Celebrities Use Their Voices To Speak Out Against Racial Injustice
Some are calling for action on social media while others are donating bail money for protesters who've been arrested.
As people across the world come together to protest the death of George Floyd and police brutality, celebrities are joining in with rallying cries of their own.
"If you're white, black, brown, or anything in between, I'm sure you feel hopeless by the racism going on in America right now. No more senseless killings of human beings. No more seeing people of color as less than human. We can no longer look away," Beyoncé said in an Instagram video.
"We're not afraid to stand. We're not afraid to stand. We're not afraid of the moment," Jamie Foxx said during a news conference in Minnesota.
"It's not enough to just say 'It's so terrible.' We can't tolerate hate crimes perpetrated by authorities in this country. We need to speak up and say 'That will not happen on my watch,'" Oprah Winfrey said.
"That's not enough to just say 'It's so terrible.' We can't tolerate hate crimes perpetrated by anybody, by authorities or anybody in this country. And until we're all willing to speak up and say 'That will not happen on my watch,'" Oprah Winfrey said.
"This is our America!"
And some, like Halsey, Timothée Chalamet, Tessa Thompson and Nick Cannon, joined protesters over the weekend and documented their experiences online.
Athletes are speaking out, too. Serena Williams and other current and former tennis players protested racism in a challenge called "Racquets Down, Hands Up."
Basketball superstar Michael Jordan urged the public to stand together, saying, "Every one of us needs to be part of the solution, and work together to ensure justice for all."
And European soccer player Jadon Sancho revealed the message "Justice for George Floyd" written on his shirt after scoring a goal Sunday.
