Kanye West has donated $2 million to the families of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.
The Bound 2 rapper has given the hefty donation to the loved ones of the three victims – who were killed just because of the colour of their skin – as well as setting up a 529 college plan and covering college tuition for Floyd’s six-year-old daughter, Gianna.
West will also donate to businesses in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois owned by black businessmen and women.
West and his wife Kim Kardashian have been supporting a number of people connected with the Black Lives Matter protests.
Kardashian offered to pay the medical bills of a protestor who lost a “chunk” of their forehead when they were hit by a rubber bullet.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star uploaded a post to her Instagram Story, which read: “A rubber bullet fired by cops forever disfigures this teenage high school girl at a PEACEFUL Minneapolis protest yesterday. A bloody chunk of her forehead fell off. She was shot at point blank.”
And the 38-year-old reality star added her own text beside the post, writing: “This is heartbreaking and so disturbing. Does anyone know how I can get in contact with her? I would love to help with her medical care if she needs it.”
Kardashian also recently spoke out about the death of Floyd on her Instagram account.
She wrote: “For years, with every horrific murder of an innocent black man, woman, or child, I have always tried to find the right words to express my condolences and outrage, but the privilege I am afforded by the color of my skin has often let me feeling like this is not a fight that I can truly take on my own. Not today, not anymore. Like so many of you, I am angry. I am more than angry. I am infuriated and I am disgusted. I am exhausted by the heartbreak I feel seeing mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and children suffering because their loved one was murdered or locked away unjustly for being black. (sic)”
