A growing list of celebrities are doing their part to bail out protestors across the United States.
Chrissy Teigen shared on her Instagram an exchange in which she announced she was donating $100,000 to help bail out protestors. When one person replied suggesting that they are “rioters and criminals”, the model upped the amount to $200,000.
Other celebs like Seth Rogen have “matched” donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund. The Canadian star even added a bit more on.

Join me in donating to the Minnesota Freedom Fund to bail out those arrested protesting the racist murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police. You can do so from outside the US too. Thank you. https://t.co/hssjdW5mnT https://t.co/wbLBEb2Mpo

been donating as much as I can to as many worthy places as I can (George Floyd memorial fund, Bail funds, NAACP, ACLU, etc) I’m sorry I only publicized the one chain donation on twitter. Doing everything I can to educate and be as effective an ally as possible #BlackLivesMatter https://t.co/FQ2sIa2SR3
