American conservative political activist Charlie Kirk claimed in a video viewed hundreds of thousands of times on Facebook that a medical examiner said George Floyd’s death should be ruled an overdose. This is false; the doctor, who conducted Floyd’s autopsy, testified that he stands by his assessment of the cause of death and his classification of it as a homicide.
