Madonna Calls George Floyd Murder 'Most Sickening, Heartbreaking Thing I've Seen in a Long Time'

Yet another incident of police brutality against the black community surfaced on social media Tuesday (May 26), and the Internet is outraged, rallying in support of George Floyd.

The family attorney was arrested on Monday (May 25) on suspicion of forgery. In the viral clip, Floyd was unarmed and cried out that he couldn't breathe as an officer kneeled on his neck. He later died at the hospital.

Madonna is among the growing number of celebrities speaking out against the horrifying injustice. She shared the video to her Instagram page with the caption, "Watching this Cop suffocate George Floyd with his knee on his neck, handcuffed and helpless, crying for his life with his face in the street is the most sickening, heartbreaking thing ive seen in a long time."

"This Officer knew he was being filmed and murdered him with arrogance and Pride. This has to stop!! Until we can over come Racism in America— no one should be allowed to carry a gun. Most of all cops," she continued. "God Bless you George Floyd Im so sorry for you and your family. And all the senseless killings that have gone before you. Will it ever end?  I pray to GOD it does one day."

Until then—F--- The Police!" she concluded. "Yea I said it. Im not interested in being PC. Im interested in Justice."
