The cast and show runner of Brooklyn Nine-Nine have shown their support towards the Black Lives Matter movement in a spectacular way.
After actress Stephanie Beatriz donated $11,000 to the #FreeThemAll bail out fund, it appears she has inspired her co-stars to do the same. She took a screenshot of her donation before taking to Twitter to encourage others to also donate:
Following this selfless act made by the actress, it was then announced that other cast members had come together to donate a total of $100,000 in support of the movement. Andy Samberg tweeted with the hashtag JusticeforGeorgeFloyd when announcing the cast donation:
The show has touched on similar issues in the past during an episode called “Moo Moo” (Season 4 episode 16) in which Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews) is subject to racial profiling. The actor received high praise for his portrayal on the subject matter.
The movement has gained worldwide attention with many other celebrities showing their support. On Tuesday, #TheShowMustBePaused trended on social media in which many businesses and influencers took the time to spread awareness of the movement.
