Michael Jordan joined countless athletes and celebrities Sunday in speaking out against police brutality, as protests and riots continue to engulf the country following the death of George Floyd.
“I am deeply saddened, truly pained and plain angry. I see and feel everyone’s pain, outrage and frustration,” the NBA legend said in a statement. “I stand with those who are calling out the ingrained racism and violence toward people of color in our country. We have had enough.”
Jordan, 57, mourned the death of Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died in Minneapolis after a white police officer, Derek Chauvin, pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck after Floyd was suspected of spending a counterfeit $20 bill. (NYPost)
