A white woman had a racist meltdown after seeing a 3D hologram of George Floyd being projected onto a Robert E. Lee statue.
The woman appeared to malfunction when she saw the honorary action in Virginia. Her racist rant was filmed at the memorial for Floyd in Richmond, Virginia on July 28, according to FOX 5 DC.
Floyd was killed by Minneapolis police in May, and his death sparked ongoing nationwide protests against police brutality and systemic racism. The public hologram was meant to be a moving and historic moment, not one that sparked a racist rant.
Trigger warning the video below contains racial slurs and other explicit words.
While assaulting the person filming the incident the worman shouted:
This is public property. This is my city.
People at the event scolded her behaviour and called her “a racist” before asking her to leave the area.
In response, the woman looked at the cameraperson and said:
You’re a f***ing n*****. Look at this n***** s***.
The foundation created by Floyd's family launched a new initiative to project a hologram of George Floyd at a handful of Confederate monuments throughout the South
A press release from the organisers said the project aims to “transform spaces that were formerly occupied by racist symbols of America’s dark Confederate past into a message of hope, solidarity and forward-thinking change.”
Floyd’s death sparked numerous Black Lives Matter demonstrations across the world. Monuments to Confederate leaders have been taken down in states across the country in response to the movement, while the Confederate flag has been banned from Nascar events and removed from Marine Corps installations.
