Madonna is not the only celebrity to be left in horror at Floyd’s death, with John Boyega saying on Twitter:
‘I hate racists with a passion. It’s very important at this time that we ignore ignorance. ‘That we ignore people who come through and try to make these situations what they’re not.
‘I’m not even apologising first of all, you lot better f**king believe that, there is no way that I have the opinion that there are no other forms of racism. Of course there are other forms of racism.’ John continued: ‘But, a black man was just murdered in cold blood in the street Stateside again, while saying that he can’t breathe. That’s a continuous cycle going on – although I don’t live in the States, I’m black. F**k that.
‘I’ll say it again, f**k you racist white people. I said what I said. If you don’t f**king like it, go suck a d*ck. It’s not about career, it’s not about money, a lot of people like to bring it up… all those things were part of my dream, were a part of working. That’s got nothing to do with how you treat people.’
