While there have been many peaceful protests in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, there has also been rioting in some cases. That was the case in Indianapolis this past Saturday night, where former Indiana University football player Chris Beaty was killed. Beaty had been part of the peaceful protests. In a post on Instagram, Caruso paid tribute to Beaty, who was her friend.

She wrote: “I applaud everyone standing up in support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. It’s so important that’s we all have each other’s backs. I especially commend those who are protesting peacefully with a purpose and such strong conviction. I know it’s not easy to keep calm when so many rights have been and continue to be violated. But, PLEASE, let’s try and keep the peace and encourage others to do the same. This weekend a friend of mine from Indianapolis, Chris Beaty, was murdered on Saturday night as he attempted to protect others from the violence that’s been hitting many of our cities hard. I tell you this knowing there’s a huge difference between protestors and rioters, they are not synonymous…but it hurts to lose someone like Chris. He was a staple in my hometown community and loved by everyone he came into contact with. He never didn’t have a smile on his face and while unfortunately his time came way too soon, it’s very fitting he passed away in the midst of committing such a selfless act. I’m tired of people taking advantage of such an important social cause for their own benefit or to be reckless. But now no matter what, we have to keep pushing…not only for George Floyd and the countless others who have been dealt shitty hands as a result of their race, but now also for Chris. Thank you @gstowers2 for capturing and posting this, it’s an amazing tribute. #RIPChrisBeaty #blacklivesmatter #blm #blackouttuesday #justiceforgeorgefloyd #indianapolis
