Adele Reflects on Deadly Grenfell Tower Fire on 4th Anniversary: ‘No One Has Been Held Accountable’

Adele made a rare appearance in Remember Grenfell, a film commemorating the fourth anniversary of the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire that killed 72 people. The special was released on Monday (June 14).

On June 14, 2017, a fire broke out at the Grenfell Tower block of public housing apartments residential building in West London and claimed the lives of 72 people. The award-winning British pop superstar appeared in an hourlong memorial special, in which she called for justice in the ongoing Grenfell Tower Inquiry that was formed specifically for this investigation. She also thanked Grenfell United, a group of families of victims and survivors of the fire, for “putting your pain aside for all these years to fight the fight.”

“The trial is taking way too long, and still no one has been held accountable for that night’s events. And yet Grenfell United are still out here fighting tirelessly for the justice and for the change that not only they deserve, that their community deserve, but the whole country deserves. And for that I’d like to thank you,” Adele said. “Thank you for putting your pain aside for all these years to fight the fight. I can’t imagine the sort of personal consequences that has on you.”
