White Montana man facing charges after bullying protestors: 'Black Lives Matter? F--- you!'
Protestors have been demanding justice for George Floyd not only in large urban centers, but also, in small towns like Whitefish, Montana — where, according to NBC Montana reporter Maritsa Georgiou, a local man is facing disorderly conduct charges after confronting nonviolent protestors in a threatening manner.
A cell phone video of the protest (where some of the demonstrators carried signs expressing their solidarity with Black Lives Matter) shows 51-year-old Jay Snowden confronting female protestor Samantha Francine and barking, “Black Lives Matter? Fuck you! Fuck you! Fuck you!”

While Snowden was angrily telling the protestors, “Fuck all of you guys,” the largely white crowd chanted, “Peace-ful, peace-ful, peace-ful.” Video shows a police officer arriving and politely asking Snowden to leave.
Whitefish has a population of around 7800-7900.
