ADDRESSING FLOYD'S LOVED ONES

It is currently unknown for how long Kellie, a Laos native who was crowned Mrs. Minnesota back in 2018, and Chauvin have been married but they have no children together.

Still, it has been revealed in the statement that she does have children from a previous relationship and that she wants her children, elder parents and extended family to be given safety and privacy.

STARS' TAKE ON FLOYD'S DEATH

NFL player Colin Kaepernick was among one of the first celebrities to react to Floyd's death, sharing a post on Instagram that supports the people's right to "fight back."

According to Kaepernick, who four years ago took a knee during the national anthem to protest "systemic oppression," "when civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction." He added:

"The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance."

As aforementioned, Kaepernick was one of the celebrities who reacted to Floyd's passing. NBA star Lebron James made sure Floyd's last words wouldn't be forgotten by wearing a t-shirt that read "I can't breathe."

Singer Cardi B also took to social media to say that enough is enough, that the country is tired of all this violence and that America "is really not the land of the free."
