“What I saw in those videos was highly inappropriate,” Bowser said at a press conference on Wednesday, as reported by WTTG.

“It was likely against the law if they were on private property.

“But more importantly I don’t think it had anything to do with demands for social justice.”

Bowser encouraged people to call police if such incidents occur in the capital city.

“There should be enforcement any time the law is broken, and we would encourage any diner or restaurant to call the police immediately,” Bowser said, as reported by the New York Post.

Videos emerged of activists confronting diners, as they chanted “No justice, no peace!” and “White silence is violence!”

Lauren B. Victor, a 49-year-old urban planner who said she supports Black Lives Matter, was seen surrounded by dozens of protesters in a video as she dined in Washington DC.

Demonstrators yelled at her, demanding she raise her fist in the air as she tried to speak with them.

Some Black Lives Matter activists have claimed that people who do not raise their fists in protest are “white supremacists.”

She told The Washington Post that she felt “under attack” in the incident.

Bowser has been supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement – and ordered a massive mural to be painted along the road to the White House.

She also deemed the area where the “Black Lives Matter” lettering appears to be renamed “Black LIves Matter Plaza.”

“There are people who are craving to be heard and to be seen, and to have their humanity recognized, and we had the opportunity to send that message loud and clear on a very important street in our city,” Bowser told reporters in early June.

She said the city “raises up” values of Black Lives Matter and black humanity matters.

Black Lives Matter demonstrations have seen a renewed energy after the shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin.
