George Floyd family sues Kanye West

It has since been proven how George Floyd died: the African-American was murdered by a police officer on May 25, 2020 when he was arrested, and the agent was later convicted. Kanye West sees things differently, however. The American rapper is now being charged for his rude statements.
The mother of George Floyd’s daughter, Roxie Washington, has reportedly sued rapper Kanye West for $250 million. This is reported by, among others, the magazine ‘People’. The musician previously claimed that Floyd died of drug abuse and not police brutality.
The false statements apparently come from last Saturday. West, who now calls himself Ye, claimed on the Drink Champs podcast that Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose. The episode of the podcast has since been removed from YouTube, according to CNN.
George Floyd died on May 25, 2020 in Minneapolis. During an arrest, police officer Derek Chauvin killed the 46-year-old man lying on the ground by kneeling on his neck for more than nine minutes and, despite numerous pleas from Floyd, squeezing his breath until he died. Chauvin was later sentenced to more than 22 years in prison. Floyd’s death sparked worldwide protests against racially motivated police brutality under the slogan “Black Lives Matter”.
The family’s lawyers have now filed for an injunction against Kanye West. They therefore stated that George Floyd’s cause of death had been clarified by evidence in the criminal and civil proceedings. Despite this, West made “malicious statements that are inaccurate, unfounded and have caused harm to Mr. Floyd’s survivors.” According to media reports, Floyd’s daughter was traumatized by the rapper’s statements.
Kanye West is currently drawing attention with racist and anti-Semitic statements. He recently wore a shirt with the slogan “White Lives Matter” at a fashion show of his collection in Paris. The phrase is used in right-wing circles in response to “Black Lives Matter”. He was then briefly banned from social media platforms due to several anti-Semitic tweets and Instagram posts.
