A Trump supporter goes viral after filming former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin saying he should kneel “longer” on George Floyd’s neck. Popular Twitter account Fifty Shades of Whey uploaded the video on Sunday, November 15: “Trump supporter says Chauvin should kneel longer on George Floyd’s neck.”
The unidentified man was wearing a red “Trump 2020” visor. It was heard in the roughly 25-second clip of Floyd, an unarmed black man who died while in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in police custody, commenting on the May murder. Floyd’s death aroused global outrage after viewers’ footage showed Chauvin kneeling on his neck for nearly nine minutes as he pleaded for air.
“He should have done this longer,” the Trump supporter told the camera directly. It is not clear who is the source of the video.
Fifty Shades of Whey announced in a follow-up tweet that the man was “last seen” in “Million MAGA March”. According to the website, the event supporting the president took place in Washington, D.C., over the weekend.
