(Newser) – The 6-year-old daughter of George Floyd now owns stock in Disney, thanks to Barbra Streisand. Gianna "Gigi" Floyd, whose father sparked worldwide activism when he was killed at the hands of Minneapolis cops, posted a photo on Instagram Saturday showing herself holding the stock certificate and thanking Streisand for sending it to her, USA Today reports. The girl has amassed more than 44,000 followers since starting the Instagram page Thursday; she has posted photos of herself with her dad, NBA star Stephen Jackson, and Joe Biden, plus messages including "Stop killing our fathers" and one photo captioned "No Justice No Peace, We will get justice for you Daddy." (Kanye West will pay for her college education, and a GoFundMe campaign has also been set up for her.)
