46-year-old African American Floyd lost his life because of police officer Derek Chauvin pressing the knee around his neck and waiting for minutes. This brutal police brutality led to major protests around the US (and beyond its borders). Garlinghouse admits the suffering of people and those who have been subjected to racist attacks, although he does not “fully understand” this situation because he did not personally experience it, he says that these communities are in solidarity with those who fight for their lives.
