A massive ‘Black Trans Lives Matter’ protest was held in Brooklyn, New York today. A video from the protest shows thousands packed in the streets.
NY Rep.Lee Zeldin wasted no time calling out the hypocrisy of having a huge ‘Black Trans Lives Matter’ protest while New York State is still demanding that high school graduation be held to 150 people. He also said some businesses haven’t been allowed to open yet.
Governor Cuomo has been singling out and threatening New Yorkers in the “Hamptons and Manhattan” (see below) but NOT the ‘Black Trans’ protest crowd.
Rep. Zeldin tweeted:
If this is OK, then it’s definitely NOT OK for the state to cap outdoor graduation ceremonies for NY’s High School seniors at 150 people. Not to mention countless businesses haven’t even been allowed to open up yet
And then we have our Govenorhttps://t.co/Ydwp8fPzqM

New Yorkers are not happy about this hypocrisy. One angry New Yorker tweeted:
“On Friday we learned that summer sleepaway camps would not open in NY. Kids are being turned away from playgrounds in Brooklyn. Yet just a few miles away, this rally occurred today. The lockdown is over, except for the camps, schools & stores that are forced to comply with it.”
Another New Yorker said his family can’t open their restaurants but this huge protest is allowed to happen:
My family can’t open their restaurants, but this can happen.
