This is the woman who bravely stood up to a Black Lives Matter mob in Washington DC, refusing to raise her fist on their command.
Lauren B. Victor, a 49-year-old urban planner, was aggressively heckled by marchers on Monday night while she was dining with a friend in the Adams Morgan district.
Footage, which showed the demonstrators yelling at Victor, has now gone viral and sparked a widespread backlash.
It showed Victor, a MBA graduate of Columbia Business School, stand her ground. She later told The Washington Post that she felt that she was ‘under attack’.
Ironically, Victor is a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement and has participated in many marches, but didn’t want to be ‘coerced’ into showing support.
‘In the moment, it didn’t feel right,’ she stated.
‘I wasn’t actually frightened. I didn’t think they’d do anything to me. I’m very much with them. I’ve been marching with them for weeks and weeks and weeks.’
She’s sooooo close to getting it.
