Floyd Mayweather has sent George Floyd’s family a check for $88,500 to cover the costs of his funeral services, TMZ reports.
George Floyd died last month after a police officer was filmed kneeling on his neck for several minutes till his death—the shocking footage has sparked a wave of protests around the world.
TMZ later reported Floyd’s family had accepted the offer, then posted a photo of the $88,500 check. Derek Chauvin, the 44-year-old Minneapolis police officer who kneeled on Floyd, has been arrested on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges.
