The internet uncovered an old adult film starring an adult entertainer who closely resembles George Floyd, the 46-year-old Black man who was killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis in May.
Floyd, was under arrest for passing a $20 bill, asphyxiated after Derek Chauvin, 44, kneeled on his neck and back for nearly 9 minutes.
Widespread protests spread across America as thousands destroyed property, set police cars on fire and looted luxury shops.
While many honored Floyd with peaceful protests, others were determined to sully Floyd’s name by uncovering an old adult film featuring an actor named “Big Floyd.”
A still from the film was posted on Twitter, where clips from the film went viral over the weekend.
The actor has not been positively identified as Floyd.
Chauvin, the ex-cop was arrested and charged with killing Floyd, was moved to 2 different detention centers on the same day.
CBS station WCCO-TV reports Chauvin had previously been held at the Ramsey County Jail after being taken into custody in Minnesota.
On Sunday afternoon, he was transferred to the Hennepin County Jail. Just hours later, he was moved to a department of corrections facility in Oak Park Heights, WCCO reported.
During a press conference Sunday night, Commissioner of Corrections Paul Schnell said that Chauvin was moved partially due to COVID-19 concerns. But law enforcement sources say he was moved after threats on his life.
Chauvin is under suicide watch in jail.
