In keeping with the need for justice for individuals of color, a volley of Hollywood celebrities joined in to decry the blood-curdling murder of George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, who was killed while being in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department on May 25.

The world woke up to a ghastly visual -- a now-ousted White police officer was photographed pinning Floyd to the ground with a knee on his neck. The consequences of the act bore catastrophic dividends -- The Minneapolis's third precinct was set ablaze, followed by looting and instances of vandalizations.

Thinking along similar lines, scores of celebs made use of their reach through their platforms and pointed out to one thing -- Black Lives Matter, and there’s a dire need to put an end to police brutality.

“We need justice for George Floyd. We all witnessed his murder in broad daylight. We’re broken and we’re disgusted. We cannot normalize this pain,” said Beyonce, in an impassioned video message to her fans on social media. “There have been too many times that we’ve seen these violent killings and no consequences. Yes, somebody’s been charged but justice is far from being achieved. Please sign a petition and continue to pray for peace, love, and compassion for our country,” added the “Crazy in Love” singer.  

Urging the youth to play an active role in combating racism, Oprah Winfrey stressed on the need to be proactive.  “Those of us who have the ability to be seen or heard in our lives -- whether you are Black or white, Asian or Hispanic -- it is incumbent on all of us to not just be outraged when we see injustice,” said Winfrey in the latest edition of her “Oprah’s Your Life in Focus: A Vision Forward -- Live Virtual Experience.”

“It's not enough to just say 'It's so terrible.' We can't tolerate hate crimes perpetrated by authorities in this country. We need to speak up and say 'That will not happen on my watch.' We're going to do the work that it takes to dismantle in our own way,” she added.

Stressing upon the need for people to actively push for change, irrespective of their privilege, Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to share details about where to donate and what must be done in order to bring forth a change in the system.

In a powerful post, singer Selena Gomez gleaned advice to fans to “take action.” “I have spent the last 24 hours just trying to process this all. Nothing anyone says can take back what has happened. But we can and must all make sure to take action. Too many black lives have been taken from us for far too long. They deserve better. They deserve to be heard. We all need to do better and not sit in silence as this injustice continues,” Gomez wrote in a post.
