The mother of George Floyd‘s 6-year-old daughter Gianna is addressing the nation, one week after his death.
She continued, “At the end of the day, they get to go home and be with their families. Gianna does not have a father. He will never see her grown up, graduate. He will never walk her down the aisle. If there’s a problem and she needs a dad, she does not have that anymore.”
“I’m here for my baby and I’m here for George because I want justice for him. I want justice for him because he was good no matter what anybody thinks. This is the proof. He was a good man,” she concluded her message before walking off in tears.
George Floyd died on May 25 while under arrest by former police officer Derek Chauvin. Chauvin is facing third-degree murder and manslaughter charges. He and three officers were fired for their involvement in Floyd’s detainment.
“E! stands in solidarity with the black community against systemic racism and oppression experienced every day in America,” the network said in a statement on May 31. “We owe it to our black staff, talent, production partners and viewers to demand change and accountability. To be silent is to be complicit. #BlackLivesMatter.”
