Kerry Washington tweeted about a number of topics on Saturday, including the fatal police shooting of Deborah Danner.

Actress Kerry Washington was badly shaken by the recent fatal police shooting of a schizophrenic woman in the Bronx.

The "Scandal" star voiced her sorrow in the aftermath of the death of Deborah Danner, who was shot dead by a police officer in her apartment last week while she was wielding a baseball bat.

"The loss of #DeborahDanner has rattled my core," Washington began in a series of tweets Saturday. "Not only becuz of painful truth that we must continue to affirm that #BlackLivesMatter … But also becuz #DeborahDanner was killed in the community where I was raised. Community filled w/people I know & love."

Also the loss of #DeborahDanner has rattled my core. Not only becuz of painful truth that we must continue to affirm that #BlackLivesMatter

"My heart aches," she continued. "For lives lost and for the lives we must protect. For the humanity we must work to illuminate and preserve and affirm. #BLM"

Deborah Danner was shot and killed by NYPD police on Tuesday in her apartment in the Bronx.

During her so-called Twitter "rant," Washington also tweeted about the birth of her second child, Caleb Kelechi Asomugha, who was born earlier this month.

"I saw all your very kind & thoughtful congratulatory tweets. So yeah ?? we thank you. Xo," she wrote.

She also plugged the movie "Moonlight," which centers on a young African American man who has trouble finding his identity and coming out as gay during his early life in a rough part of Miami.

"It is artful food for your soul," she wrote, "At a time when so many of us need to be nourished."
