Batista and Titus O’Neil Comment On Death Of George Floyd At The Hands Of Minnesota Police

WWE Hall of Famer Dave Bautista (Batista) and WWE Ambassador Titus O’Neil both took to Instagram this morning to comment on the death of 46-year old George Floyd, who was killed at the hands of Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin. Chauvin placed his knee over Floyd’s neck while in custody, with Floyd screaming that he can’t breath. He would die shortly after.

Batista writes, “I’m not OK with this. I recorded this yesterday out of anger and frustration but it didn’t load correctly. I feel like it’s still my responsibility as a human being to post this. I’m sure a lot of people will be able to relate. No comments necessary. Just sending love to my fellow human beings who are also angry and frustrated and not sure where to direct it.”

Meanwhile O’Neil shared a photo of his sons, claiming that the incident left him in fear as he worries for the lives of his family.

I’m literally sitting in my car looking at pictures of me and my sons and just came to tears. As a black father this shit is frustrating, hurtful, Scary etc, I’ve been able to teach my kids a lot about life but I’m not equipped to teach or tell my kids or other black and brown kids on how to deal with Type of shit OVER AND OVER AGAIN🤬🤬🤬I doubt very seriously that my Friends, Coworkers, business partners etc that don’t look like me have EVER had to think about half the stuff I do as a Black Parent trying to Raise two Black Men in this country. I doubt they’ve ever had to Have “The Talk” with their children, I doubt they’ll ever Have to tell their children how beautiful and Amazing they are as much as I tell mine, I doubt they’ll have to wonder if their kids will be okay with driving their cars outside of getting into an accident , I doubt they have to go shopping for Body cameras to install in their kids vehicles, I have a lot of doubts, Concerns, Anger, Frustration and Questions….WHAT I DON’T have is ANSWERS and That’s where many Black and Brown people are at today and have been for years. I can’t explain to them that the outrage people have for hurting Dogs and Animals is deafening, yet the outrage for Killing Black Men and women with A Law enforcement Uniform on seems to be addressed as business as usual. I don’t feel like a SuperHero, I don’t have any answers and I do feel hopeless in this situation.

Chauvin, as well as several other officers involved, have since been fired. The case is currently under investigation from the FBI. Check out Bautista and O’Neil’s posts below.
