As thousands flocked to the streets to protest the senseless death of George Floyd, many were arrested for alleged riotous behavior.

In response to this, Teigen, one of many stars advocating for justice for Floyd, tweeted that she would donate money to bail them out.

In her original tweet, Teigen wrote, "I am committed to donating $100,000." She added that it was to help post bail for jailed protesters all over the country. However, she later sent out a second tweet dialing up her donation to $200,000 saying more money may be needed.

The growing number of protests has also become alarming with the threat of COVID-19 still at large.

Earlier, Teigen earned a lot of flak for supporting protesters who turned riotous and violent. Not one to back down, she fired back by slamming those minding her business.

As of May 31, Madame Noire reported over 1,600 protest arrests across 22 cities in the US. There were also alleged shootings in Minneapolis where mayhem first erupted after Floyd died in the city while being restrained during an arrest.

The growing number of protests has also become alarming with the threat of COVID-19 still at large. In fact, Teigen’s husband, John Legend reminded protesters to continue to stay safe, distanced, and protected while out in the streets.

The Grammy-winning crooner also showed his solidarity with his wife when he tweeted his support for those defending the protestors. He named three organizations that will be receiving donations from them. This includes The Bail Project, Movement 4 Black Lives, and the National Lawyers Guild.

Like Teigen and Legend, many celebrities have also spoken up to express their dismay over the circumstances that led to Floyd's death. Among them were Rihanna, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Diddy, Ciara, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, and Ice Cube.
