This troubling video shows a Black Lives Matter supporter saying “f–k blue lives” as he tears down blue ribbons put up in Staten Island in support of the NYPD.
The angry man can be seen ripping off four ribbons tied around street poles and trees, in the one-minute cellphone video taken Tuesday by 54-year-old Staten Island native Steve Worona.
Worona, a local businessman, told The Post he was driving along Victory Boulevard in Castleton Corners at around 5:45 p.m. when he noticed the man pulling off the ribbons.

It got to the point where I had to say something,” said Worona, who wound up getting into a heated back-and-forth with the man.
When Worona tried to confront the man from inside his car over why he was tearing down the ribbons, the man yelled out, “Black lives matter!” the video shows.
Worona fires back at the man saying, “All lives matter. Blue lives save all lives” and the man replies, “Whatever, bro,” prompting Worona to call the man “disgusting.”
As the two clash between “all lives” and “black lives,” the man continues to rip off the ribbons, saying “We’re not talking about all lives right now…All lives are not being persecuted right now. Black lives are.”
“F–k all lives. F–k blue lives,” the unidentified man can be heard saying.
Worona said that during the man’s tirade on police he even spit at the ribbons after he threw them to the ground.
“It was very disrespectful what he was doing,” Worona told The Post. “I couldn’t believe what was going on.”
Worona added, “When you call 911 and you need police, they don’t ask you what race you are…we gotta’ all unite against the terrorists and become one. Enough of this nonsense.”
Tensions have been running high in the Black Lives Matter movement since police killed two black men in shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota this month, sparking nationwide protests.
Well, Deuche bag has now lost his band and job and does not feel safe in Staten Island. Good for you!
