Kim K is doing exactly what she needs to in the collective fight for criminal justice reform — no more, and no less … so says the famed defense attorney who inspired ‘Just Mercy.’
We ran into Bryan Stevenson Saturday in NYC, where he was doing press for the new flick about his real-life role in exonerating Alabama death row inmate Walter McMillian in the ’90s. Michael B. Jordan plays him in the upcoming feature, opposite Jamie Foxx.
Seeing how he’s a lifelong crusader for the cause, our photog asked what he made of Kim’s efforts to help put a spotlight on prisoners she feels have been railroaded by the system … including death row inmate Rodney Reed, who was recently granted a stay of execution.
As far as Bryan’s concerned, Kim’s doing a good thing by using her platform to bring attention to these cases … but he stops short of saying she’s a glorified savior of any kind.
If anything, it sounds like he’s downplaying how she’ll be remembered — and based on his careful answer, he doesn’t seem to believe her work is on his level … not yet, anyway.
Still, he gives credit where credit is due … and makes a point to do the same with President Trump as well. That doesn’t mean more can’t be done, though … at least in his eyes.
