZ has learned. Ever since Ava DuVernay‘s Netflix series, “When They See Us,” debuted over the weekend, Fairstein has been feeling the heat. She was head of the Manhattan D.A.’s Sex Crimes Unit in 1989 when the 5 boys were convicted … and her role in coercing confessions is sparking renewed outrage. (TMZ)
This week, Fairstein resigned from her job at a non-profit organization following the flick’s aftermath.
In a letter to the chairman of the Safe Horizon victims-services agency, Fairstein said she wanted to spare it further grief through association with her. “I do not want to become a lightning rod to inflict damage on this organization, because of those now attacking my record of fighting for social justice for more than 45 years,” Fairstein wrote. Fairstein blasted the public outrage sparked by Friday’s premiere of the four-part “When They See Us,” about the convictions and subsequent exonerations of five teens in the 1989 rape and assault of Trisha Meili while she was jogging in Central Park.
