Soon after former police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty on three counts for murdering George Floyd, Monumental Sports and Entertainment released a statement supporting the decision, while members of the organization including Natasha Cloud and Bradley Beal also took to their personal social media accounts to weigh in.
