George Floyd Death: Batman Makes A Filmy Entry At Protests, The Internet Can’t Get Over It; Calls It ‘Dark Knight Rises’- VIDEO
A clip of an unidentified man dressed up as Batman turns up at one of the protests for George Floyd in the US has gone viral; here’s how the internet reacted
George Floyd’s tragic demise has sent shockwaves across the globe. It all happened after an unarmed man brutally died a police officer, held him down with a knee on his neck though he repeatedly begged for his life saying, "I can't breathe", "please, I can't breathe". Ever since then, people across 30 states in the US have been gathering up in huge numbers to protest against racism and police violence. The internet has been flooded with glimpses from the same. While some states are seeing peaceful protests, there are also examples where the protesters are facing the wrath.
An exception, however, from one such protest has left the internet in complete awe. A clip sees an unidentified man, who was dressed up as Batman, showed up at one of the Philadelphia protests. Even filmier was his entry, as he walked out of a cloud smoke, inspired by Christopher Nolan's blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises starring Christian Bale. Well, this particular video reminded netizens of the scene when the caped crusader asks Gordon to "Light up". A user, who shared the video, wrote, "Batman has arrived at a protest in Philadelphia looking for corrupt police officers."
While others expressed shock by tweeting, “Imagine you at a protest and f***ing Batman pulls up nigga I’m losing my shit,” “BATMAN AT THE PROTEST WHICH INNOCENT PROTESTOR WILL HE BEAT UP,” “**Rubs eyes. Looks away. Looks back.** ...yep, Batman really just turned up at the protests in #Philadelphia. Am I the only one repeatedly weirded-out by the world right now?!”
