WATCH: Black Lives Matter protesters interrupt Hillary’s campaign speech in Atlanta
Despite meeting recently with Black Lives Matters leaders, a group of BLM activists interrupted Hillary Clinton as she prepared to give her planned remarks in Atlanta today.
As the former Secretary of State began to speak, a group of eight protesters entered between Clinton and the crowd, clapping their hands and chanting.
Clinton was expected to call for legislation banning racial profiling by law enforcement, and she attempted to shout over the protesters saying, “My friends, I’m going to get to some very important points, that black lives do matter,” to the cheers of the crowd.
The protesters were soon drowned out by the predominately black audience — who came to hear her speak — with chants of “Hillary. Hillary.”
Congressman and civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) also attempted to ask the protesters to allow Clinton to speak.
As the protesters continued to interrupt, the crowd then began chanting, “Let her talk.”
