Celtics forward Jaylen Brown has been very vocal with his opinions on George Floyd’s death after the 46-year-old Minneapolis Black man was killed Monday when a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck.

Brown, who called police brutality “an act of terrorism” in a tweet on Friday, tweeted again at 12:35 a.m. Saturday that he will be peacefully protesting Floyd’s death.

Brown tweeted Saturday afternoon he will walk from the CNN headquarters in Atlanta to the city’s Martin Luther King Jr. memorial, a distance of about 1.5 miles, at 5:30 p.m. that day. 

The 23-year-old wing has been actively voicing his thoughts on Floyd’s death via Twitter.
