Giancarlo Stanton leads Yankees speaking out against George Floyd killing

TAMPA -- Giancarlo Stanton may be stepping a little out of his comfort zone, but he did it with authority. In response to the killing of 46-year old George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer and the protests that have spread across the nation, the usually quiet Yankees slugger added his voice loudly and clearly.

“Enough is Enough,” Stanton wrote in a post on Instagram and Twitter. “It’s going to take everyone to help this system change. No matter your color or attributes, We are all human, who know what’s right deep down. Making a real change will be Justice for Floyd & everyone who came before him.
