WATCH: Fox News Crew Covering White House Protests Chased Away by Activists
We must warn you, there is plenty of strong language in the clip that you’re about to see.
Last night was a raucous night in America, as the nation reacted in rage to the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police.
Floyd was killed by a police officer name Derek Chauvin, who kneeled on the pleading man’s neck for 9 minutes until he was deceased, as a number of fellow officers stood by calmly and uninterested in what was occurring before their very eyes.
In response, Americans of all stripes took to the streets across our great nation to let their voices be heard. The scene was particularly turbulent at the White House, where protesters not only clashed with the Secret Service, but also chased a Fox News crew away from the scene while shouting profanities.
An angry mob of rioters stoked by the death of a black man at the apparent hand of a Minneapolis cop turned its rage on a Fox News crew early Saturday, chasing and pummeling the journalists outside the White House in a harrowing scene captured on video.
Veteran reporter Leland Vittert was covering protests in Lafayette Park just before1 a.m. with three crewmembers when as many as a dozen masked protesters surrounded them, in footage caught by the Daily Caller.
After a protester lunged at Vittert while he was reporting on air, the team made a beeline out of the park, with the hostile and growing crowd in pursuit.
Vittert and the crew were punched and hit with projectiles as they fled, and a Fox News camera was broken when a member of the mob tried to grab it.
Video of the incited has been making the rounds online, and we must warn you that there is plenty of vulgar language within the footage.
There is no telling what may be in store for the White House tonight, as President Trump has insinuated that Saturday will be “MAGA Night” at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
