From Rihanna to Harry Styles, Here Are All The Celebs Supporting the #BlackLivesMatter Movement

In the wake of the death of George Floyd, protests have broken out across all 50 states in the US and worldwide, calling for justice. This has led to widespread arrests, including in Minnesota, where Floyd, a black man, died after a white police officer knelt on his neck during an arrest.

To help arrested protestors in making bail and assist Black Lives Matterorganisations, some celebrities have not only been posting a black square on social media but they have been signing petitions and putting their money where their mouths are and donating to people in need.

1. Rihanna

Rihanna’s label announced it would be closing for business to honour Blackout Tuesday and stand in solidarity with the black community.

“This is not a day off. This is a day to reflect and find ways to make real change. This is a day to #PullUp,” the brand wrote in an IG post.

Fenty also revealed it would be making donations to two organisations: Color of Change and Movement for Black Lives.

2. Drake

Drake showed his generosity by donating $100,000 to the National Bail Out, which helps bail out black mothers and caregivers.

3. The Weeknd

The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) shared the receipt from his $100,000 contribution to the organization and proof that he also gave $200,000 to the Black Lives Matter Global Network.

The singer also donated an additional $200,000 to Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp.

4. Harry Styles

“I’m donating to help post bail for arrested organizers,” the singer, 26, tweeted. “Look inwards, educate yourself and others. LISTEN, READ, SHARE, DONATE and VOTE. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. BLACK LIVES MATTER.”

5. Huda Kattan

Beauty mogul and entrepreneur Huda Kattan is backing her calls for social equality with her money. Kattan, an American-Iraqi who is based in Dubai and has more than 44.3 million Instagram followers, also participated in the movement.

“At Huda Beauty we stand against racism today and always. In solidarity with the black community and the Black Lives Matter movement, we are pausing our regular content,” she wrote.
