Jennifer Aniston has quietly donated $1million to a charity battling to “end injustice now”.

The Friends star has been left “heartbroken” by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

She has given the huge sum to Color Of Change – the largest online racial justice organisation in the US, set up to “end practices that unfairly hold black people back”.

My source explains: “Like most people, Jen has been deeply affected by what is going on in America and the terrible injustice that people of colour experience every day.

“She wanted to show her support, and has donated a big sum to the charity she felt resonated with her the most. The link is on her Instagram page so her fans can also donate.”

A conversation about white privilege, systemic racism and ways we can all support each other dominated this week with celebrities – including John Legend, Harry Styles and Ellen DeGeneres – posting about Black Lives Matter charities they have donated to.

Jen, 50, says: “This week has been heartbreaking for so many reasons. We need to acknowledge that the racism and brutality in this country has been going on for a long time – and it’s NEVER been okay.

“As allies, who want equality and peace, it’s our responsibility to make noise, to demand justice, to educate ourselves on these issues, and more than anything, to spread love.”

Her pal Jimmy Fallon is another fan of Color Of Change as is Hilary Clinton, Leonardo DiCaprio and Bernice King, the daughter of late civil rights leader Martin Luther King.

In the words of King, who led the 1960s civil rights movement before he was assassinated: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
