Cole did not announce his trip to the St. Louis suburb prior to showing up in the town, but his appearance was captured by residents that then shared the moment on social media. Several people posted photos of the Roc Nation emcee at the site where Brown was gunned down and video of him embracing the crowd.
Cole was also seen talking directly with individuals upset over the Brown shooting and the actions of the police toward African-American citizens. When one fan asked Cole if she could take a picture with him he replied, “I’m not here for that, but I’ll give you a hug.”
