The fatal shooting by Taylor at the hands of the Louisville Metro Police Department inspired nationwide protests in support of justice and criminal charges for all involved officers.

While Cameron did mention Taylor during his RNC appearance on Tuesday, he used her name as part of an attempt at pushing a Republican narrative about protests instead of offering a message on the importance of addressing America's decades-long problem with police brutality.
