Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West posed with Alton Sterling’s son Cameron after he attended West’s concert for his 16th birthday.

“Shoutout to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian for showing 16th bday love last night to my client Cameron Sterling, eldest son of Alton Sterling,” tweeted Justin Bamberg, the Sterling family attorney.

Alton Sterling was shot by police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in July after being pinned down to the ground. His death prompted more Black Lives Matter protests.

Kim Kardashian mentioned Sterling in her open letter in support of Black Lives Matter. “This week we watched Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two innocent black men, get senselessly murdered by police officers,” Kardashian wrote back in July. “Like a lot of you guys, I watched the videos, and was appalled and completely heartbroken. I was left speechless, angry and numb.”

The reality star has been largely out of the spotlight since she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris early in October. She has been seen at some of West’s concerts and is reportedly returned to filming Keeping Up With the Kardashians
