A Children's Illustrator Is Losing Fans Because Of Her Anti-Racist Art

"There are no words to express how little I care if I lose every bigoted, racist, homophobic and/or sexist follower I have."

But today, some of those fans are not so happy with anti-racist artwork she's posted on her Facebook as a tribute to Michael Brown, who was killed nearly a year ago.

The first, posted early this morning, shows a mother and child in front of a newspaper (from "Everywhere, USA") that reads, "Hands up! Don't shoot."

The second post seems to be a response to reactions to the previous picture.

It reads, "I will not stay silent so that you can stay comfortable."

In an email response to BuzzFeed, Engelbreit said she "believes the artwork speaks for itself" and declined further comment.
