Christian “pro-life” activists Bevelyn Beatty and Edmee Chavannes were filmed defacing the “Black Lives Matter” mural in front of Trump Tower in New York City on July 18, reports the New York Daily News.
The women — who support President Donald Trump — shouted at the police and onlookers:
Refund the police! Jesus matters! Jesus matters! We will never support Black Lives Matter! Before anything else can matter, Jesus has to matter!
The Gothamist reports that after the Beatty and Chavannes were arrested, Beatty went on to deface more “Black Lives Matter” murals in Harlem and Brooklyn.
An NYPD spokesperson said they did not have information about any arrests of the two women at the site of the other murals.
Beatty and Chavannes previously were charged with creating a disturbance for yelling at patients outside the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood Center on May 30 in New York City.
Chavannes and Beatty were also arrested after they refused to wear required safety masks at a Cape Coral City Council Meeting in Florida on June 6.
