As reported by E! Online, the 62-year-old show host struggled to fight back the tears as she spoke about the current racial injustice plaguing the United States, in an emotional post on Facebook.

Singer Adele wasn't left out as she urged fans to be "righteously angered but be focused" in a heartfelt Instagram post addressing Floyd's demise.


With a somber look, DeGeneres admitted that although she had been posting her thoughts about Floyd's murder, she hasn't been able to speak directly about it as she didn't know what to say.

Explaining the reason for saying nothing, Ellen, she said that although she was "so sad and so angry," she was going to use her platform and voice even though people might not agree with it. Ellen, who described herself as a supporter of equality, demanded justice and real change with the words:

"People have gotten away with murder, and that's what 's happening. We've got to see fairness and justice for all, because right now this is not a fair world."


She concluded her touching message with a call to action urging people to who have felt like they were never heard to "send a whole bunch of love out there."

The Daily Mail notes that Ellen's message of justice comes a day after DeGeneres was called out by CNN's Don Lemon alongside other celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Jane Fonda, Drake, and others.

Lemon, during his segment on the news network, urged celebrities to speak out as Beyonce did instead of worrying about the image of their brands.


Closer Weekly reports that many Hollywood stars have thrown themselves into mourning over the death of Floyd, who was allegedly killed while being arrested in Minneapolis.

Some of them include Jamie Foxx, Marie Osmond, Kelly Ripa, and others who took to their social media platforms to protest racial injustice.

Singer Adele wasn't left out as ET Online notes that she urged fans to be "righteously angered but be focused" in a heartfelt Instagram post addressing Floyd's demise.

Big names in the sports and entertainment industry, such as Justin Bieber, Rihanna, George Clooney, Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus, Hugh Jackman, and Lebron James, also lent out their voices to demand change, per E! Online.
