After George's death, the entire country embarked on protests amid the ongoing health crisis. Many celebrities lent their voices to the cause, and some even took to the streets to show their displeasure towards the racism inherent in the country.

With the ongoing protests, Gianna and her mother, Roxie Washington, have shared memories of the deceased via interviews.

They revealed while on TV that George was a family man who loved to engage with his daughter. The pair seemed to have a special bond and connected easily as a father and daughter should.

Derek Chauvin, the white cop who pressed tightly to George's neck with his knees, has been charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter.

The 6-year-old who also became popular on social media and the news after her dad's death has also been granted a full-ride scholarship into the Texas Southern University in Houston, in case she chooses to attend the school.

Gianna happens to be truly blessed, and her Instagram account, which is barely a week old, has over forty thousand followers.
