US reality TV star Kim Kardashian shared her anger over the killing of Afro-American George Floyd in Minnesota saying that she was ‘infuriated and disgusted’.
In a series of tweets, Keeping Up With The Kardashians star said, “For years, with every horrific murder of an innocent black man, woman, or child, I have always tried to find the right words to express my condolences and outrage.”
“But the privilege I am afforded by the color of my skin has often left me feeling like this is not a fight that I can truly take on as my own. Not today, not anymore. Like so many of you, I am angry. I am more than angry. I am infuriated and I am disgusted,” she tweeted.
Kim Kardashian went on to say, “I am exhausted by the heartbreak I feel seeing mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and children suffering because their loved one was murdered or locked away unjustly for being black.”
“Even though I will never know the pain and suffering they have endured, or what it feels like to try to survive in a world plagued by systemic racism, I know I can use my own voice to help amplify those voices that have been muffled for too long,” Kim Kardashian added.
Before signing off, Kim demanded justice for George Floyd with hashtag “Black Lives Matters and Justice For George Floyd”.
