Ryan Reynolds Donated A Ton Of Money To NAACP Legal Defense Fund
In a recent Instagram post, Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds announced that he and his wife, actress Blake Lively, had donated $200,000 to the NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund. The donation was made in support of the nationwide protests following the death of George Floyd, an African American man who was choked after being arrested for passing and possessing an insignificantly small amount of counterfeit currency.

“We contributed $200,000 to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund,” the couple stated in their lengthy but thoughtful post. “We stand in awe of this organization and its leader, Sherrilyn Ifill. And this is just a start.” In the paragraphs that follow their announcement, Reynolds and Lively share their thoughts on the history of racial violence in America, and express their sympathies for the cause which the protesters are fighting for.
