George died on Monday evening in Minneapolis shortly after the incident took place. The video sparked a nationwide outcry in the US and the four officers involved at the scene, were fired after the video went viral.

Yesterday, Kareena took to her Instagram and shared the cover of Time Magazine, which shows a monochrome picture of a protest where man is being chased by a group of cops. The text on the cover reads, "America in the years 1968, 2015 and 2020. What has changed. What hasn't". The 'Good Newwz' actress captioned the post with the hashtag '#JusticeForGeorgeFloyd' along with a broken heart emoji.
