What the fuck is happening in the world?
After the horrific, discriminatory murder of George Floyd, #BlackLivesMatter are seeking to bring justice and freedom to Black people across the globe, and you only have to look on social media for two milliseconds to see the traumatising injustice.
The likes of Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson and Timothée Chalamet marched across America to support the movement campaigning against the systemic racism towards Black people.
The 53-year-old actor, John Cusack – who’s known for roles in films such as Say Anything…, Being John Malkovich and High Fidelity – shared his experience with Chicago police.
John was said to be filming a burning car when officers approached him and began “hitting [his] bike” with batons. He then uploaded the footage to his 1.6 million followers.
He is thought to be unharmed after the incident, and joins the likes of Beyoncé, Dwayne Johnson and Chris Evans in showing their support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
On May 25, George Floyd was murdered by police, after he allegedly paid for cigarettes with a counterfeit $20 note. Footage showed three police officers kneeling on George’s neck, with him even stating that he couldn’t breath; begging them not to kill him.
According to autopsy reports, officer Derek Chauvin had his knee on George’s neck for over eight minutes, and he has since been charged with George Floyd’s murder.
You can help support George’s family by donating to the Official George Floyd Memorial Fund, which is set to cover funeral expenses, as well as grief counselling for his family.
