LOS ANGELES, CA – The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating a disgusting Valentine’s Day meme mocking the death of George Floyd.  Sources report the meme was created by a department employee, but as of yet, the LAPD has been unable to confirm.

GEORGE FLOYD DEATH VALENTINE INVESTIGATION

“The Department has become aware of allegations that an image was being passed around the department and this image was in the workplace,” the department said. “There are also allegations that the post with the image was authored by a department employee. A personnel complaint has been initiated and we are pursuing each allegation including interviewing the department member who brought it to our attention.”

At this point, the Department has not identified any actual postings in the workplace or identified that it was in fact our department employee who created the image.

“We have raised the apparent existence of the image and directed commands to survey the worksites for it,” the department added. “If found any employee or supervisor is directed to take possession and identify those present. The Department will have zero tolerance for this type of behavior. ”


WHAT DID GEORGE FLOYD VALENTINE MEME ACTUALLY SAY?

The meme was a picture of Floyd with the caption, “You take my breath away”.

“I just received word through the chain of command of a complaint that was generated on an inappropriate online post from a Department member,” Captain James Mastick of the Harbor Patrol division said in an email. “The post depicts a photo of George Floyd, with a caption, ‘you take my breath away’ in a valentine format.”
