“Between the Cops & the Coronavirus.... PLEASE stay safe.”

The outlet adds that the actress revealed that the idea to provide monetary support to the deceased’s family was led by her fellow castmate Cedric Yarbrough, who is from the state where the incident took place, Minneapolis.

The fatal event which reportedly occurred when George while in Police custody was pinned to the ground with a knee to his neck by a police officer identified as Derek Chauvin has made headlines since footage of the incident was released.

During her interview with “Good Morning America,” she revealed that she, as a mother of a black son, was scared and distraught by the widespread police brutality on African Americans.

Asides, having a black son, the actress also connects with the death of George Floyd following her deep insight into racism after she starred in the biographical miniseries “when they see us,” as reported by LA Times.

In the movie, which was centered on the Central Park Five, who were wrongfully accused and jailed for assaulting and raping a white female jogger in 1989, Niecy played the role of Deloris Wise, the mother of the youngest of the accused, Korey Wise.

The former “Clean House” host while using her break from television to encourage her fans has also been taking a much-required rest.

She revealed to Forbes that because of her busy schedule, she did not spend up to one month at a stretch in her new house, but with quarantine, she has had to.
