Kelly Clarkson, LL Cool J and Kacey Musgraves, among others, have expressed outrage on social media over a video of an elderly man who advanced towards police officers being shoved during a protest in Buffalo, New York, against the death of George Floyd in police custody.
“To every single cop in this video that walked by that poor man bleeding out of his head after he was OBVIOUSLY pushed, WHY ARE YOU A COP???!!!!! To all the great cops out there, CALL THESE SORRY EXCUSE FOR HUMANS OUT,” Clarkson wrote on Twitter.
LL Cool J also chimed in with a tweet saying, “THIS IS WHAT HE THINKS LAW & ORDER LOOKS LIKE…..” in an apparent reference to President Donald Trump’s pledge to be a “president of law and order.”
Musgraves posted the video clip on Twitter with a warning, “This is highly disturbing, unacceptable, and needs explaining @BPDAlerts An elderly man AND NOBODY HELPS HIM!? What the f**k.”
The country singer added that she called the Buffalo Police Department to demand the firing of Officer Aaron Torgalski, who seriously hurt the elderly man and wouldn’t help him.
“They told me to call Buffalo Police HQ about it instead. In case anyone feels as sickened as I do: (716) 851-4444,” Musgraves added.
“How many ‘bad apples’ just walked by that 75-year-old man on the ground so it wasn’t their responsibility to offer him medical aid?
The excessive force with impunity until a civilian or journalist catches you on camera,” tweeted Maren Morris.
