The death of George Floyd took the entire world by storm, and the whole world erupted in chaos to seek justice for the black lives. While the whole world was protesting against the deeply rooted inequality in the US and other big states, these companies declared positive statements through social media to offer their support, and while these companies made a difference by pledging money, there also exist companies that did not respond to this inequality issue in fear of getting their reputation tarnished.
