Popular singer Jennifer Lopez is using her platform to protest against racial injustice in the country, and her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, is also joing in the quest.
Jennifer Lopez is joining lots of Americans in taking action to bring about a just America. Clad in a large, patterned black and white set, Lopez took to the streets of Los Angeles to protest the racial injustice in the country.
In a video she shared on her Instagram page, Lopez could be seen holding a large sign which had "BLM #ENOUGH IS ENOUGH" written on it in bold handwriting as she walked to support the cause.
The sign was designed by her adorable twin children, Emme and Max. She asked for her children's help making the sign after Max encouraged her to use her massive following to help the "Black Lives Matter" movement.
Lopez informed Max that she already had plans of doing just that and also educated him and Emme further on what the cause is all about. The trio spoke about how justice could exempt no one.
In the video caption, Lopez wrote: "...Max told me a few days ago: 'you know mom, since you have a following like some of my YouTuber gamers and they ask us to support things and we do, you should do that for George Floyd."
Just like Emme and Max, Lopez's partner, Alex Rodriguez, is also helping out. Rodriguez marched along the streets of Los Angeles with Lopez.
Rodriguez, who was spotted in an all-black ensemble during the peaceful protest, went further by speaking about the movement on his Instagram page just like his fiancée.
The other officers who were involved in the arrest of Floyd have been charged with aiding the crime.
In his post, Rodriguez mentioned how proud he was to walk alongside all the other protesters. He finished off by telling all of America that it was time to listen to the message that has been sent out for the past two weeks.
Rodriguez and Lopez are not the only celebrities who have supported the protests which have taken place so far.
Many others have joined, including Kanye West and singer, Ariana Grande, who was also a part of the protest in LOS ANGELES. Grande took to Twitter to share details about the rally. In her tweet, she wrote:
"... throughout Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, we chanted, people beeped, and cheered along. we were passionate…"
The recent protests across America and other parts of the world are being done in response to the death of George Floyd. Floyd died at the hands of a policeman, Derek Chauvin, who knelt on his neck for close to nine minutes after putting him in handcuffs.
Derek has now been charged with second-degree murder while the other officers who were involved in the arrest of Floyd have been charged with aiding the crime.
