Billboard Music Award-Winning Travis Scott spoke out regarding the death of George Floyd by sharing a statement on Instagram on May 31, and he said that the police policy in United States cities needs to be changed and reformed.
With his real name Jacques Berman Webster, shared an art piece that depicts a Black barbershop, and added the following statement next this to call for justice:
“As I pace around, thinking, trying to find something to ease the pain… there are almost no words that I can think of to properly express, or I can use to suppress, this enraged feeling of us continuously losing our brothers and sisters to brutality at the hands of officers, or anyone with misguided intentions for our well-being.”
Travis continued by calling for accountability immediately and he demanded a police policy reform in the United States:
“The rage that we are all feeling is from direct personal experience and the constant pain of wanting our voices to be heard. To be seen as equal and human, too. We have to change and reform police policy in our U.S. cities, and there needs to be accountability immediately! Especially when officers abuse their power to the point where it callously takes a life.”
Then he concluded his words by expressing that he will do everything possible to support this case:
“My heart goes out to George Floyd’s family and everyone who’s suffered loss based on this type of senseless injustice and brutality. Me and the team are gonna do everything possible to make sure these issues are addressed on a long-term basis. Thank u Bun for picking me up this morning and helping me figure out ways I can really help move this forward. Love. See you all soon!”
