The Toronto artist decided to share screenshots of his generous donations to organisations fighting for racial equality following the ongoing protests sparked by the death of George Floyd last month.

Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, donated $200,000 to the Black Lives Matter Global Network, $200,000 the Colin Kaepernick's Know Your Rights Camp legal defense initiative, and $100,000 to National Bail Out.

He captioned the post, "keep supporting our brothers and sisters out there risking everything to push for actual change for our black lives. Urging everyone with big pockets to give and give big and if you have less please give what you can even if it's a small amount."

Yesterday (2 June), The Weeknd also acknowledged the music industry's #BlackoutTuesday day, and urged "industry partners and execs" to "to go big and public" with their donations to similar organisations during the protests. He added, "no one profits off of black music more than the labels and streaming services".

Last month, Crows covered The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" song.
