Kim Kardashian Offered to Pay Medical Bills for the Protester Shot in Face

Kim Kardashian decided to donate money for the support of those participating in anti-racism protests all over the US in response to the death of George Floyd.

Last week, the 46-year-old man died from asphyxia (lack of oxygen), after a white police officer knelt on his neck, despite George repeatedly saying that he could not breathe.

On Monday, the famous reality star commented on a picture that showed a woman who had her face covered in blood after she was shot by a rubber bullet while recording the protests in Louisville, Kentucky.

That photo showed the young woman with a piece of flesh missing from her forehead and also a swollen left eye.

In response to the picture, Kim tweeted:” This is heartbreaking and so disturbing. Does anyone know how I can get in contact with her? I would love to help her with her medical care if she needs it.”

A few Twitter users tagged the woman in the photo, known as Shannyn (@shannynsharyse), so Kardashian could contact her directly.

Kim called out ‘systematic racism’ on Twitter amid the protests following George’s death.

‘I am exhausted by the heartbreak I feel seeing mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and children suffering because their loved one was murdered or locked away unjustly for being black,’ she tweeted.
