Derek Chauvin's family is confused.

Derek Chauvin is someone that the majority of people online hate with a burning passion. Overall, this is because he is the officer responsible for the death of George Floyd. His trial was something that everyone was tuning in for. In the end, he was convicted of murdering the man and he was sentenced to a lengthy stay in prison. However, things went a bit awry for Chauvin recently as he was reportedly stabbed. This took place just a few days after his bid to appeal the decision was struck down.

Overall, many were kind of stunned by this news. Originally, it was said that he was in serious condition. Now, however, he has been put in stable condition. As we previously reported, his family found out about the news on social media. They were not made aware by the prison, which led to some confusion. Subsequently, his legal team is getting involved, according to TMZ. Gregory M. Erickson, Chauvin's lawyer, is now trying to contact the prison for answers.
