CNN Center in Atlanta erects fence to ward off protesters
Photos of the new barriers were posted to Twitter Friday by Townhall reporter Julio Rosas.
On May 29, a storm of protesters descended on the building, smashing windows and cheering. They were given a boost a day later by rapper Killer Mike, who called out the network in a press conference.
“I’d like to say to CNN right now, karma’s a mother. Stop feeding fear and anger every day. Stop making people feel so fearful, give them hope,” he said.
President Trump also couldn’t resist a bit of mockery at the time, retweeting a post noting that “In an ironic twist of fate, CNN HQ is being attacked by the very riots they promoted as noble & just.”
Atlanta is facing fresh unrest after the June 12 shooting death of Rayshard Brooks in the parking lot of a Wendy’s. Garrett Rolfe, the police officer who fired the fatal bullet, has been charged with felony murder.
It’s unclear exactly when the CNN barrier was erected, a spokesman for the network did not immediately respond to request for comment from The Post.
