John and Edward Grimes (known professionally as “Jedward”) just joined Black Lives Matter protestors on Tuesday in West Hollywood, California.

The twins, who have been quarantining in Los Angeles with their best friend actress Tara Reid (it's a long story), came together to unite in country-wide protests against the killing of unarmed black man George Floyd.

In a series of tweets, one half of Jedward held up a “Black Lives Matter” sign as the other drove a car through the peaceful protest along Santa Monica and Hollywood Boulevards.

They then accompanied fellow protestors in chants, as well as joined hands against the police – all while wearing face masks:

Naturally, people had a lot of thoughts about the X Factor-turned-Eurovision stars at the protest:

There have been protests in all 50 US states since the death of George Floyd nine days ago in Minneapolis.

Since then, videos have emerged of police firing tear gas at peaceful protestors, violent protests outside the White House and countless injuries sustained by police brutality.

An unarmed black man was also killed by police, even though he wasn't actually participating in the protests.
