Video of George Floyd’s daughter saying ‘Daddy changed the world’ will leave you in tears | Watch
New Delhi | Jagran Trending Desk: George Floyd, the African-American man who was pinned to death by a police official in America's Minneapolis, has 'changed the world,' if his single digit aged daughter is to be believed.
In a tear-inducing video which has gone viral on social media, George's daughter Gianna, is sitting over the shoulder of her father's close friend and former NBA player, Stephen Jackson Sr. In the clip, when the person behind the camera asks Gianna, "Daddy did what?", Gianna responded back and said, "Daddy changed the world". Jackson, on whose shoulder Gianna was sitting also repeats after Gianna, "Daddy changed the world".
Taking to Instagram, Stephen Jackson posted the video and wrote, while sharing the video, "That’s right GiGi 'Daddy changed the world' George Floyd the name of change. #justiceforgeorgefloyd #ivehadenough Love to all who have love for all."
Several verified NBA players commented on the video with 'salute' and 'heartbroken' emoticons. "That's right babygirl. Your daddy is a hero and we will demand justice," one user commented. "Sending love her way, glad she knows his death meant something (sic)," wrote another user. Highlighting upon the pain, displayed even in the charmed up spirit of Gianna's another user wrote, "This is so heartbreaking, but yes baby he did. He will go down in the history books!!"
George Floyd became the latest victim of inter racial fault lines in the United States on May 25, sparking global outrage and pan-America protests and numerous violent confrontations between the demonstrators and the law enforcement authorities.
Protests first broke in Minneapolis, and then across the US, alleging police of being racially atrocious as the video of Floyd being pinned to unconsciousness by a White Police Officer, started making rounds on the social media and ended up making a wildly viral outreach.
