George Floyd’s daughter has become an official shareholder for the Walt Disney Co. thanks to Barbra Streisand.

What happened:

  • 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.

A similar move from Texas Southern University

  • Texas Southern University announced it would provide Gianna with a full scholarship to the school if she wished to attend the university, according to CNN.
  • Gerald Smith, chairman of the TSU Foundation, said in a statement: “We know the value of an education in the pursuit of solutions and generational progress. We look forward to embracing her into the TSU family.”
  • Kanye West said he set up a college fund for Gianna’s future and her college tuition, which is one part of a $2 million donation to support Floyd’s family, as well as those related to Ahmaud Arberyand Breonna Taylor, according to Vulture.
