And so I think in a lot of that, you end up being misunderstood.”
These days, nonetheless, Palmer is not so apprehensive about what folks consider her. Last 12 months, a video of her imploring a member of the National Guard to march alongside protestors throughout one of many summer season’s Black Lives Matter demonstrations went viral.
The actress told Jimmy Kimmel at the time, “I feel like there’s such a division being created in society right now from every angle, whether you’re in the military, whether you’re Black, white, whatever, that I just felt like we all need to come together and I think I just was really overwhelmed and I didn’t know really what I was saying. I was just really speaking from my heart and how I was feeling.”
