NBA Legend Micheal Jordan ‘Angry’ And ‘Sad’ As He Reacts To George Floyds Death

NBA legend Michael Jordan has released a statement expressing his grief and outrage over the death of George Floyd.

Floyd died last Monday in Minneapolis after a white police officer Derek Chauvin pinned his knee on his neck for several minutes as he pleaded that he couldn’t breathe. On Friday, Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter over Floyd’s death. 

In the statement issued on Sunday night, Michael Jordan, a six-time NBA champion and owner of the Charlotte Hornets said he understands the outrage over Floyd’s death and admitted that he is deeply saddened and plain angry over the situation. He also disclosed that he stands with those calling out the ‘ingrained racism and violence toward people of color’ in the US. 

With protesters taking to the streets across the United States again Sunday, Jordan released a statement on Floyd and the killings of black people at the hands of police.
