Celebrities are voicing their opinions on the ongoing protests in the U.S. that are being carried out throughout the country after the death of George Floyd. The protests have forced the Hollywood stars to come out and demand justice for all those who have been a victim of police brutality.

The latest celebrity to join the movement is supermodel Bella Hadid. The 23-year-old model took to Instagram to voice her sympathy for Floyd. She also urged her followers to “unfollow” her if they disagree with her point of view.

In her message, Hadid noted that she is educating herself about the matter to understand the seriousness of the issue. She also claimed that she has been making donations to help the people who have been affected by dangerous situations in various parts of the country.

“I’ve been sitting here listening. Understanding. Educating myself. Making calls to demand justice. Donating. And reaching out to friends just in case they feel hurt or lost this week,” Hadid wrote.

Later in her post, the former Victoria’s Secret Angel advised her fans to unfollow her if they believe that she is doing wrong by standing with the “black community.”

“If you are not standing in solidarity with the black community TODAY and EVERYDAY. Please unfollow me,” Hadid wrote.

She also revealed that she will be donating money to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), which protects the livelihood of African Americans. Hadid ended her post by urging people to keep putting pressure on the authorities to impose strict punishment to the police officers who were responsible for Floyd’s death.

“Partial justice is not justice at all--until all of the officers involved in the brutal murder of George Floyd are arrested, we will keep the pressure on,” Hadid wrote.

The news comes hours after a plethora of celebrities donated money to the Minnesota Freedom Fund to bail out the protestors who been arrested.

Chrissy Teigen gave $200,000, prompting Steve Carell, Seth Rogen, Ben Schwartz, Don Cheadle, Jameela Jamil, and many more to also give donations to the cause.

As of late, the police officer directly involved in Floyd’s death has been arrested and charged with third-degree murder.

Meanwhile, three other police officers who were also present at the scene have been fired from their respective positions.
