So last week, the video went viral showing three women reportedly from Houston attacking a hostess at a restaurant in New York City after being asked for their vaccine passport.
“Police said three Texans -- a 44-year-old, her 21-year-old daughter, and a 49-year-old -- became enraged.
CBS New York, citing the NYPD, reported the hostess in her 20s was punched, slapped and pushed after she asked the group for proof of vaccination.
The vaccination question is part of a new NYC policy to dine indoors.
At one point in the melee, the hostess’ necklace was pulled from her neck and one woman was even carried away from the scene at Broadway and West 90th Street.
The three Texas women were taken into custody and given desk appearance tickets, according to reports.”
In response, BLM now says they plan to protest at the restaurant.
Hawk Newsome, co-founder and chairman of BLM Greater New York, says the women treated unfairly.
He says “restaurants are using vaccine mandates to enforce their racist beliefs and excluding Black patrons.”
An attorney for one of the women, Kaeita Nkeenge Rankin, described the fight as a "mutual combat."
Rankin's lawyer, Justin Moore, said that the hostess spoke condescendingly to the women as she suggested that their vaccination cards were fake.
So many uncomfortable layers to this story for the mainstream media to address.
