The incident happened the day before Black Consciousness Day, a recognized holiday in Brazil intended to shed light on racial discrimination. Brazilian media reports said Freitas told the guards "that he could not breathe," similarly to the words Floyd cried out while pinned under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer, France24.com reported.

Brazilian activists have long sought to combat racial injustice, even gathering for demonstrations following Floyd's death earlier this year.

"Today is the #DiadaConsciênciaNegra (Black Consciousness Day)," the governor of Rio Rio Grande do Sul, Eduardo Leite tweeted on Friday. "Unfortunately, on this date when we should celebrate public policies and progress in the fight for racial equality, we are faced with scenes that leave us indignant at the excess of violence that led to the death of a black citizen."

In addition, on Friday, representatives of the supermarket announced they had suspended the company's contractual relationship with the security firm that the guards worked for, according to Al Jazeera.

"Carrefour Brazil has taken immediate internal measures, particularly targeting the security company involved," the supermarket company said in a statement on Twitter on Saturday. "But these measures will not be enough. Racism and violence go completely against both my own values, and those of Carrefour."
