Not everyone was a fan of the #BlackBrunch Protests  a nationwide demonstration carried out by activists from New York to Oakland to condemn state violence — that interrupted business as usual over the weekend.

In fact, at least one former NYPD officer let his followers on social media know how he really felt when he posted a photo toting a gun on Twitter.

Protesters entered swanky brunch spots to honor the lives of victims of police brutality, proving their efforts won’t be slowed down or ignored.
