“What happened to George Floyd cannot be ignored,” the statement read. “Racism that exists today in all forms is not acceptable. While I am not able to relate to the discrimination that black and minority communities face daily, I will listen and education myself on how I can make a difference.”
Crosby’s statement comes after the Penguins as a team released a statement on Tuesday regarding Floyd’s death.
