SMH!!! Racists are getting so bold these days…

Couple Pokes Fun At Eric Garner Choking Death In Background Of Live Protest Report

We’ve already been made very aware that Black lives don’t exactly matter to everyone — but mimicking and joking about homicide ON CAMERA is a new low. Via MailOnline:

A couple in New York wandered into a reporter’s live shot from Wednesday night’s Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting then thought it would be funny to re-enact the final moments of Eric Garner’s life.

The outrageous prank is made all the more shocking by the fact that WPIX reporter Allison Kaden was on the scene to report on the protest at the ceremony.

As she described the night’s peaceful demonstration, a man in a suit and a woman noticed they were on camera.

The man grabbed the woman around the neck and then, as it dawned on the woman what her friend was doing, she played along and put her hands up.

They both then laughed and walked off camera.

Kaden finished her segment non-the-wiser. The in-studio anchors didn’t seem to notice, either.

However, the folks at Deadspin picked up on the sick joke and the angry comments were sure to follow.

With good reason. Garner died following his altercation with police due, at least in part, to the chokehold put on him by Officer Daniel Pantaleo.

They really think this isht is funny. We’d be interested to see what happens when and if someone outs their identities, social media accounts, companies of employment…

Wonder how funny it would be to them then?
