CNN Vandalized During Black Lives Matter Rally in Atlanta

A CNN sign outside the news station’s building was vandalized on May 29 during a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Centennial Olympic Park, Atlanta, Georgia.

Footage shows protesters mounting the graffiti-clad sign, holding placards that read “black lynching must go” and “justice for all, black lives matter”.

Other footage shared on social media showed protesters hurling objects at the building.

A swathe of protests were held in major cities around the United States following the police-involved death of black man George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on May 25.
