Celebrities, including Cardi B, Cher, Chris Evans, Oprah and others shared their thoughts after the Minneapolis police office had been found guilty on all three counts

Derek Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter in the killing of George Floyd after a historic trial. The world, including Hollywood stars, reacted to Chauvin’s conviction on three counts on Tuesday, April 20.

“But this fight for justice is not over. We have a lot of work to do," wrote Kerry Washington on Twitter. "Prayers and love to the family of #GeorgeFloyd."

"Hallelujah!!!!!!!!" wrote Carey. “A beginning.. a small grain of hope for our future." Cardi B tweeted, "History." 




"And this isn't even a celebration. #GeorgeFloyd was still murdered before our eyes. He's gone. His family will never be made whole," wrote Yvette-Nicole Brown. 




“I cried tears of joy as each verdict was read. I’m grateful to the witnesses and their testimonies. Grateful to Darnella Frazier,” said Oprah Winfrey. “Grateful to every juror for seeing and acknowledging what the world saw on that tape. Thank you God for real!”

Darnella Frazier is the young woman who captured Floyd’s murder on camera.



“I hate that we have to celebrate something like this,” NBA player Jordan Bell tweeted, “but justice isn’t something we are used to in this country.”
