Bethenny Frankel Reportedly Cries over Chaos in Wake of George Floyd's Death

Reality TV star, Bethenny Frankel, breaks down as she returns to New York City after a week of protests and demonstrations in response to George Floyd's death.

A week of violence and unrest is sure to take a toll on a city. This brought reality star, Bethenny to tears as she returned to New York.

The 49-year-old spoke about the amount of hate currently in the world as she noted the drastic change in the state of the city while she cried in the video, which she shared on her Instagram story.

Bethenny was shaken as she shared her thoughts while riding in what looked like the back of a car. Frankel also mentioned that she would not want her child to grow up within such conditions as she explained her current state. She said:

"I just don't want this world for my daughter... the hate in this world is so terrible that I'm paralyzed. Speechless…"

Bethenny's post on her Instagram story comes after the main post on her page last week, which included a picture of the late George Floyd.

The picture was accompanied by a lengthy caption that stated that anyone who has hate for people because of their skin color is rotten on the insides. Frankel also went to compare the race issues with the pandemic explaining that it was just as bad.

The national outrage follows the recent death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, as a result of a policeman's actions.

Other celebrities, including Ellen DeGeneres, Jamie Foxx, Marie Osmond, and star singer Jennifer Lopez have also reacted to the killing of George Floyd. Jennifer spoke out about the current problem with an Instagram post, which contained a video of late Martin Luther King Jr. who spoke out against racism. In the video caption, she wrote:

"How can anyone say they love this country and not do something when they see lives cut short because of the color of their skin…"

The national outrage follows the recent death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, as a result of a policeman's actions. The Policeman, Chauvin, and three other officers had detained and arrested George based on an allegation of spending a counterfeit Bill.

During the encounter, Chauvin placed his knee on Floyd's neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds, which resulted in death by asphyxiation according to the results of an independent autopsy.

This is what I look like most days. It’s not filtered. It’s not lit well. & right now, for the worst time in many lifetimes, for many people, life isn’t filtered. . Unemployment is at record numbers. People are holding signs saying, “will work for food,” domestic violence is up, people are losing their jobs at every economic level, the poor are getting poorer. People’s emotional states are in jeopardy, mental illness is exacerbated. It’s truly a catastrophic crisis inducing fear and anxiety and trauma. Will there be a silver lining? Is this a global reset? If so, from what & where to? . Will our world be as superficial and materialistic as it was before this wake up call? If we’re not surrounded by people who feel that this is a change in the world, then we may choose to surround ourselves with new people. . I’ve played my part in this process as much as anyone. . I long for the day when we took a photo, developed the film, and prayed for the best. It was authentic. It was us. It represented the truth and not false reality where it’s more important to show people how good our lives are than for them to actually be good. . I’ve lived during a time when turning a camera on ourselves for everyone to “look over here,” “look how great I look in a bikini” would be a narcissistic preposterous action. & I get it, this is me too. . The way I am happiest and most comfortable 90 percent of my time is not posting where, what & when I’m supposed to be posting, because it’s good for “my brand” & will get likes. This has become a “don’t hate the player, hate the game” scenario. & maybe I am a little tired of the game when watching people suffer with real world problems. . Maybe there is a world beyond fake filters, fake photos, fake lighting, fake eyelashes, fake hair, fake curves and body parts, fake contouring, fake lives & fake people. Maybe this experience will take us closer to that place. . I’ve lived on “reality tv” for over a decade, & that wasn’t reality. What people are facing right now, that’s reality, & it isn’t pretty. . If there is one thing Coronavirus has reminded us of is what is real and what is important because everything else is just filler. . #thisisme

The lawyers representing George's family have since called for a filing of a first-degree murder charge against Chauvin. He also faces lesser charges of murder and manslaughter.
