The girl who captured the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police is not in a good space right now and it’s all because of hate she’s receiving online.
Teenager Who Recorded The Viral Arrest Video Faces Online Backlash
The teenage girl who captured the death of George Floyd while he was being arrested by the Minneapolis police on video has spoken up abut the backlash she is facing online.
The 17-year-old Darnella Frazier says people have criticized her for not doing nothing more than shoot the encounter they say she should have done more to help George Floyd, like physically step in and intervene.
She took to her social media page to share;
I’m doing it for clout ?? For attention?? What ?? To get paid ?? Now y’all just sound dumb and ignorant!! I don’t expect anyone who wasn’t placed in my position to understand why and how I feel the way that I do !! MIND YOU I am a minor ! 17 years old , of course I’m not about to fight off a cop I’m SCARED wtf. I don’t give 2 fucks about what y’all would’ve did because was y’all there ?? NO. Fighting would’ve got someone else killed or in the same position George (may he Rest In Peace) was in ! If it wasn’t for me 4 cops would’ve still had their jobs , causing other problems.
My video went world wide for everyone to see and know !! His family was reached out to! The police most definitely would’ve swept it under the rug with a cover up story. Instead of bashing me , THANK ME! Because that could’ve been one of your loved ones and you would want to see the truth as well. Anyone with something negative to say pls block me. I’m not forcing you to watch me.
