On Friday (June 26), hundreds and thousands of people across the United States and the world tuned in to Derek Chauvin's sentencing. The former Minneapolis cop who is responsible for the death of George Floyd, which was one of the titular cases of racialized police violence that sparked mass protests across the country, received a 22 1/2 sentence after being found guilty on all three charges. 

Reactions to his sentence were polarized. While some applauded prosecutors for making sure justice was secured for George Floyd, others criticized the brief 22-year sentence Chauvin received for murder. One such critic is Boosie Badazz, who took to Twitter to make it clear he did not agree with Chauvin's sentencing.

Elsewhere, Beyoncé and Solange Knowles mother Tina Knowles-Lawson spoke out about her disappointment with the amount of jail time given to Derek Chauvin during Friday's sentencing hearing. "Very Disappointing!!" wrote the 67-year-old fashion designer on Instagram.

"My Godson was sentenced to 20 years for 2 ounces of marijuana he has been In Jail for 11 years. This man convicted of three charges He Murdered This man on TV before the world. And will only serve 15 ! The system has to change!" she finished.
