The two music stars stated that black men were treated worse than their white counterparts who broke the law. According to The Mirror, following the outcry of George's death, the Minneapolis Police Department made it known that he resisted arrest leading up to his death.

However, footage was released showing that Floyd had not resisted arrest, and the officer in charge had him on the floor as he pinned him down with his knees on George's neck.
