Many celebrities have also taken to their social media accounts to show support for Floyd with many donating to different organizations. People want to see a change in how the police operate as many people of color have died unjustly in the hands of law enforcement.

The latest celebrity to speak out is Sharon Osbourne, 67, a co-host of the show “The Talk.” Taking to Instagram, the star wrote part of Martin Luther King’s quote stating: “At the center of nonviolence stands the principle of love.”

HOW FLOYD DIED

Floyd died after a policeman kneeled, for a prolonged time, on his neck while arresting him. Despite the victim pleading several times with the officer to remove his knee because he couldn’t breathe, the policeman ignored him leading to his death.

Since the marches and uprising have started, several celebrities have come out to show support to the Black Lives Matter movement in one way or another. Ellen DeGeneres voiced her support to the protests and pledged to donate to organizations.
