After announcing his donation, the 43-year-old clarified his intentions:

The Black Lives Matter movement has been a mainstream topic since George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, was killed in Minneapolis police custody May 25. Floyd was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital after since-fired officer Derek Chauvin knelt on the back of his neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds.

Chauvin has been charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao, the other three officers involved in Floyd’s arrest, were charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and┬áaiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.

There have been protests across the world, including all 50 United States, demanding reform related to police brutality and racial injustice.
