‘Yesterday on 2nd ST in Old City Philly Brother was on his bike just reminding people at the bars to practice social distancing when this white man got mad & held him at GUNPOINT! Victim left soon after this. Can anyone identify him? HE DESERVES JUSTICE!’ a witness shared. 

The witness continued: ‘The white woman who stood up for the young black man standing in front of him as a human shield, SALUTE! She saved his life. And her mother who recorded this. Her name is Liz. In a world of Karens, BE A LIZ THIS IS HOW YOU USE YOUR PRIVILEGE!’ 

While DailyMail.com has not been able to confirm the white man’s identity, it’s believed he works at Infusion Lounge in Old City.
