George Floyd's Family Files $250 Million Lawsuit Against Kanye West


Last week Kanye West upset his dwindling fan base after spouting misinformation about the murder George Floyd, claiming he actually died from a fentanyl overdose, rather than the cop kneeling on his neck for 9 minutes and 30 seconds [click here if you missed that]. 

Now the family of George Floyd has filed a $250 million lawsuit against Yeezy... 

From NPR
The family of George Floyd announced Tuesday that they will file a $250 million lawsuit against Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, following comments he made about Floyd's death on the podcast Drink Champs.
Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office ruled that George Floyd's death was a homicide, caused by Derek Chauvin kneeling on Floyd's neck for over eight minutes. But Ye — who was a guest on last weekend's episode of the podcast hosted by rapper N.O.R.E and DJ EFN — put forth the idea that it wasn't Chauvin who caused Floyd's death, but that he died from fentanyl use.
The lawsuit will be filed by Roxie Washington, the mother of Gianna Floyd: George Floyd's only daughter and the sole beneficiary of his estate. Washington plans to sue Ye, his business partners and associates for "harassment, misappropriation, defamation and infliction of emotional distress seeking $250 million dollars in damages," according to a statement from Washington's attorneys.
"Kanye's comments are a repugnant attempt to discount George Floyd's life and to profit from his inhumane death," said Attorney Pat D. Dixon III. "We will hold Mr. West accountable for his flagrant remarks against Mr. Floyd's legacy."
Attorneys for the family have also issued a cease-and-desist letter to Ye for his comments.
"Free Speech Rights do not include harassment, lies, misrepresentation, and the misappropriation of George Floyd's legacy. Some words have consequences and Mr. West will be made to understand that," said Kay Harper Williams, another of Washington's attorneys.

Good. Needs to be more.

KKK Kanye is a SELLOUT said...

They won't win. He only said it once publicly and it's his opinion. He's entitled to be wrong. However he has kept saying the Kardashians kidnapped his child every other day, now that's defamation. He said Louis Vuitton killed Virgil a few times, that's defamation.

Sounds like a cover up cause this IS NOT THE FIRST TIME I HEARD THIS … and if they really want to push it let’s get a real FORENSIC person that proves Kanye’s and OTHER opinion which I believe myself …

Good luck with that. Kanye lost everything in the divorce. He was never a billionaire, and he is BROKE.

The reality family is leaking to the media what I have been telling you for quite some time. The A list rapper has no money. It is all smoke and mirrors. The only thing he has that is worth anything are several very high dollar life insurance policies. Kardashians/Kanye "Ye" West (Kanye West Is Legally Settling Divorce With Kim Kardashian)

Can anyone be sued for suggesting that his mother might be alive if she hired a chef and a trainer instead of a surgeon? That she may have tried to take an easy route instead of putting in the hard work because she had access to money? Correct? Anyone agree? Should someone call into a radio show and state this publicly? Would he appreciate that?

It's long past the time for this quisling to be cancelled. I been said he was a fraud from day one, from having ghost writers, to being closeted male which is where majority of his issues stem from, he should have come twirling out the closet years ago, and married Richid Tishi his one true love. Everything about this fool is a fraud, his hideous zombie apocalypse homeless couture, fisherman boots. Ugh I have wasted too much of my precious energy coming on this dead eye fool.

^^^^^ I agree. Half of Kanye’s mental issues stem from being closeted and afraid of his rap friends loosing respect for him! He married a kardasian cause she was crazy enough to believe whatever he said. That’s why you can’t trust these Blk males who marry white women…they handing something

Haven't the Floyd family received enough money? Did they receive any money from BLM?

Ye is not a sane person and he is letting the far right take advantage of him because he is saying and doing things they like he has that confused with the liking him he is going to be their crash test dummy on this he is going to either prove his statements true reversing a lot of social and political gains for Black America which is what far right extremist want or he is going to not beable to prove his statements true and he will be shunned and sh!t on for it either way they got a battery in this mans back and he is to sick to see it for what it is and the corporations like the music companies and the clothing conglomerates threw influence and favors owed are not going to let anyone get in his way on this path to destruction because it would mean his fracture state would free him of contractual obligations he has with them and he is off but he makes them money ........some one needs to grab this man and sit him down he is headed for a crash rapidly.

That could be him one day - you can't escape what you are regardless of having more $$ in the bank than the average Joe. He's lulled by a false sense of security.
