Singer Lady Gaga has released a statement on the death of George Floyd that is causing a stir on social media.
In her statement, Gaga makes a number of provocative claims, including claiming “Everyday people in America are racist, that’s a fact.”
Gaga also rips Trump, calls him a “fool” and accuses him of “fueling a system that is already rooted in racism.”

Lady Gaga has raised her profile in activism over the last year.
Last month, Lady Gaga heaped praise on the head of WHO while promoting her virtual benefit concert.
“Dr. Tedros, you’re truly a superstar,” Gaga said during the WHO’s daily briefing while promoting the virtual benefit concert “One World: Together at Home” for which she partnered with the WHO and Global Citizen.
“Thank you so much to the media for telling the stories of all of these medical professionals and getting the word out about how underresourced their systems are.”
