Racism has infected every part of society, the heavyweight champ said, and he called on everyone to stop it from spreading further.

Joshua took part in demonstrations that began in the United States nearly two weeks ago and have since gone worldwide after black American George Floyd was killed by a cop who placed his knee on Floyd's neck for nearly 9 minutes until he died.

Joshua, the current WBA, WBO and IBF champion, called racism a virus that has been declared a pandemic and is "out of control."

What Should You Do With Your Clothes After The Police Tear Gas You?

Since George Floyd’s death on May 25, people have gathered to protest, in groups large and small, against police brutality. To disperse crowds of protesters, law enforcement has frequently sprayed tear gas. Its micro-pulverized dust lodges both in the body and in clothing. According to Allure, the CDC says anyone sprayed with tear gas, even lightly, should shower and shampoo as soon as possible. If clothing needs to be lifted over the head to remove, it should be cut away.
