Teen who recorded George Floyd’s death says she is traumatized

By Biba Adams

17-year-old Darnella Frazier said she is traumatized after witnessing the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers. 

“I seen him die,” a tearful Frazier said. “And everybody’s asking me how do I feel. I don’t know how to feel. Cuz, it’s so sad, bro.” 

The young lady told her story to NowThis days after the fatal incident. 

According to the teen, she was walking to the store with her cousin when she saw the interaction between Floyd and MPD. “They killed that man! And I was right there! I was like five feet away! It’s so traumatizing.” 

Frazier’s mom told TMZ that her daughter is already suffering from social anxiety and has been besieged by media attention and attacks on social media. 

People have even said that the teen should have done “more” to help Floyd.

She responded in a Facebook post, “I’m a minor!” Frazier wrote, “Of course I’m not about to fight a cop I’m SCARED wtf. Fighting would’ve got someone else killed or in the same position as George.” 

The teen goes on to say that if it were not for her video, the police may have gotten away with killing Floyd. 

“Instead of bashing me, THANK ME!” she wrote, “Because that could’ve been one of your loved ones and you would want to see the truth as well.” 

Some people have put for the narrative that Frazier only posted the video for attention or money. She has vehemently denied that. 

The 17-year-old should be being celebrated as a hero, instead, she is being victimized by internet trolls and critics.

Michelle Obama is here to make everyone smile.

The former first lady participated in Friday’s MTV Prom-athon, a nationwide virtual dance experience for the entire class of 2020. While the coronavirus pandemic made a traditional prom impossible for high schoolers across the nation, Obama celebrated and uplifted the students with some inspiring words.

“Hey Class of 2020! Look, I know that none of you planned on missing out on so many senior year milestones, things like sports tournaments, or prom nights,” Obama began. “But I am so proud of what I’ve seen from you all. You’re preserving through everything you’re facing and look, there is no playbook for any of this, and yet you’ve shown creativity and resilience far beyond your years.”

Obama continued by adding she wants everyone to “breathe deep, dance your heart out and enjoy this Prom-a-thon.”

“You’ve earned it and, as always, if you know anyone who is not registered to vote, just tell them to text PROM to 56005,” she said. “It might be the most important thing you do right now.”MTV@MTV
