Well-known BLM activist, Maya Echols, warned white America that if former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin was not convicted of murder for the death of George Floyd, there will be the harshest of consequences.
“If George Floyd’s murderer is not sentenced, just know that all hell is gonna break loose,” Echols said in a since-deleted TikTok video, which had been already saved and circulated by other social media users before she could take it down. “Don’t be surprised when building are on fire. Just sayin’.” Echols added. Signed by IMG Worldwide model and with nearly half a million followers on TikTok later, this isn't the first time Echols has posted about the movement, or how she likes to rile up conservative shoppers at the local grocery store.
“My new favorite guilty pleasure is going to the grocery store with this mask on,” she starts by saying in a video, as she can be seen taking off the said Black Lives Matter mask. “I live in a predominately White area …. and the looks I get from these conservatives are crazy, like y’all would be shocked. Like, the death stares I get. It’s so funny to me, though." Echols added: "Like, I get so much pleasure out of seeing somebody upset because I’m saying my life matters,” Echols continues. “Like, it makes me laugh. And then I just look at them dead in their face, and usually I’m taller than them, so I just look down at them, and I look them in their eyes, ’cause they’re not gonna say anything to me.”
