“The cast in addition to showrunner of ‘Brooklyn 99’ condemn the murder of George Floyd in addition to support the many people who are protesting police brutality nationally. Together we have made a $100,000 donation to The National Bail Fund Network. We encourage you to look up your local bail fund: the National Bail Fund Network can be an organization in which can lead you to them. #blacklivesmatter.”
Stephanie Beatriz, who stars on the show as Det. Rosa Diaz, made a personal donation to the fund as well. She also urged any actors who portray police officers on television to do the same.
“I’m an actor who plays a detective on tv,” she tweeted. “If you currently play a cop? If you make tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in residuals by playing a cop? I’ll let you do the math.”
