‘Insecure’ Actor Kendrick Sampson Hit By Rubber Bullets During George Floyd Protest

“That was one of 7 shots I took.”

Insecure actor and activist Kendrick Sampson was one of the many protestors who was struck by rubber bullets during the Saturday (May 30) protest in Los Angeles over  the police killing of George Floyd.  

Uploading the events on his Instagram and Twitter page, Sampson shared multiple videos of a large demonstration outside the Grove shopping center as police began to attack the peaceful crowd. 

“You can see several of them hit me multiple times with batons, then an officer aims straight at me, no ricochet, and shoots. And hits. That was one of 7 shots I took. They are excruciating. And they CAN kill.” Sampson explains after he stepped in front of his assistant who was also hit with rubber bullets. 

“Let’s #DEFUNDPOLICE and use those resources for alternatives to incarceration, unarmed, non law-enforcement first responders, mental health care, covid relief, education, housing,” he captioned in another video further explaining the incidents that took place during the Los Angeles protest.
