Barbra Streisand gifts Disney stock to George Floyd's daughter

Barbra Streisand gifts Disney stock to George Floyd's daughter”

George Floyd's daughter, Gianna Floyd is now a Disney stockholder thanks to Barbra Streisand.

Gianna posted a photo on her Instagram account holding her Disney shares certificate and thanked Streisand in the caption.

It is not clear how many shares Streisand purchased for Gianna, whose father died in police custody last month, after a white police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.

Floyd's killing sparked protests against police brutality and the use of excessive force around the world, with Black Lives Matter demonstrations continuing to take place across the US and elsewhere over the weekend.

Gianna didn't indicate how many shares the Barbra bought for her. Disney stock, always one of the most desirable stocks to own, is currently trading at $115 each right now and is typically thought of as a solid investment. Streisand's package to Floyd also included two of her studio albums, My Name Is Barbra and Color Me Barbra.

Gianna's new Instagram, less than a week old, already has more than 45,000 followers.

Streisand is not the only one supporting Gianna during this hard period. Texas Southern University also offered her a full-ride scholarship if she chooses to attend the school in the future.

"We know the value of an education in the pursuit of solutions and generational progress".
