    Machine Gun Kelly, Kendrick Sampson join George Floyd protests; John Cusack says police came at him

    Celebrities are joining thousands of protesters as they crowd the nation’s streets and demand justice for George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck as he gasped, “Please I can’t breathe!”

    John Cusack tweeted that police came at him with batons as he documented the protests in Chicago on Saturday. 

    “Cops didn’t like me filming the burning car so they came at me with batons. Hitting my bike,” he wrote, adding that officers “gently tuned up my bike.”

    “Get out of here! Move!” a man can be heard yelling in the video as he appears to strike Cusack’s bike. “All right, all right, I’m going,” Cusack replies.

    “Ugly scene everywhere now cops restraint seems over,” he wrote. “Nasty violence energy everywhere.”

    It was unclear whether the actor was participating in the protest. USA TODAY has reached out to Cusack’s representative and the Chicago Police Department for comment.

    Kendrick Sampson says he was hit by rubber bullets and even a police officer’s baton while protesting in California.

    The “Vampire Diaries” and “Insecure” star took to Instagram on Saturday to show video from marches in the Los Angeles area.

    Actor Kendrick Sampson says he was hit by rubber bullets and a police officer's baton while protesting George Floyd's death.

    “They’re gonna arrest all of us,” Sampson said in one video clip. “Just to let y’all know, they’re telling us to disperse, but they boxed us in.”

    Tagging “Black lives matter supporters,” he also tweeted for elected officials to “defund police.” 

    On Sunday, he shared more footage, writing, “The violence comes entirely from LAPD … THREE COPS coming at me ganging up on me (even though they have on riot gear and many weapons) as they did many protesters as I defend someone on the ground that they were beating!!! These are acts of war they are committing against us.”

    Machine Gun Kelly shared photos and video from Los Angeles that showed the unmasked rapper holding a sign on Saturday that read “Silence Is Betrayal.” He captioned the image “justice soon …”

    Earlier in the week, he’d slammed “white privilege” on Twitter, writing, “i’m ashamed someone who looks like me could treat another human like this, but they been doing it since the beginning of time. our generation has be the one’s to stop it.”

    Nick Cannon posted photos of himself wearing a hoodie emblazoned, “Please I Can’t Breathe” as he marched in Minneapolis over the weekend.

    “We All Tired of it …” he wrote on one post, “BUT THEY GON HEAR US LOUD AND CLEAR!!!” 

    Musicians HalseyTinashe and Lil Yachty also shared their participation in protests.h@halsey
