Keith Powell is an actor who is best known for his role as James “Toofer” Spurlock on the NBC sitcom “30 Rock.” In the wake of the terrorist attack in Paris, he tweeted the #JeSuisCharlie hashtag and urged “extremist nutjobs” to stop killing people in the name of their religion.
Earlier today, actor/comedian Kumail Nanjiani encouraged publications to publish the Charlie Hedbo newspaper’s Mohammed cartoons that preceded today’s attack.
It will be interesting to see how many other entertainers follow suit.
