Munemo Mushonga is set to trademark George Floyd’s name for his future entertainment projects.

According to TMZ, legal documents have already been filed to trademark Floyd’s name for future TV shows and movies. Even though Mushonga has no ties or relations to the Floyd family, he is still determined to have control over Floyd’s name and likeness for entertainment projects. 

Mushongo is yet to reveal what his detailed plans are for the projects. In order for him to obtain the trademark, Mushonga has to get written permission from Floyd, which is impossible to obtain. 

Floyd died when ex-Minneapolis police officer, David Chauvin, dug his knee into Floyd’s neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds. Chauvin is still facing charges of second-degree murder and his next court date is June 29.
