Derek Chauvin, found guilty of the May 25, 2020, death of George Floyd, appeared in Hennepin County Courthouse in Minneapolis for his sentencing. On April 20, 2021, he was convicted for multiple charges — second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for the death of the African-American man.

For the sentencing on Friday, June 25, Chauvin came to the court in a grey suit and a blue surgical mask. He sat as the family members of Floyd read their victim impact statements. The former Minneapolis officer failed to show any remorse over last year’s death. He, however, appeared to look attentive and sometimes scared while people related to Floyd and prosecutors read their statements.

Twitter was also buzzing as the process in court began. While some were disgusted to see Chauvin’s remorseless face, some were wondering why he has not apologized for his action that killed Floyd. One user tweeted, “I'm thoroughly disgusted, watching Derek Chauvin's emotionless, remorseless face as the members of Floyd's family pour their hearts out.” The second one said, “Derek chauvin is emotionless, soul less. A sociopath. Do you agree?” A third user stated, “I’m in tears over these family impact statements. How Derek Chauvin can sit there emotionless is wild to me. #DerekChauvinSentencing #BlackLivesMatter.”

A person remarked, “I would b 1 of the family members that would b cursing him the hell out & probably hopping over that podium. Cause how ever this sentencing go Ima say & show how I it wnt get Floyd back but 2c a emotionless Derek chauvin really aggravates me #DerekChauvin.” Another person pointed out, “Every picture of Derek Chauvin I have seen and every time he is on camera in the courtroom he looks so callous. Just an emotionless human being that clearly feels no remorse. What a monster.” Another said, “derek chauvin’s face is emotionless and his eyes are cold. he is a ruthless killer and deserves to be behind bars for the rest of his miserable life. justice for george floyd.” 



However, later when Chauvin’s mother, Carolyn Pawlenty, read her statement, he seemed to look a little emotional. She said, “You sentence my son, you will also be sentencing me.” She also added, “I will always believe in your innocence.” However, she failed to address Floyd's family. His mother’s emotional speech did not melt the hearts of the people on the internet as a person tweeted, “I'm not sure, he sure loved having his knee on George's neck a whole hell of a lot.” The other one said, “So ma pawlenty... How about you allow philonese to lay on derek windpipe for over 9 minutes and feel philonese is a good man after.” Another said, “Said every serial killer's mother.” Another said, "I know, right? Every criminal's mother would say their baby is innocent and good person. Also, even the mother could not bring out emotion from Derek Chauvin. Dude's heart is dark & dead."
