"So when it comes to Black Lives Matter, I think what folks that are writing "All Lives Matter" need to understand is that for some people...black lives don't matter at all", he said as he began to hold back tears. He is later seen standing on the trunk of the auto while waving the sign, and standing in front of a group of demonstrators shouting, "I can't breathe".

Demonstrations have broken out across the United States following the death of Mr Floyd and other allegations of police brutality against people of colour. Local media said at least several hundred protesters participated in the march.

Footage of the killing, taken by a bystander, showed Floyd lying face down and handcuffed, groaning for help and repeatedly saying, "please, I can't breathe", before becoming motionless.

In another video, one of the brothers is standing on a moving auto as he chants, "No justice, no peace".

Although the #BlackOutTuesday campaign hit a few hurdles earlier on Tuesday as a result of people using the hashtags dedicated to Black Lives Matter, it has collectively proven success with over 20 million accounts globally using the hashtag on Instagram.

In another clip captioned, 'Unity on Hollywood Blvd, ' one of the twins is seen holding hands with the people around him.

"Killed my people for no damn reason, so now we about to come loot your white businesses / I was trying to protest but the police keep asking me questions, get the fuck out my business".
