Two weeks have passed since the murder of George Floyd, an African American man of 46 years that was submitted by a police officer in Minneapolis, and since then, the demonstrations and protests against the racism systemic in the United States have been stepping up more and more.
It is for this reason that various celebrities have opted to use their media power to join the protests and raise their voice to demand a change in the supposed “land of the free” that, unfortunately, in the last few weeks has been terminated for violating the freedom of millions of citizens.
Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande and more celebrities who have joined the protests
Between the celebrities that decided to use the power of their respective platforms and have taken to the streets to put aside their “privilege” and join the movement “Black Lives Matter” are Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Halsey, Yungblud, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, Machine Gun Kelly, Sophie Turner, and Joe Jonas, Michael B. Jordan and Cole Sprouse just to name a few.
Here we leave some of the moments shared by the already mentioned celebrities through social networks:
Halsey and Yungblud took to the streets to offer medical assistance to all those who were injured during the protests. “Peaceful demonstrators were fired and threw tear gas and physical assaults without a break. Do you think that is not happening, are just the “thugs” and the “riots”, right? The police keep you safe, right? You’re wrong.” said Halsey via Instagram.
By your side, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes were captured in a peaceful protest in Miami, while Billie Eilish was captured by joining a demonstration in Los Angeles.
