Kanye West and Kim Kardashian took time to meet Alton Sterling’s oldest son during a tour stop in Inglewood, Calif. on Tuesday (Nov. 1).
Attorney Justin Bamberg tweeted that Cameron Sterling was at the Saint Pablo concert to celebrate his 16th birthday. Bamberg shared a photo of Cameron standing between the couple backstage and wrote, “Shoutout to @kanyewest & @KimKardashian for showing 16th bday love last night to my client #CameronSterling, eldest son of #AltonSterling.”
Bamberg is on the legal team representing Cameron and his family in the wrongful death suit of Alton Sterling. Sterling was fatally shot by white police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana earlier this year. Following the news of Sterling’s death, protests launched all across the country. Kardashian spoke out with a blog post titled “StraightUp, #BlackLivesMatter.”
“This week we watched Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two innocent black men, get senselessly murdered by police officers. Like a lot of you guys, I watched the videos, and was appalled and completely heartbroken. I was left speechless, angry and numb,” she wrote. “I want my children to grow up knowing that their lives matter. I do not ever want to have to teach my son to be scared of the police, or tell him that he has to watch his back because the people we are told to trust—the people who ‘protect and serve’—may not be protecting and serving him because of the color of his skin.”
