Chris McCarthy, president of ViacomCBS' entertainment and youth brands, said in a statement that Monday's tribute -- set to the amount of time Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin had his knee on Floyd's neck -- is part of the company's plans to "to shine a light on the realities of racial injustice and call for equality" and to "foster a culture that deeply values and respects diversity and inclusion." Following today's tribute, "on Tuesday, we are joining Black Out Tuesday, to focus our attention away from work and towards our community. We will not hold any meetings nor conduct any business – rather we will stand in solidarity with our African American colleagues and loved ones across the country," McCarthy wrote. "This is just the beginning and I acknowledge that we don’t have all the answers. Over the next few weeks, you will be invited to join us for discussions on ways we can use our brands and platforms to inspire and enact change."
