American music Superstars duo, Beyonce and Rihanna have advocated for Justice for George Floyd who was murdered by police officers in Minneapolis.
A host of celebrities have condemned the killing of African-American Floyd who died earlier this week during a brutal arrest in Minnesota, United States.
Beyonce in a video shared on Instagram appealed to her fans not to ‘normalise’ what happened, and hold people accountable for their actions.
“We need justice for George Floyd. We all witnessed his murder in broad daylight. We’re broken and we’re disgusted. We cannot normalise this pain. I’m not only speaking to people of colour. If you’re white, black, brown, or anything in between, I’m sure you feel hopeless by the racism going on in America right now.”
Also condemning police brutality responsible for the murder of the deceased, Rihanna shared a post on her Instagram, noting that she had stayed away from social media just to avoid the “blood-curdling” cry of George Floyd.
She asked rhetorically, ” If intentional MURDER is the fit consequence for “drugs” or “resisting arrest”….then what’s the fit consequence for MURDER???! #GeorgeFloyd #AhmaudArbery #BreonnaTaylor”
