A heart-warming video has gone viral on several social media platforms showing a nine-year-old girl's emotional message following the death of George Floyd.
The little girl is visibly emotional as she stood up before thousands of people during the Black Lives Matter protest at the statehouse in Columbus, Ohio.
She condemned the killing of people of colour and said: "Black lives matter just as much as white lives."
The video was originally shared on TikTok but has since surfaced on other platforms like Twitter.
Social media user Alyssa shared the clip and captioned it:
"Yo, she is nine and she is doing more than most of y'all damn."
The video blew up online, gathering over 3.2 million views and social media users applauded her bravery.
Social media user, @praise4thwicked, commented:
"You can feel her pain. That’s the pain we’re feeling. That should be the pain all people should be feeling. I’m proud of her for standing up against what she knows is wrong."
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that US celebs, Madonna, Colin Kaepernick and Cardi B condemned George Floyd's killing as racist and discriminatory.
Colin said: “When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction. The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back!”
Many believe the killing was racially motivated as George was black and the officers involved were white.
Cardi B advised US citizens to use their vote wisely, so as to ensure they put people in power who will act decisively against such injustices.
Madonna posted a video, for which she was widely criticised, of her black adopted son dancing to Michael Jackson's They Don't Care About Us.
