Some of the games that have been affected by the following actions are such as Grand Theft Auto Online, Red Dead Online, and also NBA 2K. These three popular games cannot be accessed on Thursday for about 2 hours.
A glimpse of the information George Floyd who was a victim who was able to invite thousands of people to take to the streets is a black citizen. His life was ended on May 25, 2020 yesterday in Minneapolis after being detained on the ground by several local police officers.
