Madonna has shared multiple posts on Instagram supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, and has encouraged her followers to donate to the George Floyd Memorial Fund. Following Floyd’s death, Madonna posted an emotional response on Instagram. She wrote,
“Watching this Cop suffocate George Floyd with his knee on his neck, handcuffed and helpless, crying for his life with his face in the street is the most sickening, heartbreaking thing ive seen in a long time. This Officer knew he was being filmed and murdered him with arrogance and Pride. This has to stop!! Until we can over come Racism in America— no one should be allowed to carry a gun. Most of all cops. God Bless you George Floyd Im so sorry for you and your family. And all the senseless killings that have gone before you. Will it ever end? ?? I pray to GOD it does one day.”
