Dennis Rodman released a new video on Instagram called "Rest In Power George Floyd."
Dennis Rodman was always an extremely vocal player both on and off the court during his playing days. He has also proven himself to be engaged politically although not in the ways you might expect. Of course, we mean his relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un. Regardless, Rodman has a large platform, and last night, he spoke up about all of the protests going on throughout the United States.
In a video posted to Instagram called "Rest In Power George Floyd," Rodman spoke about the looting and rioting that is going on. While he wants justice for Floyd, he seems to be appalled by those causing destruction and said “we’re human beings, not f–king animals.”

“I think someone needs to come out and say, ‘Hey, guys, why are we looting? Why are we stealing? Why are we creating more issues, more problems?” Rodman said. “This is a bad, bad situation. But the fact that you’re gonna protest, protest in the right way. You don’t have to go and burn down things, steal things, burn things and stuff like that.”
Rodman's sentiments are ones that are shared by many although it is important to note that many of the people protesting are trying to stop the rioters. Numerous Twitter videos have shown Black Lives Matter supporters standing in front of businesses so that masked vandals don't break any windows.
As protests continue to rage throughout the country, we urge all of you to stay safe.
