Many Hollywood celebrities aren't sitting around in silence any longer.

A number of A-list stars, like Ariana Grande and Halsey, have protested alongside civilians and activists since the death of George Floyd last week.

Floyd, an unarmed 46-year-old black man in Minneapolis, died in police custody on May 25.

The video of Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, pinning Floyd to the ground with a knee on his neck, while Floyd repeatedly saying he could not breathe, has sparked Black Lives Matter protests around the country. 

While some protests turned violent with excessive looting and arrests, others remained peaceful, with several celebrities choosing to march on the streets in solidarity with others to demand further justice for Floyd’s death.

Here’s what it’s been like:
