There is widespread protest taking place across the US and other parts of the world to condemn racism and demand justice for the recent death of George Floyd.
During one gathering in Los Angeles, California, on Sunday, Fiona Moriarty-McLaughlin filmed a protester spray-painting the phrase “Black Lives Matter!” across a billboard for hair-care brand Ouai.
Fiona Moriarty-McLaughlin Twitter bio says she is a commentary writer at The Washington Examiner. Along with the video, she wrote: “BREAKING: As if vandalizing all the buildings in LA wasn’t enough @Blklivesmatter has taken to the billboards as a crowd of rioters roars in approval. #GeorgeFloyd #LARiots.”

A few hours later, celebrity hairstylist and Ouai founder Jen Atkin replied to Fiona Moriarty-McLaughlin tweet.
“Made our sign every better,” she wrote in response to Moriarty-McLaughlin’s video.Jen Atkin Hair✔@jenatkinhair
The brand founder also posted a photo of the billboard on Instagram expressing her support to protest against racism, writing: “I would have climbed up there myself ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 #blacklivesmatter.”
Moriarty-McLaughlin’s tweet is unavailable now.
In another incident one woman posted a video on Twitter where it seems one woman steps out of her car and pretends to help board up business (can be for social media post ). People have taken to Twitter to criticize the act.
One person identified the woman in video as Fiona Moriarty-McLaughlin in her tweet. “
The woman who posted the video wrote on Twitter in frustration “You know what? I’m… I think I’m gonna put Twitter away for a few minutes before I throw this phone across the room.”
Another person commented”
Wait – some woman stopped so she could pretend to help rebuild? And then post on social media?
That’s the phoniest photo op I’ve seen since… well, since @realDonaldTrump posed with the upside-down Bible a few hours ago.”
