Tobias Harris publicly called for the resignation of Montgomery County Commissioner Joe Gale, who referred to Black Lives Matter as a hate group in a press statement issued Monday. Floyd, a 46-year-old African American, died while since-fired Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pinned him with his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.
He added that nearly every major American city was “Ravaged by looting, violence and arson.”
“The perpetrators of this urban domestic terror are radical left-wing hate groups like Black Lives Matter,” wrote Gale, who is a Republican.
Harris and teammate Matisse Thybulle attended a peaceful protest Saturday afternoon that was organized by the Philadelphia chapter of Black Lives Matter.
