Kylie Jenner Reacts To George Floyd Death – “Don’t Let His Name Be Forgotten”
What started as the police in Minneapolis being called about someone who was trying to pass a counterfeit bill at a neighborhood grocery store, at Cup Foods, has led to the death of George Floyd – a man matching the suspect’s description. He was ordered out of his car but the police claim he “physically resisted.”
We then see on Facebook Live a white officer with his knee on the neck of an African American man, George Floyd. He was pinned down and he’s heard saying, “Please, please, please, I can’t breathe,” the man begs. “My stomach hurts. My neck hurts. Please, please. I can’t breathe.”
Those words have spread like wildfire and it’s sparked several protests and looting in Minneapolis since the “devastating and completely heartbreaking video” surfaced online.
While reacting to the death of George Floyd, Kylie Jenner stated in an Instagram post that she been unable to get his face and his words out of her mind. She wrote:
“Since watching the most devastating and completely heartbreaking video showing the murder of George Floyd earlier this week I haven’t been able to get his face and his words out of my mind. i’ll never personally experience the pain and fear that many black people around the country go through every day but i know nobody should have to live in fear and nobody deserves a death like George Floyd and too many others. speaking up is long overdue for the rest of us. we’re currently dealing with two horrific pandemics in our country, and we can’t sit back and ignore the fact that racism is one of them. i fear for my daughter and i hope for a better future for her. my heart breaks for George Floyd’s family and friends.
Don’t let his name be forgotten. keep sharing, keep watching, keep speaking out, because it’s the only way we can come together to help bring this much needed change and awareness. Rest In Peace, George Floyd.”
