Once again, Hollywood has decided to weigh in where it shouldn’t and this time, many celebrities are attempting to “help” by bailing out protesters who were jailed during the ongoing riots that sprang up due to the unjust murder of George Floyd.
According to the Washington Examiner, everyone from Justin Timberlake to Steve Carell have pledged to donate money to an organization dedicated to bailing out these “protesters”:
Roughly 4,000 people have been arrested since demonstrations broke out in major cities across the country in the wake of Floyd’s death.
Among the peaceful demonstrations, usually after dark, have been widespread looting, vandalism, and arson. Local police in dozens of cities have said they suspected people from outside their areas had infiltrated Black Lives Matter protests with the intent of being violent and causing further harm.
Over the weekend, Attorney General William Barr blamed some of the violence on antifa, a rising left-wing group responsible for similar rioting in American cities in recent years.
Several other celebrities have pledged to help bail arrested protesters out of jail, including Steve Carell and Seth Rogen.
