Protesters calling for justice in the death of George Floyd moved out of downtown Los Angeles and to the city of Beverly Hills on Saturday evening.
Among the protesters were the stars of ‘Creed’, Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson, and ‘Ridiculousness’ host, Steelo Brim.

Sources say what started out as a beautiful protest quickly became an ugly riot when the cops came and started to shoot rubber bullets at the protesters. There were also reports of apparent looting but it appears the individuals who attempted to loot stores on Rodeo Drive were separate from the Black Lives Matter protesters who initially organized a peaceful gathering in L.A. and surrounding areas.
