RHOA fans applauded Porsha Williams in May. She attended a peaceful protest in Atlanta in support of Black Lives Matter. Recall, “In some cities, the police joined the protesters,” we noted. While some protests turned violent, that one Porsha went to seemed peaceful enough. But, her arrest in Lousiville at a protest against the killing of Breonna Taylor got a mixed reaction from fans of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta.
RHOA – Porsha Williams arrested and released
US Weekly reported that Porsha got arrested along with 87 other people. Her sister Lauren took to Instagram and described Porsha as “fearless.” She added, “You mess with her people, you mess with her.” Porsha apparently took the death of Breonna Taylor “personally.” Like many there, she joined the protest in the hopes the shooters get “held accountable for their actions.” Many fans of Real Housewives of Atlanta loved her passion for justice.
The Blast reported that Porsha spent only a short time in jail. Her release came the next day and she shared a photo of herself with Breonna Taylor’s mom. But, as the circumstances of the arrest and the actions of the protesters emerged, more RHOA fans started slamming Porsha for it. Twitter sees many mixed reactions from fans. And, some of them actually adore Porsha on the Bravo show. An interesting viewpoint arose in the comments.

Critics bring a mixed reaction to Porsha’s arrest
Other people feel that Porsha Williams and her co-protesters overstepped the boundaries. They went onto private property. People feel that brings a non-peaceful threat as it also comes with intimidation. Here’s what a few of those critics said about it:
- “Stop protesting outside peoples houses because it is trespassing which is ILLEGAL, and then maybe you won’t get arrested. Yes I know, cops went in and shot Breonna, but two wrongs don’t make a right.”
- “I am all for #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor & for peaceful protesting. I applaud #PorshaWilliams for speaking her voice & being w the protesters. But this became an unpeaceful protest when you trespass on private property. Keep it on the public street.”
- “intimidating a court official is against the law, on private property. Actions cause [reactions]. Live with your choice and take responsibility.”
- “You can’t be on someone’s property. Were they just trying to get arrested???”
- “#PorshaWilliams of [RHOA] PLEASE be a role model for lawful peaceful protesting.”
- “@Porsha4real So you cool with a bunch of protesters on your property refusing to leave?”
- “@Porsha4real It is not a “peaceful protest” when you’ve used mob force to annex someone’s privately owned front lawn, you lying snake.”
