Joshua also posted a video of the speed he gave at the protest on his official Instagram account.
At the protest he said, “We can no longer sit back and remain silent on these senseless, unlawful killings and sly racism on another human being – based on what? Only their skin colour.
“We need to speak out in peaceful demonstrations – just like today, so well done Watford.
“We must not use a demonstration for selfish motives and turn it into rioting and looting.”
