Best Buy was one of the numerous companies to update their website and social media pages after the death of George Floyd and after the shooting injury of Jacob Blake.
None of the men shot by Rittenhouse were black.
The email from Mark Irvin, Chief Inclusion Talent and Diversity Officer, was addressed to all employee resource group members and stated, "The verdict in Kyle Rittenhouse's trial stirs many emotions, and it’s another difficult moment for our nation."
"While these events can be challenging and deeply hurtful, I hope you will take a moment to reflect on the values that unite us as a company and as a nation. We can do better, as each of us as individuals, allies, and human beings press together for better outcomes."
"I know events like these can take a toll on mental health and emotional well-being. Please know that Best Buy is here to support you."
Irvin then presented links to counseling services and mental health resources, which are available through the company-provided benefits.
The email closed, "By engaging together, and supporting one another in vulnerability, empathy, courage, and grace, we can continue to strengthen our company and community to stand together as one."
Irvin signed off, "Steadfast together."
Throughout the tumult that followed the death of Floyd and the shooting of Blake, Best Buy locations in Emeryville, Oakland, and San Francisco, California, as well as Chicago, Illinois, and others, were looted.
Looters even stole a crane to break into the Fairfield, California location.
In West Palm Beach, FL, a Best Buy Geek Squad car was even set on fire.
Meanwhile, The CEO of Best Buy further announced that the recent spate of mass store thefts has been "traumatic" for employees.
On Tuesday, Corie Barry told CNBC's "Squawk Box" that she is "seeing more loosely organized groups come together and target our stores," a trend that is scaring employees.
"What I would really stress here is, for our employees, these are really traumatic experiences," she announced. "Obviously, their safety is our first priority."
"They are happening more and more across the country," Barry said. "It's really been a horrible change in the trajectory of the business, and one we are working hard to try and stem."
