Shame On You: Couple Reenacts Chokehold Death On Live TV
Probably the most awful couple in the world wandered into a New York City reporter’s live broadcast and rudely reenacted the choking death of Eric Garner while protesters rallied nearby.
WPIX’s Allison Kaden reported on the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Wednesday night, December 3 and explained that cops kept out a group of protesters furious that a Staten Island grand jury failed to indict the New York Police Department cop.
As she explained that roads around the tree were shut down to keep protesters away, a couple walked into the frame.
Noticing they were on live broadcast, the man wrapped his arms around the woman’s neck, mimicking the July chokehold death. Then the woman put her hands up — just like Gander did before he was wrestled to the ground.
This is as embarrassing as it gets.
