Selena Gomez can’t ‘sit in silence’ amid protests

BANG! NEWS – Selena Gomez can’t “sit in silence” following the death of George Floyd.

The 27-year-old pop star has taken to social media to speak out about social injustice amid protests across cities in the United States (US) over Floyd’s recent death on the streets of Minneapolis.

Selena wrote on Instagram, “I have spent the last 24 hours just trying to process this all. Nothing anyone says can take back what has happened. But we can and must all make sure to take action.

“Too many black lives have been taken from us for far too long. They deserve better. They deserve to be heard. We all need to do better and not sit in silence as this injustice continues. #blacklivesmatter #justiceforgeorgefloyd #icantbreathe.”

Derek Chauvin and three other police officers were recently sacked after footage emerged of him kneeling on Floyd’s neck.

The ex-Minneapolis policeman was subsequently charged with murder.
