Detroit rapper Royce Da 5’9 is keeping tabs on organizations showing support for Black Lives Matter. The hip-hop veteran has reacted to a now-viral screenshot suggesting adult website Pornhub is contributing to the movement.

On Monday, Royce hit up Instagram to share an alleged announcement suggesting the site would only feature black women from June 6 to June 12. However, some people believe the Pornhub statement is fake.

High-Key Details

At least some positive change is coming following the death of black man George Floyd and global protests against police brutality. Minneapolis has agreed to ban police chokeholds after fired cops killed Floyd by kneeling on his neck.

The City Council held an emergency meeting on Friday and unanimously passed the new rules. The agreement still needs to be approved by a judge. “George Floyd’s service yesterday underscored that justice for George requires more than accountability for the man who killed him — it requires accountability from elected leadership to deep, structural reforms,” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said in a press release following the vote.

Wait, There’s More

Last Thursday, a huge video game franchise showed its support for Black Lives Matter and the life of George Floyd. Powerhouse company Rockstar’s biggest titles temporarily shut down in Floyd’s memory. The statement showed the company’s commitment to supporting Black Lives Matter around the globe and especially in the United States.

Before You Go

The shutdown time period coincided with memorial services taking place for Floyd. Various high-profile celebrities showed support and attended the live-streamed event in Minneapolis.

A somber and defiant memorial for George Floyd in Minneapolis gave way to a 10th night of protests on Thursday as thousands of demonstrators again poured into the nation’s streets, crowding outside City Hall in Seattle and marching across the Brooklyn Bridge. The Rev. Al Sharpton, who gave a eulogy for Mr. Floyd, pledged that his death would be a catalyst for change, after video showed a white police officer kneeling on Mr. Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes as he lay face down and handcuffed on the pavement, saying “I can’t breathe.” The tragedy, Mr. Sharpton said, was also a symbolic message: “Get your knee off our necks.” (New York Times)
