Sherri Shepherd, Chris Evans, Porsha Williams & More React To Derek Chauvin’s Guilty Verdict: ‘Thank You Jesus For Justice’
Wednesday, Apr 21, 2021

Many rejoiced as former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty on three charges for the death of George Floyd last May. Less than a year ago, the world erupted when a viral video captured Chauvin kneeling on George Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds as he begged for his life. After the close of one of the most controversial and closely-watched cases in history, Oprah Winfrey, Chris Evans, Sherri Shepherd, Porsha Williams, Barack Obama, and more took to social media to rejoice the guilty verdict.

Oprah Winfrey felt “relieved” and cried “tears of joy” after the jury found Chauvin guilty. She also thanked Danielle Frazier, the teen who captured George Floyd’s death on video.

Barack Obama praised the jury for doing “the right thing,” and pledged to “stand with all those who are committed to guaranteeing every American the full measure of justice.”

Chris Evans emphasized the power of the word “Justice,” and sent love to George Floyd’s family and friends.

“A black mother’s prayers are different,” Dish Nation’s Sherri Shepherd shared in a heartfelt post about her son while Porsha Williams posted a video of George Floyd’s daughter saying “Dad changed the world.”

Kerry Washington—pleased with the guilty verdict—reminded people that there’s so much more work to do while Whoopi Goldberg reflected on the bittersweet victory.
