George Floyd’s Daughter Made Disney Shareholder by Barbra Streisand
Gianna Floyd, the daughter of George Floyd, has become a Disney shareholder thanks to Barbra Streisand.
Gianna posted on Instagram to thank Streisand for her generosity, sharing photos of a letter and a gift certificate which stated: “I am now a Disney Stockholder thanks to you”.
The six-year-old also received copies of two Streisand albums, ‘My Name is Barbra’ (1965) and ‘Color Me Barbra’ (1966).
The shares could serve Floyd well in future, with recent supports suggesting that a $1,000 investment from Disney a decade ago could now be worth more than $4,600, an approximate total return of 370%.

As Variety reports, West will provide the support for 6-year-old Gianna Floyd when she heads to college, while the $2m has been provided to charities associated with Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.
Floyd died after being pinned down by the neck for nearly nine minutes by officer Derek Chauvin during an arrest. His death sparked a series of worldwide anti-racist protests under the Black Lives Matter banner.
