In a shocking video clip, the star shares real footage of himself being detained by police in Los Angeles – for allegedly “matching the description” of a criminal.

Jaw-dropping parallels to the passing of George Floyd saw an officer kneel on the neck of the unarmed Black 32-year-old.

    I agree that they should be put on blast.. but in a side note.. the whole “google me” left a bad taste in my mouth..

      Why not if Google exonerates him? All’s fair in an emergency to prove one’s innocence. Cali cops are notorious for letting actresses they recognize/ like off the hook. Yet, male celebs are treated like a Mel Gibson with varying degrees of melanin.

    Shoulda imitated Jay-Z’s voice. Release guaranteed. 😊 On a serious note, why do these pudgy cops need to rest their knees on people? I mean, we praise our fave celebs for figuratively doing that to their lessers, but are cops afraid to stain their uniforms or something?!? Stained knees weren’t an issue when frolicking with George Michael in an LA restroom, eh? Ah, the 90’s.

    Its painfully sad to watch this,because it just shows how much value is placed on black lives regardless of your status,or physical demeanor( for those who argue that black people always appear combative). White Racists and practically white people in general put a premium on animals than their fellow humans who aren’t white.
