Comedian Chelsea Handler received social media backlash on Tuesday after questioning the need for murder trials “when there is audio and video footage of the murder.”
Handler made the remarks Tuesday on Twitter while discussing the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer accused of murdering George Floyd on May 25, 2020. Footage leading up to and including Floyd’s death, which quickly went viral and sparked worldwide Black Lives Matter protests, shows Chauvin with his knee on Floyd’s neck for over nine minutes. Handler suggested that Chauvin should be deemed guilty based on the footage alone, with no need for a trial.
“So pathetic that there is a trial to prove that Derek Chauvin killed George Floyd when there is video of him doing so,” Handler tweeted.
