The case of Rodney Reed has been headline news for weeks. Reed has spent over 20 years in prison and on death row for the murder of Stacey Stites in which he has maintained his innocence. Reed was slated to be executed on November 20th, 2019.
Many celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Busta Rhymes, Shaun King, Rihanna, Dr. Phil, and Amanda Seales, have all rallied to have Reed’s execution stopped in the state of Texas, but now Seales has some regrets for supporting him.
The ‘Insecure’ actress posted on her IGTV, why she regrets supporting Rodney Reed and signing the petition in his name. In the video, Seales explained that she wished she would’ve done her own research on Reed beforehand. See what else she had to stay in the video.

In this era of add water activism it is very easy to fall for mass movements in directions of both cancelation and/or exoneration. I apologize for my error in rushing to the aid of this cause without knowledge of the full scope. I will be more mindful in the future. Be wary, be watchful, be wise. These are unseemly times.

Reed was granted a stay of execution by the governor of Texas.
