Beyonce leads the way, pleading for an end to "war" on minorities after recent shootings.

It's been a truly horrifying week in the US. Officer shootings of two black men - Alton Sterling was fatally shot outside a convenience store in in Louisiana on Tuesday, and Philando Castile in the passenger seat of his car - has sparked emotional calls for "something to be done".

Yet again, #BlackLivesMatter is a hashtag being shared on all social media channels - unifying collective shock and disbelief after the graphic aftermath of Castile's death was streamed on Facebook Live.

Hillary Clinton joined the chorus, issuing a statement that summed up many people's feelings: "Something is profoundly wrong when so many Americans have reason to believe that our country doesn't consider them as precious as others because of the color of their skin."

Beyonce also issued her own powerful statement, urging us all to "channel our anger and frustration into action" - linking to a United States congressional directory, along with the websites of the Louisiana and Minnesota Legislatures.

In a disturbing turn of events this morning, celebrities have been calling for calm after at least two people opened fire on police officers during protests in Dallas killing five officers and injuring seven others.

This is how many celebs reacted and responded to the latest deaths this week - strengthening the continued debate around police brutality, race and gun control in the US.
