Stephanie Pratt is facing backlash after tweeting in support of shooting looters amid George Floyd protests across the country.
The Hills: New Beginnings star took to Twitter on Sunday over Santa Monica, California being “burned down” after many businesses were broken into and some even set on fire. Additionally, she went on to use the same language as Donald Trump and demand any looters be shot. She wrote:
“Shoot the looters – using this tragedy as their excuse to rob and burn all of our towns down.”
But it seems the 34-year-old forgot about her own past, like when she was arrested for shoplifting more than $1,300 worth of clothing from Neiman Marcus back in May 2006! The would-be MTV star’s bag was searched, where drugs were found. She was then also charged with “promoting a dangerous drug” in the third degree and “promoting a harmful drug” in the third and fourth degree. Stephanie was sentenced to three years of probation.
One fellow reality TV personality was quick to remind her! Bad Girls Club alum Angela Babicz tweeted out the mugshot from her arrest, sharing:
“Oh cause I thought the thief who shoplifted more than $1,300 worth of clothing from Neiman Marcus said some….”
It didn’t stop Spencer Pratt’s little sis from continuing to go on about the looting in Santa Monica, wondering if “the covid19 death toll rise from this?” She also posted:
According to NBC 4‘s reporting, “the looting began after a peaceful protest that included a group marching down Ocean Boulevard around noon, many holding signs protesting the killing of Floyd.”
It’s believed the looters were separate from those marching for justice for Floyd:
“Video showed many people carrying merchandise and running out of stores that had been broken into with shattered glass scattered on sidewalks and graffiti spray painted on buildings.”
The city’s mayor Kevin McKeown released a statement over yesterday’s events, including the peaceful protest:
“On Sunday, Santa Monica honored and respected, and ultimately protected, a peaceful protest against institutional racism. Yet our solidarity with those honoring George Floyd was betrayed, as was his memory, by opportunistic and organized criminals.”
He further added:
“Taking advantage of the protest as a diversion, they stole not only goods, but jobs, and challenged the resilience of our business community, which is poised for recovery from the ongoing pandemic. Sunday was one of the most distressing days in Santa Monica history. We know better than to let the looters obscure the message of the protesters, who have indeed been heard. What a small and selfish criminal element has done instead is to bring our community more closely together. We will support our local businesses to recover from this.”
Pratt, who is unable to return to London amid the coronavirus pandemic, hasn’t commented on the death and murder of George Floyd. Just saying!!!
Thoughts, Perezcious readers??
