Celebrities have joined the growing list of people calling for justice for George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died at the hands of a police officer in Minneapolis. Floyd died at the hospital on Monday after the white police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes as the 46-year-old yelled: “I can’t breathe.”

Reports said the officers responded to a call from a grocery store that claimed Floyd had used a forged cheque. His death, however, is just one example of the ongoing systemic racism in America where black people find themselves being killed during encounters with white police officers.
