Singer and actress Barbra Streisand helped George Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter, an African-American man killed by Minneapolis police officers in late May during an arrest, become a Disney shareholder.
Gianna Floyd posted on Instagram a photo in which she appears holding the shareholder certificate, along with the message: “Thank you, Barbra Streisand, for my package. Now I’m a Disney shareholder thanks to you. ”
The artist also offered Gianna two copies of her albums “My Name Is Barbra” (1965) and “Color Me Barbra” (1966).
Currently, Disney shares cost $ 115, and before the pandemic, they cost between $ 140 and $ 150. It is not known how many shares Gianna Floyd received.
She also received financial support from Kanye West, who initiated a fund for the girl’s education, and Texas Southern University offered her a full scholarship if she chooses to take college.
Following the death of George Floyd on May 25, protests against abuses by US police took place and continue in the United States, and demonstrations of solidarity have taken place in other countries.
