Beyonce encouraged her fans to remain “focused” in the fight for justice. “The world came together for George Floyd. We know there is a long road ahead. Let’s remain aligned and focused in our call for real justice,” the singer posted on Instagram. “We’re broken and we’re disgusted,” she said in a video on the social media site. “We cannot normalize this pain. I’m not only speaking to people of color. If you’re white, black, brown and anything in between, I’m sure you feel hopeless by the racism going on in America right now.”
Dwayne Johnson asks “where is our leader,” in a passionate video posted on social media. “Where are you? ” Johnson asks. “Where is our compassionate leader who’s going to step up to our country who’s down on its knees, and extend a hand and say, ‘You stand up, stand up with me because I got you. I hear you, I’m listening to you.” Johnson never mentions President Trump by name but it seems clear that he is talking about him in the video that has been viewed by more than one million people after only four hours on line.
