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.
