- Gianna Floyd — the daughter of George Floyd, who died after a white police officer pressed his knee on his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds — said on social media that she was given stocks to Disney from Streisand.
- Floyd shared the news in a photo, which shows her holding the certificate.
- She wrote: “Thank You @barbrastreisand for my package, I am now a Disney Stockholder thanks to you.”
- It’s unclear how many shares Streisand bought for her, though.
