But George's death has sparked an outrage like never before.

Thousands upon thousands of people have been taking to the streets in protest...

And they are all marching for one thing: For the blatant racism and injustice in this country to be brought to an end.

Many protests turned violent...

But change needs to happen and, at the moment, this seems like the only way to make it happen.

Remarkably, however, they seem to be working.

Thanks to these riots, the Black Lives Matter movement is dominating global headlines, and it has completely taken over social media.

It has also taken over our streets...

For instance, a group of people painted large yellow letters saying "Black Lives Matter" down two blocks of 16th Street in D.C - a two-lane road that coincidentally leads to the White House.

Protests have been happening across the pond too...

Hundreds of thousands of people have been taking to the streets in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

We are witnessing history in the making...

And people are continuing to demand justice.

However, not everyone has been so supportive of the movement.

Amongst the stories of positivity from the protests, there have been some tales with a slightly more sour undertone.

Blatant racism is still happening across our country...

And countless stories of black people being targeted and unfairly treated are continuing to emerge.

The most recent example has come from Ohio.

A man has come forward with claims that his former employer, Taco Bell, fired him because he was wearing a Black Lives Matter face mask.

Denzel Skinner shared the shocking news in a Facebook Live video.

Sat in his car wearing the white mask, which has the BLM logo emblazoned across the front, Denzel explained that he wore the mask because the surgical masks provided by Taco Bell to their employees proved to be inadequate in warm conditions.

He was told by his supervisor that he wasn't allowed to wear the mask...

via: Facebook

But, because of the poor conditions of the company-provided masks, Denzel refused to swap the masks.

With this, the supervisor continued to argue with him about his mask, so Denzel decided to walk out...

But his manager informed him that, if he were to leave, he would be fired.

"This is crazy."

In the video, Denzel seems genuinely shellshocked at what had just happened, and he falls into silence on several occasions.

You can watch his full video here.

Since he shared his Facebook Live, thousands of people have expressed their horror at his situation.

People have started to call Taco Bell out...

Especially considering their CEO, Mark King, issued a statement about his support on the movement just a few weeks ago.

The company has been slammed as "hypocritical"...

And the hashtag, #RIPTacoBell has started to trend on Twitter.

And, since the backlash, Taco Bell have responded.

The fast food chain said in a statement that, due to mask shortages, employees are in fact allowed to use their own masks or face coverings. They said that they are "disappointed to learn what took place in Youngstown. We are working with our franchisee that operates this location to understand what happened."

And they have insisted that they issued an apology to Denzel.

And they reiterated: “We believe in Black Lives Matter." For more on the discrimination happening across the country, keep scrolling to read about the influx in dangerous and racist "Karens"...
