Man in BLACKFACE protests as he’s dragged through angry crowd by cops after his arrest at anti-racism event in Toronto


THIS is the shocking moment a man in blackface is led away by Canadian cops after he was arrested at an anti-racism protest in Toronto.

Police were forced to intervene on Saturday when the man arrived at the demonstration wearing black makeup to the disgust of witnesses protesting George Floyd's death.

Demonstrations decrying police brutality and systemic racism erupted in the US, Canada, and Europe after Floyd, an unarmed black man, died at the hands of Minneapolis cops 12 days ago.

While others protested peacefully, disturbing footage emerged on social media showing the man in blackface defiantly shouting back at angry protesters as he is led away in handcuffs.

While he attempted to make his way through the rally, officers on bicycles stepped in and escorted him away.

The man was doused in water before his reported arrest, according to a Newstalk1010 journalist.

The Canadian news outlet later reported that the man was later charged with Breach of the Peace after his shocking display.
