Watch: Ariana Grande & More Protest Over George Floyd's Death

Many celebrities aren't sitting around in silence any longer.

In the last few days, stars participated in nationwide protests to stand in solidarity with the Black community.

The protests across the United States were not only in response to George Floyd's death but also Breonna Taylor's death, Tony McDade's death, Ahmaud Arbery's death and so many others in recent months.

Among the celebrities protesting earlier in the week and over the weekend include Ariana Grande, Jamie Foxx, Halsey, Michael B. JordanTimothée Chalamet, Kendrick SampsonKehlani and countless others.

On Friday, Foxx attended the Minneapolis press conference and spoke to the crowd about Floyd's death—which occurred after a Minneapolis police officer pinned him down and kneeled on his neck, while three other officers stood by and did nothing.

In video footage captured by bystanders, Floyd told the officers that he couldn't breathe, and moments later he passed away.

Celebrities Speak Out in Response to George Floyd's Death

"I think that what you saw on television, to watch this man plead for his life," Foxx said on Friday. "As I sit with my two daughters, my nephews .. what it does is, it over-complicates everything as a Black man trying to tell his son or his daughter how to function in life. Even the things that we've taught them don't seem to work."

Orange Is the New Black actor Matt McGorry shared footage of Los Angeles protests on Instagram. "White people. It's time to show up, to get uncomfortable, to put our bodies and our resources on the line," he wrote.

Later he revealed on Twitter that he and Insecure star Kendrick Sampson had been shot at by cops. "LAPD shot me with a projectile when nobody was doing anything other than just standing there," Matt explained on Twitter. "They did way worse to the POC and especially Black folx there."
