Celebrities pay bail of those arrested in protests for the death of George Floyd


The model Chrissy Teigen, and actors Seth Rogen, Mark Ruffalo, Steve Carell and Don Cheadle, among other celebrities made donations to foundations designed to pay the bail of persons arrested during the demonstrations in tens of cities of the united States, in protest at the death of the african-american George Floyd at the hands of a police officer in the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Teigen announced in their social networks would donate $100 thousand, a sum that then would be double. The model, businesswoman and figure of the tv reacted this way to a comment from the president, Donald Trump, who said Saturday night was “night MAGA (Make America Great Again)” in the White House. In fact the executive mansion was besieged that night by hundreds of individuals expressing a repudiation by the death of Floyd, and those who faced Secret Service agents.

“In honor of what caraj… to mean ‘magician night’ I’m going to donate $100 thousand to pay bail of protesters throughout the country.” Within A few minutes the model tweeted. “You may need a bit more of money: better to be $200 thousand.”

Other figures from the world of entertainment that have also donated money to pay bail of protesters were the movie stars Seth Rogen, Mark Ruffalo, Steve Carell and Don Cheadle, who made their donations to the entity, the Minnesota Freedom Fund. Also participated in a sort of chain of donations, the actor Patton Oswalt, actress and activist, Jameela Jamil, the singer-songwriter, James Blake, actress and model Yara Sahidi and singer-songwriter Janelle Monáe.
