Twitter has failed to take action as several verified accounts on Wednesday posted a photo falsely linking a Minneapolis police officer — infamous after he was caught on video kneeling on a now-deceased black man’s neck — with a man wearing a “Make Whites Great Again” baseball hat.

The video, which has sparked national outrage, shows police detaining 46-year-old George Floyd in south Minneapolis on Monday evening.

The clip shows an officer, believed to be Derek Chauvin, kneeling on Floyd’s neck for over seven minutes as he uttered, “I can’t breathe. Please, the knee on my neck.”

Hours after the video went viral, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey announced the firings of four Minneapolis Police Department officers.

“Being black in America should not be a death sentence,” he said. “For 5 minutes we watched as a white officer pressed his knee to the neck of a black man, for 5 minutes. When you hear someone calling for help, you are supposed to help, this officer failed in the most basic human sense.”
