Los Angeles: Rapper Kanye West is in legal trouble for issuing scandalous statements about George Floyd, the African-American who was murdered by police officers in US’ Minnesota over a twenty-dollar bill on May 25, 2020.

Attorneys for Floyd’s family have issued a cease-and-desist letter to Ye, accusing the rapper of ‘traumatising’ Floyd’s daughter. Ye alleged Floyd was not killed, but died of potent synthetic opioid, Fentanyl.

“Kanye West knowingly made blatantly false statements about George Floyd’s death to promote his brands, and increase marketing value and revenue for himself, his business partners, and associates,” Floyd’s legal representation claim as per a letter by TMZ.

“During the podcast interview, Kanye stated malicious falsehoods about Floyd to profit from his horrendous death and his family’s trauma.

“The full interview has since been removed from YouTube and RevoltTV, but clips of the rapper’s rant continue to be viewed and shared on social media platforms by millions across the world.

“The interests of the child are priority. George Floyd’s daughter is being retraumatised by Kanye West’s comments and he’s creating an unsafe and unhealthy environment for her”, TMZ reported.
