Tiffany Haddish is one of the celebrities who attended a memorial for George Floyd on Thursday in Minnesota, and while some wanted to focus on how upset she made them, Haddish wanted them to focus on Floyd and police brutality.
Besides Haddish, other celebrities who attended the memorial service included Kevin Hart, T.I., and Ludacris.
I was blessed and honored to be asked to attend the memorial service of George Floyd, our brother, who was murdered, which led us to this moment.”
Haddish was called up by Sharpton toward the end of the memorial service to stand on stage for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the same amount of time that Chauvin drove his knee into Floyd’s neck.
There will be other memorial services for Floyd in the coming days like the one that took place June 6 in his birthplace of Raeford, North Carolina and Houston, where he grew up.
