His post comes after protests and riots erupted across the U.S after George Floyd, an unarmed black man, died in Minneapolis last Monday when a white cop pressed his knee against his neck for eight minutes.
Mr Floyd had been accused of using a counterfeit $20 bill at a deli.
One of the officers involved, Derek Michael Chauvin, was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter days after footage of the incident went viral.

Over the past week, protesters in the US have taken to the streets demanding reform after what many consider another senseless death and example of police brutality.
On Saturday, Los Angeles descended into violence as cops in riot gear clashed with protesters who sprayed graffiti and torched police cruisers while officers shot rubber bullets into crowds and beat demonstrators with batons.
Other celebrities including singer Halsey, Emily Ratajkowski, Anna Kendrick and Paris Jackson have attended the protests in Los Angeles to protest George Floyd’s death.
