Adele Speaks Out About George Floyd's Death in Powerful, Emotional Instagram

Adele is not staying silent on George Floyd‘s death.

The 32-year-old musician headed back to Instagram for her post, and called for the movement against police violence not to get “disheartened, hijacked or manipulated right now.”

“George Floyd’s murder has sent shockwaves around the world, there are countless others that haven’t. Protests and marches are happening all over the globe simultaneously and only gaining momentum,” Adele started, alongside a picture of him. “So be righteously angered but be focused! Keep listening, keep asking and keep learning!”

She went on, “It’s important we don’t get disheartened, hijacked or manipulated right now. This is about systematic racism, this is about police violence and it’s about inequality. And this isn’t only about America! Racism is alive and well everywhere.”

“I wholeheartedly stand in solidarity with the fight for freedom, liberation and justice ♥️.”

Adele‘s posts follow countless other celebrities breaking their silence after a weekend of protests, anger, and frustration.
