Rapper Killer Mike spoke out against the vandalism that took place at CNN’s Atlanta headquarters.
“I’d like to say to CNN right now, karma’s a mother,” Killer Mike said. “Stop feeding fear and anger every day. Stop making people feel so fearful. Give them hope.”
Protesters defaced CNN’s sign and building at its Atlanta headquarters amid ongoing protests outraged over the death of George Floyd, a black Minneapolis man who died earlier this week while in police custody.
Thousands hit the streets across the country on Friday, demanding justice for the four police officers involved with Floyd’s detainment.
Floyd died after white police officer Derek Chauvin restrained him by kneeling on his neck for nearly nine minutes. Floyd eventually went unconscious and ultimately died.
Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, but the three others involved have not yet been charged.
“I’m glad they only took down a side and defaced a sign and not killing human beings like that policeman did,” Killer Mike said.
