George Floyd's family is planning to sue Kanye West over his overdose comment on his death

Kanye West might face legal trouble for the controversial statement that he made recently against George Floyd's death. As per reports, Floyd's family is planning to file a lawsuit against the American rapper for his inflammatory remarks.

West recently appeared on the Drink Champs podcast, where he made shocking claims by saying that Floyd died from a "fentanyl overdose," not choked.

During his interview, West said that he had watched the documentary made on George Floyd's death: "I watched the George Floyd documentary that Candace Owens put out. One of the things that his two roommates said was that they wanted a tall guy like me, and on the day that he died, he said a prayer for eight minutes, and then they hit him with the fentanyl."

Further, taking the side of the Minnesota cop, Derek Chauvin, who brutally killed Floyd in May 2020, he said, ''If you look, the guy’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that.''

After her claim went viral, civil rights lawyer Lee Merritt, who fought the case of Floyd, revealed that Floyd's family is planning to take legal action against the 'Donda' singer.

Taking to his Twitter account, Lee wrote, "While one cannot defame the dead, the family of George Floyd is considering suit for Kanye’s false statements about the manner of his death," Merritt tweeted. Claiming Floyd died from fentanyl, not the brutality established criminally and civilly, undermines and diminishes the Floyd family’s fight."

In the same interview, he has also attacked the Jewish media for blocking him after his anti-Semitic tweets.
