While Kim Kardashian has been out and vocal about George Floyd’s killing and the Black Lives Matter movement, husband Kanye West has not spoken anything yet. Turns out Kanye has now donated $2M to charities associated with Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, the three recent black men, and women killed by police officers. Below is all you need to know.
It was recently when fans and netizens pointed out that, the rather outspoken Kanye West has been silent about killings of Floyd, Arbery, Taylor, and Tony McDade, a black Trans man in Tallahassee. A radio journalist Ebro Darden even mentioned that on his show, as reported.
Many tweets even spoke about his inclination and support to Donald Trump, which might have kept Kanye West from not backing the movement. Turns out the man has decided to let his action speak. According to Variety, apart from donating $2M to the charities associated with the several killing, Kanye has also pledged to cover legal costs for Arbery and Taylor families.
Not just that, Kanye West has set up a fund to cover Geroge Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter’s education. The Variety report also says that Kanye West has also decided to back black-owned ventures in his hometown and help them financially.
Meanwhile, Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian is going all out of her way to help anyone involved she can. She has contributed to bailing out protestors and is even looking after their medical bills. She even cleared her stand and support to Black Lives Matter within the starting days of the protest. Kim is being applauded for her active support.
