George Floyd's family is considering suing Kanye West after the rapper claimed Floyd was killed by a fentanyl overdose instead of police brutality.
The potential lawsuit was announced on Sunday in a tweet by civil rights activist and attorney Lee Merritt, who said West's comments about Floyd's cause of death undermined his family.
He conceded that it is impossible to defame the dead, but hinted that the Floyds were still considering action against West over the slur against George, who was murdered by Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin in May 2020.
