As tensions between protestors and law enforcement build in the wake of George Floyd's death, Lady Gaga is offering some words of encouragement to those who remain angry and frustrated.
Gaga, who recently dropped her new album, Chromatica, took to social media Saturday night (May 30) to share her thoughts about the death of Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer. In her lengthy post, the singer encouraged support for the black community and criticized President Trump's handling of racial tension during his time in office.
"Right now is a critical time for the black community to be supported by all other communities so we can put a stop to something that is intrinsically wrong by the grace of God or whatever creator you do or do not believe in," Gaga wrote on Instagram. "I urge people to speak gently to each other, speak with passion, inspiration, and impress the importance of this issue until the systems that keep us sick die, instead of people we love."
