The recent killing of African-America man George Floyd by a white policeman has sent the United States of America in a state of unrest. The news of the demise of Floyd took over social media on May 25, 2020, due to a video that went viral where a policeman can be seen kneeling on his neck for more than 5 minutes during an arrest while he lay handcuffed and crying out in pain about being unable to breathe.
In addition to the pandemic, protests have been going all over the country owing to this police brutality. Along with renowned celebrities, many high-end fashion labels have joined forces and showed their support to the ongoing ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.
