The former roommates of George Floyd have blasted the Black Lives Matter (BLM) foundation as they claimed to not receive any help from it after the May 2020 tragedy. Radaronline.com reported that the shocking revelations were made by Alvin Manago and Theresa Scott in Candace Owens’ documentary.

The new documentary — ‘The Greatest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and the Rise of BLM’ — released on October 13, covers “Minneapolis and the violent, racially-divided aftermath that fueled BLM's global rise-and filled its coffers.” It also reportedly features Manago and Scott with whom Floyd lived for years before his sudden death.

Manago has reportedly said in the documentary: “He was a people person. A Bible was the only thing you’d see on his desk. I used to hear him reading that Bible out loud all the time.” The two men claimed that while sharing the place’s rent, they all also used to share bills of light and gas. But after the 46-year-old’s murder, Scott stated, “We would share everything — the rent, lights, gas. So when that happened to Floyd, everything fell back on me and Alvin.”

The two men also noted that though the BLM organization generated more than $90 million following Floyd’s death, they allegedly did not receive a single penny of help from the fund. “It’s like they used it … as a way of funding whatever their motivation was,” Manago mentioned.

Meanwhile, on October 14, several people took to Twitter to pay tribute to Floyd on what would have been his 49th birthday. A user tweeted, “Today George Floyd would have been 49 years old. His murder by a cop inspired an international uprising against police terror, that is still unresolved and still occurring in our community. Rest in Power.” The second user shared, “Today would’ve been George Floyd’s 49th birthday. I want to remember him for something that he loved–hoopin’. This is a picture of Floyd while playing college ball at South Florida State College, where he averaged a solid 14 per game (that’s not as easy as some of y’all think).”

The third user wrote, “George Floyd the hooper. George Floyd the football player. George Floyd the father. George Floyd the man who loved and smiled, that’s the Floyd I’m thinking about today. On his birthday, I want us to remember that he had a life before his life was taken via Police Terrorism.” “Say his name.🖐🏾⚖ George Floyd was born today in 1973. He was a loving son and father, a loyal brother, a loving partner, an outstanding athlete and so much more. He lived a complicated life like so many of us do. He wasn't a waste of life. His life mattered. Say. His. Name. 🔥💖,” the fourth user stated.
