Movie exec DeVon Franklin “with love” called out tv host and radio personality Ryan Seacrest for not using his platforms to speak out against racism in America following the death of George Floyd.

“Now OK, now you’re my brother, Ryan, DeVon shared in the video posted on Seacrest’s Instagram page. So we’re having an honest conversation. I love how you have used ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest’ that page, your Twitter to be vocal about these issues. But Ryan Seacrest, the individual, on your social media pages has been silent around this,” he said. “That silence is the silence that we need to break because when white men, especially in power, are silent when they have influence, it by definition allows these issues to persist.”

A passionate Franklin continued,

“I can’t tell you what to post,” Franklin continued. “I would just encourage you to think about saying something from your personal page because you do have a voice and you are influential.”

In sharing the dialogue, Seacrest wrote:

I don’t always know all the right questions to ask, but today was a step in the right direction.

I’m thankful to be able to use my television and radio platforms to discuss the issues happening in our country today and I recognize the need to use ALL of my platforms to bring attention to these issues. We need to have more of these conversations, both publicly and privately.

I’m looking forward to having DeVon on the show again next week to have further discussions and in the meantime I am here to listen, learn, and support these movements via my platforms.
