Music super stars,Rihanna and Beyonce have cried out on the death of murdered George Floyd, the black man who died after being pinned down by a white police officer in Minneapolis
Rihanna was more vocal out of the two.She expressed her pain and how she has had to stay away from social media,so she doesn't see the George Floyd video,crying out in pain and begging for his life.Beyonce,on the other hand,was calling for action and trying to mobilize a movement.
“For the last few days, the magnitude of devastation, anger, sadness I’ve felt has been overwhelming to say the least!” Rihanna wrote on her page, with a photo of George. “Watching my people get murdered and lynched day after day pushed me to a heavy place in my heart!”
She continued, “To the point of staying away from socials, just to avoid hearing the blood curdling agony in George Floyd’s voice again, begging over and over for his life!!! The look of enticement, the pure joy and climax on the face of this bigot, murderer, thug, pig, bum, Derek Chauvin, haunts me!!”
“I can’t shake this! I can’t get over an ambulance pulling up to an arrest, a paramedic checking a pulse without removing the very thing that’s hindering it! Is this that fucking normal??? If intentional MURDER is the fit consequence for ‘drugs’ or ‘resisting arrest’….then what’s the fit consequence for MURDER???! #GeorgeFloyd #AhmaudArbery #BreonnaTaylor.”
Beyonce alsofollowed up with her own video on her Instagram.
“If you want to demand more charges brought on all those involved in the death of George Floyd, click the link in my bio to sign the petition,” she urged fans.
