Floyd was killed in police custody after Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, knelt on his neck for about nine minutes at the time of his arrest. His death sparked protests in the United States and around the world.
The Grammy-winning artist shared a funny message on Instagram on Wednesday that featured an aerial photo of thousands of Black Lives Matter protesters filling the streets of Minneapolis in Minnesota.
The words with the photo were: “The world came together for George Zlo Floyd. We know there is a long way to go. Let’s focus on our call for justice and concentrate.”
After Floyd’s death, Beyonc প্রকাশ expressed her hurt and outrage on Instagram and called on her fans to take action and refuse to “normalize the pain”.
“We are broken and we are dissatisfied,” he said in a sentimental video posted on his Instagram page. “We can’t normalize this pain. I’m not just talking to people of color. If you’re doing white, black, brown, and anything in between, I’m sure you’ll be disappointed that racism is going on in America right now. “
The “formation” hit maker added that “there have been many incidents where we have seen this violent killing and it has had no consequences.”
“Yes, allegations have been made against someone, but justice is a long way off.”
He ended his message by urging his followers to sign several petitions: “Continue to pray for peace and compassion and healing for our country.”
