George was choked to death by an on-duty Police officer by kneeling on the former’s neck. The very news had the citizens of the US fuming with rage, following which people have taken down the street to protest demanding justice for George. After the likes of Ariana Grande, Ben Affleck, and many others the latest to lend his solidarity in the protest is rapper Kanye West.
It was yesterday when Kanye West joined the protest in his hometown in Chicago. The protest was led by Chicago Public School. The rapper was sported donning a hoodie shirt teamed with face mask amid COVID-19. Kanye was also in news early today following his donation of $ 2 Million to charities associated with Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, the three recent black men, and women killed by police officers.
