in a rare social media video statement over the weekend, Beyonce demands justice for George Floyd. Just one of the many stars using their social media platforms to demand change in the wake of George Floyd brutal killing.

“There have been too many times that we’ve seen these violent killings and no consequences. Yes, someone’s been charged, but justice is far from being achieved,” Beyoncé continued. “Please sign the petition and continue to pray for peace, compassion and healing for our country.”

The singer directed her 147 million followers to four organizations that are seeking justice for Floyd: change.org, Color of Change, the NAACP and We Can’t Breathe. Fans can also text “FLOYD” to 55156.

Nearly 7.5 million people have already signed the “Justice for George Floyd” petition, making it the largest petition in the change.org‘s history.

Artists like Bajan beauty Rihanna similarly turned to social media Saturday to lament Floyd’s killing, while many in the music industry planned to make June 2nd “Black Out Tuesday.”
