On Monday, May 25, 2020 night, Minnesota resident George Floyd, an African American man, died after a white police officer pinned his knee against Floyd's neck during an arrest, while he struggled for air and begged for his life.
As footage of the incident spread around the Internet, protests broke out in Minneapolis, resulting in many arrests in the city, and numerous celebrities have come forward, offering donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund - a nonprofit dedicated to bailing out low-income individuals.
On Thursday, a Twitter user announced that they'd donated $50 to the fund, urging followers to do the same.
After a long chain of announcements, Carell, Rogen, and Ben Schwartz all tweeted that they had "matched" the donation.
Many celebrities have made their opinions on the matter clear, with [Beyonce altering the homepage of her website to feature a picture of Floyd with the caption, "Rest in power George Floyd."
