Kerry Washington: Excuse My Twitter "Rant," But...

by at .

Kerry Washington is so gosh darn adorable.

An actress who is nearly as private as she is talented, Washington gave birth to her second child this month.

She and husband Nnamdi Asomugha welcomed son Caleb Kelechi Asomugha into the world back on October 5, although news of this joyous event didn't go viral for a couple weeks.

We said Washington was private, remember?

Kerry Washington FTW

Which is why it came as a shock late last week when the Scandal star made like Kanye West and went on a crazy Twitter rant.

Okay, it wasn't that crazy. Not in the least.

But Washington herself dubbed her diatribe as such, which is why we adore her so much.

“It’s a quiet Saturday afternoon. So, a few things I wanna get off my chest,” the beloved actress began on Saturday, prior to delving into a number of issues.

First, the mother of two precious little kids thanked her four million followers for all the love and support they have showered her with after learning about Caleb.

“I saw all your very kind & thoughtful congratulatory tweets. So yeah we thank you. Xo,” she wrote along with a heart eye emoji.

However, Washington did not then ask folks to go watch Scandal online in order to catch up prior to the show's return in early 2017.

Instead, her messages took a far more serious turn when Washington mentioned the name of a 66-year-old Bronx woman who was reportedly shot and killed at her apartment last Tuesday by a uniformed New York Police Department sergeant.

“The loss of #DeborahDanner has rattled my core. Not only becuz of painful truth that we must continue to affirm that #BlackLivesMatter,” Washington wrote, adding:

“But also becuz #DeborahDanner was killed in the community where I was raised. Community filled w/people I know & love. So when I #sayhername."

According to various reports, officers visited Danner at home after neighbors called 911 because she had been behaving erratically.

In response, Danner - who allegedly suffered from mental illness - charged one of the cops with a bat.

Both Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Chief James O’Neill have condemned the gunfire and promised a thorough investigation.

“My heart aches. For lives lost and for the lives we must protect. For the humanity we must work to illuminate and preserve and affirm. #BLM,” Washington wrote.

In conclusion, she urged folks to go see the critically acclaimed film Moonlight, a coming-of-age film centered around LGBT issues.

“ALSO. Go see @moonlightmov this weekend. It is artful food for your soul. At a time when so many of us need to be lovingly nourished,” Washington urged, prior to ending her Tweets as follows:

"End of rant XOXOXOXOX."

KW Rant

And we know what you're thinking, Kanye:

You have got a lot to learn about ranting, Kerry!
