Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and More Take Stand Against Racism After Death of George Floyd


While protests continue across the country over the death of George Floyd, media companies are making statements about racism in the country.

Demonstrations across the nation have escalated due to the death of George Floyd, a black man who was pinned down by a white officer.

YouTube is among the platforms taking a stand against racism. While expressing its opinion, the company has pledged a large donation of $1,000,000 to address social injustice.

"We stand in solidarity against racism and violence," their Twitter post said.

Entertainment Weekly reported that Netflix also expressed their support for the black community.

"To be silent is to be complicit. Black lives matter. We have a platform, and we have a duty to our Black members, employees, creators, and talent to speak up," the statement from Netflix said.

Hulu shared their support on social media. Their Twitter post reads, “We support Black lives. Today, and every day. You are seen. You are heard. And we are with you.”

Amazon Prime released a message of support on how the company stands with the black community as well.

Other companies showing their support include HBO, Viacom, Pop TV, Quibi, and more.

Bratz doll-maker MGA Entertainment Inc. showed solidarity like many companies.

The famous fashion dolls maker shared a post on Instagram that shared the company's heartbreak for George Floyd and the black community.

Bratz captioned its photo, "Make your voice heard."

The photo continued to explain how the company will always strive for inclusivity, adding an aspect of diversity to their dolls.

"It is all of our responsibility to take a stand against racism, and we can't call ourselves inclusive while staying silent about these social injustices right in front of us," the statement read.
