What perhaps is more concerning though, was his next picture posted on social media shortly after that with him posing with a gun, especially given America’s recent tragedies with gun crime – surely not helped by the statement:
“I hit the target 49 times #Sniper #SharpShooter.”
Some may say this is just a harmless Halloween costume/marketing ploy which I get, but perhaps given the current climate, gun costumes should be considered more by well known public figures such as Floyd, given what has gone on recently in the States.
