The death of George Floyd while being under police custody in broad daylight has created public outcry all over the world. People have been protesting against the police brutality, racial discrimination and all other heinous crimes that led to the loss of lives like that of Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and many other victims. A day back, the entertainment industry observed ‘Blackout Tuesday’ in solidarity with the protests against George Floyd’s death on May 25, 2020 in Minneapolis.

Many well-known celebs have taken part in what has now been called the Black Lives Matter movement. This includes sharing a plain black image on social media along with the captions #BlackLivesMatter and #BlackoutTuesday. International singers like Taylor Swift and Rihanna have extended their support towards the movement. The latter writes, “We are not staying silent and we are not standing by. The fight against racial inequality, injustice, and straight up racism doesn’t stop with financial donations and words of support. In solidarity with the Black community, our employees, our friends, our families, and our colleagues across industries we are proud to take part in #BlackoutTuesday.”
