George Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter is now a Disney shareholder, thanks to Barbra Streisand.
Gianna Floyd on Saturday shared a post on Instagram in which she thanked the actress-singer for her gift. The accompanying photos showed her along with a letter and certificate she had received from Streisand, though it’s unclear how many shares were involved. As of market close Friday, shares were valued at $115.49 each.
“Thank You @barbrastreisand for my package, I am now a Disney Stockholder thanks to you,” Gianna’s post read.

Streisand’s gift comes on the heels of previous reports that Kanye West had created a 529 college savings plan to cover tuition for Gianna in full.
And last week, Texas Southern University announced that its Board of Regents and the TSU Foundation Board had approved a fund to provide a full scholarship for Gianna if she wanted to attend the university.
In addition, a GoFundMe account has raised more than $2.1 million.
Floyd was killed May 25 by Minnesota police. Held down on the ground, he pleaded for air as Officer Derek Chauvin pressed a knee into his neck. Following the incident, which was caught on video, Chauvin and three other officers at the scene were fired.
Chauvin was charged with second-degree murder, while the other three were charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
