Celebrities Speak Out in Response to George Floyd's Death

Terrence, who called his brother a "peaceful motivator," also talked about the turn some protests have taken and if his family is concerned that will take away from the call for justice.

"I do feel like it's overshadowing what's going on because, like I said, he was about peace he was about unity...the things that's transpiring now, they may call it unity but it's destructive unity," Terrence said. "It's not what he was about. That's not what my brother was about."

"It's OK to be angry, but channel your anger to do something positive or make a change another way because we've been down this road already," Terrence continued. "The anger...damaging your hometown is not the way he'd want."
