How social media Influencers and companies are Responding to the #BlackLivesMatter Protests Across the US

As Black Lives Matter protests continue across the world in the wake of George Floyd’s death in the US, many brands, celebrities, and social media influencers are showing their support to Black and Indigenous communities through social media.

We can see Amanda Cerny along with Johannes Bartl are constantly participating in the protests.

The famous Tiktok Star Lele Pons also participated in the protest.

They say, “A black man was killed, but destroying these buildings has to stop.” Destroying these buildings is a problem but an innocent black man should never be killed by a cop They say, “Yo Bach you shouldn’t speak up you might lose some of your brand deals. My people have been dying to injustice for centuries I don’t give a damn how a brand feels. In my comments talking bout All Lives Matter. That’s because whenever you hear the word shoot it’s always followed by a ladder. COVID nineteen is what we were told to fear. 19 years a Minnesota cop, called a career. See that’s how long he was on the force, Before he killed George Floyd with no remorse. He put his knee on his neck without a worry or care, While big man Floyd was gasping for air. Cops go thru life with care and ease While one of my brothers pleads I can’t breathe. Quick to do the whoa and dance Savage on TikTok. But I been looking at your post you been silent so kick rocks. If you want people to believe that your active and woke. Then put your money where your mouth is and go out and vote. Im no longer trying to live on a hope and a prayer. The only way we can make real change is go and vote a good mayor. Names became hashtags and theirs deaths we could avoid. Say it loud I’m Black and I’m proud Rest In Peace George Floyd. #BlackLivesMatter Thanks to @dexterdarden and @saydaword for helping me with this

We’ve seen alot of social media companys like facebook, twitter, linkedin are totaly showing the support for the protests.
First off, Twitter has produced a range of resources and tips to help people understand the condition and the part that they can play in making a change.

Twitter has also updated its main profile to reflect its support for the protests.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has also allocated several new grants via his #StartSmall initiative to programs designed to address racial inequality.

LinkedIn is also using its various social media profiles to share perspectives from black employees, adding more context to the situation.

YouTube has also added its support while also pledging $1 million in funding to support organizations seeking to address injustice.

TikTok has pledged to establish a new creator diversity council. It’s allotting $3 million from its $250 million COVID-19 relief fund to non-profits that help the Black community, “which has been disproportionately affected by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Facebook and Instagram are also continuously supporting the protest.
