Two popular music stars, Rihanna and Beyonce have totally condemned the death of George Floyd, the unarmed African American man who was pinned down with a knee to his neck and later died by a white police officer in Minneapolis.
The two big shots made the condemnation on their respective Instagram pages and demanded that more charges should be pressed on all the police officers involved
in the death of George Floyd after ex- Minneapolis officer, Derek Chauvin, who knelt on George Floyd’s neck till he died, was arrested and charged with 3rd degree murder on Friday.
Rihanna wrote on her page, “For the last few days, the magnitude of devastation, anger, sadness I’ve felt has been overwhelming to say the least! Watching my people get murdered and lynched day after day pushed me to a heavy place in my heart!”, she said.
She continued by saying, “To the point of staying away from socials, just to avoid hearing the blood curdling agony in George Floyd’s voice again, begging over and over for his life!!! The look of enticement, the pure joy and climax on the face of this bigot, murderer, thug, pig, bum, Derek Chauvin, haunts me!!”
“I can’t shake this! I can’t get over an ambulance pulling up to an arrest, a paramedic checking a pulse without removing the very thing that’s hindering it! Is this that fucking normal??? If intentional MURDER is the fit consequence for ‘drugs’ or ‘resisting arrest’….then what’s the fit consequence for MURDER???! #GeorgeFloyd #AhmaudArbery #BreonnaTaylor.”
Beyonce on the other hand, calls for petition from anyone who demands more charges to be pressed on the killers of George Floyd. She wrote making a video, “If you want to demand more charges brought on all those involved in the death of George Floyd, click the link in my bio to sign the petition”.
