Violent Mob of Trump Supporters Attacks Black Woman in Los Angeles

HeadlineJan 08, 2021

As insurrectionists stormed the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, hundreds of fervent Trump supporters gathered for local rallies around the country. In Los Angeles, police are investigating after images circulated of a Trump mob attacking a Black woman near City Hall. The young woman, Berlinda Nibo, was walking home when she came upon the rally and started documenting it on her phone. Dozens quickly surrounded her, demanding to know who she voted for and to take off her face mask. She was then brutally attacked by the group of white supremacists, who shoved her, pulled out her hair extensions and pepper-sprayed her in the eyes. The bearded man pictured holding her from behind was one of several witnesses who intervened to help Nibo escape the out-of-control mob.
