Pause and silence on social media in memory of the 46-year-old African American killed in Minneapolis during a police arrest. The initiative consists in obscuring one’s profile or sharing a completely black post, using the hashtag #theshowmustbepaused. From the Rolling Stones to Hollywood stars, many artists have joined.
Cinema, music, fashion, entertainment and theater, but also newspapers and industry media stop on social networks for 24 hours: a solidarity blackout after the death of 46-year-old African American George Floyd during a police detention. The initiative consists in obscuring one’s social profile or sharing a completely black post by stopping all communication for a day, in protest and to reflect on what is happening in the United States ( THE PROTESTS ). The other hashtag used for this initiative, in addition to #blackouttuesday in fact, is #theshowmustbepaused (“the show must stop”).
