The death of George Floyd was met with reactions from around the globe. While many took to the streets in protests, others have voiced-out support for the ongoing peaceful protests.
In a recent Instagram video shared by Stephen Jackson, Floyd's six-year-old daughter, Gianna was seen speaking about her father's death. The touching video saw Gianna sitting on Jackson's shoulders as she passionately declared that her daddy's death had changed the world.
