Aggressive crowd of BLM protesters accost white diners outside DC restaurants

A large crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters have accosted white diners outside several Washington, D.C. restaurants, demanding that they raise their fists to show solidarity with the movement. 

Footage showing the demonstrators aggressively yelling at one woman in the Adams Morgan neighborhood went viral on social media and sparked a widespread backlash.  

Many accused the protesters of acting like an 'aggressive mob' and using 'intimidation tactics' to order diners into submission.  Responding to the footage, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough described the activists as 'horrible people'.

The footage shows the woman, identified as Lauren Victor, being shouted at by white protesters after she refuses to raise her fist. 

The group crowded Victor's table, with two female demonstrators leaning down and shouting in her face. 

'Are you a Christian?' one of the women shout, outraged by the fact Victor was unwilling to raise her fist in solidarity.  

'No justice, no peace!' the large group of activists then start yelling.

'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.'
