People are noting the irony of a Chick-fil-A in Philadelphia being looted by rioters just months after the company’s CEO Dan Cathy shined a black rapper’s shoes in a pro-Black Lives Matter PR stunt.
BLM supporters and other criminal opportunists reacted to the police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr., who was killed after advancing towards officers with a knife, by staging violent unrest, attacking police and looting stores.
After targeting a local Walmart and Footlocker, looters turned their attention to Chick-fil-A, smashing into and damaging a branch of the food chain.

Bubba Wallace’s race car dash cam captured the moment the racer spun out of control moments after failing to overtake a “Trump 2020” stock car.
On Sunday, Wallace’s car was outfitted with cameras mounted inside and outside his car to give NASCAR playoff viewers an in-car first-person livestream of the race at Talladega Superspeedway.
Amid the last six laps, and after narrowly avoiding an earlier crash, Wallace attempted to make a move on the outside lane after trailing for some time behind the “Trump 2020” car, driven by Corey LaJoie.
“Call the police” began trending on Twitter after BLM rioters in Kenosha made the plea following a shooting, a massive irony given that Black Lives Matter’s goal is to defund and abolish the police.
Several people were shot last night, including one fatally, as the riots continued to spiral out of control.
One of the shootings happened after rioters attempted to burn down another car dealership and were met by an armed citizen trying to defend the property.
One clip shows a man who has been shot in the head being helped by another individual who screams for someone to “call the police.”

Downtown Portland is now too unstable for the ‘Banana Republic,’ a clothing chain named after politically unstable countries.
The clothing retailer is leaving downtown Portland due to the ‘lawlessness’ of ongoing protests in the city, according to Fox Business.
“The months of protests and riots in Portland have prompted some businesses in the city to opt to move out completely or relocate outside its central district, according to a report on Monday,” the outlet reported. “Greg Goodman, the co-president of the Downtown Development Group, said in a letter to Mayor Ted Wheeler and members of the Portland City Council that the exodus of companies wasn’t related to the Black Lives Matter movement ‘but does have most everything to do with the lawlessness you are endorsing downtown.’”
Paul Gallant has a new perspective on violent protests after mocking President Donald Trump in June for saying anarchists were burning and pillaging Seattle. All it took was for the mayhem to come near the talk show host’s home.
“I feel like I need to buy a firearm because this is clearly going to keep happening,” Gallant said Saturday night on Twitter after coming home to see the Starbucks coffeeshop below his apartment complex “destroyed” by vandals. “Enough is enough. It looks like a block party down the street from me. Really angry right now.”
The reaction stood in stark contrast to last month, when Trump complained that Seattle’s mayor was allowing violent protesters to take over the city. “These liberal Dems don’t have a clue,” the president said. “The terrorists burn and pillage our cities, and they think it’s just wonderful, even the death.”
A far-left activist group based in Austin, Texas, pushing new “Defund the Police” measures had its tax-exempt status revoked by the IRS last year.
The group, called the Austin Justice Coalition, had its 501(c)(3) status revoked in May 2019 after failing to file its annual return for three consecutive years via a Form 990.
Filing a Form 990 entails disclosing salaries, expenditures, and funding ties of the organization in order to receive tax-exempt status, something the group apparently doesn’t want known.
The Austin Justice Coalition has been vocal about calls to defund the police in recent days following the death of George Floyd in May.

Rioters shattered windows after throwing stones at several young men, one of whom was providing the crowd with a ‘thumbs up,’ a newly-surfaced viral video depicts.
“We’re on your side!” said one of the boys. “We’re on your f*cking side, what the f*ck?”
At least two windows were destroyed and the group’s beer pong tournament was most likely put on hold.
In no time, the twitter crowd was quick to provide their take of the incident
Despite their best efforts to corporate virtue signal in favor of the rioters and looters currently tearing apart American cities, both Nike and Amazon were targeted anyway.
Last week, Nike tweeted a video in which the company urged people, “Don’t turn your back on racism,” “don’t pretend there’s not a problem in America” and demanding people “be part of the change.”
Within days footage emerged of rioters looting a Nike store, which is undoubtedly one of several that have been targeted over the last few days.
There’s an added layer of irony to the footage when you consider the fact that Nike used Colin Kaepernick, the face of the “take a knee” campaign, for its 2018 commercial in which Kaepernick asserted, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything. Just Do It.”
Ellen DeGeneres compared self-isolating in her California mansion to being in prison, and Twitter users were quick to call out the talk show host for what they felt was an insensitive remark.
During her show on Monday, DeGeneres revealed that she was now filming from the comfort of her home that she shares with wife Portia de Rossi. After thanking first responders, emergency workers, doctors, nurses, and other essential pandemic workers, DeGeneres pivoted to talking about her experience self-isolating with de Rossi and their dog (around the two-minute mark).
“One thing I’ve learned from being in quarantine is that people — this is like being in jail, is what this is,” DeGeneres said, adding, “It’s mostly because I’ve been wearing the same clothes for 10 days, and everyone in here is gay.”
Greenpeace activists protesting the use of fossil fuels impeded traffic on a major Houston thoroughfare Thursday when they staged a demonstration by suspending off the Houston Ship Channel Bridge ahead of the Democrat debates.
Footage shows several banner-carrying activists suspended with harnesses over the Fred Hartman Bridge, which is a major port of entry for Houston and one of the busiest ports in the world.
Protesters reportedly plan to stay suspended until Friday.
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said federal and state police are both actively monitoring the situation.
