Musical artists aren’t the only celebrities being subjected to zombification. George Floyd, whose likeness after death might be the most exploited in recent history, went on a tour of the South as a 3D hologram
three months after his murder by police. Presented by Change.org and the George Floyd Foundation, Hologram Floyd temporarily replaced former Confederate statues along the route of the 1961 Freedom Rides
“as a symbolic call for racial justice and solidarity.” Like Houston and Prince, Floyd’s loved ones were behind the project. “The hologram will allow my brother's face to be seen as a symbol for change in places where change is needed most,” said Robert Floyd. Unlike in the cases of Houston and Prince, it’s unclear if the Floyd family profited financially from the hologram tour.
