New York City actress Jacqueline Guzman has been fired from her job at an NYC theatre company after her social media rants about being inconvenienced by the closure of streets for the funeral of murdered NYPD Officer Jason Rivera.
The actress videotaped herself walking down a barricaded street in NYC as she ranted about being inconvenienced on her @Tik Tok account @VinylBoobs:
“Like this is fu***** ridiculous. This is fu***** ridiculous. What if somebody is having a heart attack in this area,” she ranted.
“Nobody can get to them because it’s all blocked off for one fu***** cop!”
“We do not need to shut down most of Lower Manhattan because one cop died for probably doing his job incorrectly. They kill people who are under 22 every single day for no good reason, and we don’t shut down the city for them,” the leftist actress exclaimed.
I’m not usually one for the cancel culture because I enjoy watching a good train wreck but this one has Amtrak beat on how to derail. Great job #JacquelineGuzman enjoy unemployment pic.twitter.com/tiOhuTCaai

After the video went viral, Guzman’s former theater company Face to Face Films released a statement.
“Face to Face Films has just been made aware of an insensitive video involving one of our members, Jacqueline Guzman,” the company said on Facebook.
“Face to Face Films does not support nor can condone these comments made about fallen Officer Rivera. As a result, she is no longer a member of our company.”
According to Guzman’s bio on the company’s website, she is a Cuban-American actress originally from Miami, Florida.
NYP reports – Condemnation of Guzman was swift.
“New Yorkers turned out by the thousands yesterday to help us honor our fallen brother. One person spreading hate cannot erase that. This kind of garbage has polluted the conversation for far too long. We need the New Yorkers who are standing with us to speak up and push back,” PBA President Patrick Lynch said.
One Brooklyn cop said the video was “totally disrespectful, not only to the NYPD but to all New York residents and to all humans. If this is the only way she can get publicity, I feel very sorry for her.”
