American tennis player John Isner was outraged by the radical actions of the protesters who took to the streets of the United States after the murder by the police of a black man George Floyd.
Isner retweeted a video showing a church set on fire by protesters and wrote: “The Church of St. John is a historical landmark, which is 205 years old, a place of healing. Just a shame. Arrest these anarchist losers. ”
Outraged subscribers supporting the protests attacked the tennis player, and he explained his point of view in the replays.
“You misunderstood me. I do not resent this more than the death of Floyd and Arbury. But I am angry that the riots desecrate the memory of men and women who are victims of terrible cruelty. Small local companies suffered from coronavirus, and now small companies across the country have suffered from protests.
How does this help achieve justice for George Floyd? This is a disgrace to a good person. Peaceful protests are drowned out by this chaos. Can’t I be outraged by both? ”
