Kim Kardashian calls for justice for George Floyd, fans ask if Kanye West stopped supporting Trump
'For him (Kanye) to stay silent or even worse voice support for this MAGA mentality is unacceptable,' said a follower
Kim Kardashian has been vocal about her thoughts on George Floyd's death. The reality star took to her social media to express her disappointment over how things went. "For years, with every horrific murder of an innocent black man, woman or child, I have always tried to find the right words to express my condolences and outrage," she wrote.
She continued, "Even though I will never know the pain and suffering they have endured, or what it feels like to try to survive in a world plagued by systemic racism, I know I can use my own voice to help amplify those voices that have been muffled for too long." She urged people to join hands and make sure justice is served to Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor. Protests erupted all over the US after a video surfaced online that showed Floyd struggling to breathe as a police officer kept his knee on his neck.
Arbery's murder occurred weeks before this incident and the video showed two men shot him in daylight as he jogged in the park. While the men have been arrested, people had been upset about Floyd's death that followed weeks later. Meanwhile, Taylor was a 26-year-old African American woman who was fatally shot by the officers during a protest. Kardashian urged people to sign a petition and called for justice to be served. While some appreciated the reality star using her platform to bring attention, others wanted to know if her husband, Kanye West, had stopped supporting President Donald Trump.
Ever since these incidents took place, many people were quick to slam the Trump administration. West had been a vocal supporter of Trump and fans have not been pleased to hear this. Many were quick to ask the reality star about her West's support towards the President.
"Tell your husband to stop supporting Trump," wrote one user. "I want to support you, but your husband is one of the most influential black artists of our time. For him to stay silent or even worse voice support for this MAGA mentality is unacceptable. You can’t control him, but you don’t have to stand by him," read another comment.
"Why don’t you ask your husband to call his good friend T*ump to get him justice??" another questioned. "You and your husband support Donald Trump. Sit down," read another.
