Amid the rioting that broke out in Seattle following protests over the death of George Floyd while in custody of Minneapolis police, of a woman was caught on tape stealing a cake from the Cheesecake Factory.
The gatherings and marches, which had been peaceful up to that point, turned violent, police tell KIRO-TV, with the crowd “throwing bottles and Molotov cocktails, setting fires, breaking windows and looting businesses.”
A bunch of stores were reportedly vandalized and looted, and windows were smashed, including the Cheesecake Factory.
The video, captured by the station's camera crew, shows the masked protester walking away from the store carrying an entire cheesecake. The clip quickly went viral.
Equally as funny is the newscaster who, after just reporting that the Cheesecake Factory had been looted, says it’s “unclear” where the protestor may have gotten the cake.
