Madonna's son David dances to honour George Floyd after his tragic deathby Louise Griffin
Madonna has shared a video of her son David dancing to honour George Floyd after his tragic death.
US man Floyd died on Monday (25 May) in Minneapolis following a brutal arrest which was caught on video and showed a police officer kneeling on his neck as he cried out: ‘I can’t breathe’.
Immediately the public reacted and four officers were fired, with an investigation underway by the FBI and Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
Madonna is the latest celebrity to mourn Floyd after his horrifying death, sharing a video of David dancing to Michael Jackson’s They Don’t Care About Us.
The Vogue singer wrote: ‘Brutal murder travels around the world my son David Dances to honor and pay tribute to George and His Family and all Acts of Racism and Discrimination that happen on a daily basis in America. #davidbanda #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd #MichaelJackson.’
Madonna’s not the only star to be left in horror at Floyd’s death, with John Boyega saying on Twitter: ‘I hate racists with a passion. It’s very important at this time that we ignore ignorance.
‘That we ignore people who come through and try to make these situations what they’re not.
‘I’m not even apologising first of all, you lot better f**king believe that, there is no way that I have the opinion that there are no other forms of racism. Of course there are other forms of racism.’
John continued: ‘But, a black man was just murdered in cold blood in the street Stateside again, while saying that he can’t breathe. That’s a continuous cycle going on – although I don’t live in the States, I’m black. F**k that.
‘I’ll say it again, f**k you racist white people. I said what I said. If you don’t f**king like it, go suck a d*ck. It’s not about career, it’s not about money, a lot of people like to bring it up… all those things were part of my dream, were a part of working. That’s got nothing to do with how you treat people.’
Snoop Dogg shared a meme of former NFL player and activist Colin Kaepernick bending the knee alongside the officer kneeling on George, and simply wrote: ‘No justice just us.’
Cardi B posted a tribute photo to George and wrote: ‘Enough is enough! What will it take ? A civil war ? A new president? Violent riots ? It’s tired ! I’m tired !
‘The country is tired !You don’t put fear in people when you do this you just show how coward YOU ARE ! And how America is really not the land of the free ! [sic]’
