This Tuesday, Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree unintentional homicide, third-degree homicide, and second-degree manslaughter for killing George Floyd final May. The conviction occurred almost a 12 months after Floyd’s dying, however seeing as 98.3 percent of murders by police from 2013-2020 resulted in no costs, many had been glad to lastly see Chauvin behind bars. Along with many different celebrities, Travis Scott was amongst these grateful for the sentencing.
Scott lately sat down for an interview with AP to debate his ideas surrounding the trial. Along with feeling “glad” that Floyd was in a position to get justice, Scott says he hopes the world can ultimately “get to a more balanced” place:
“I mean, we felt that we finally got justice toward some sh*t that was just very disgusting. For it to take so long to finally catch something like a verdict like this for the things that happen every day—even during the week of his trial, you’re seeing still it’s continuing—I’m glad that it’s justice for the Floyd family. Now that we can try to work forward to even just try to stop it, in a mass picture, you get what I’m saying? Trying to get to the next step where we can halt this attack, whether it’s from the police or any walking person and just try to get to a more balanced spot in the world. Because this sh*t, it’s just crazy.”
Along with Scott, different musicians who shared reactions to Chauvin’s conviction embody Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, Questlove, Mariah Carey, Common, and plenty of extra.
