A woman unleashed a homophobic tirade at a protest of the lockdown in Los Angeles.
Wearing a red Trump 2020 hoodie while carrying a dog and a megaphone, the maskless protester attacked a counterprotester with antigay language.
"You're a faggot. You're disgusting. You're disgusting. You're a new world order Satanist," she said in remarks reported by the New York Daily News.
The confrontation occurred Sunday outside the home of Barbara Ferrer, the director of the L.A. County Department of Public Health, in the Echo Park neighborhood. Last week, Ferrer announced renewed lockdown orders after the region saw a spike in COVID-19 diagnoses, which included the closure of restaurants.
The protest attracted about 50 people, most of them maskless. But the woman stood out for her vitriol.
"You're a faggot. What are you, a guy or a girl? And I'm gonna tell you something else. You're a Nazi and you're brainwashed by MK-Ultra," said the woman, referring to a mind-control experiment conducted by the CIA from the 1950s to the '70s.
The woman, who was first dubbed "Karen" by social media, a derogatory term for an intolerant person, was identified by TMZ as Gina Michelle Bisignano. Bisignano claimed she has been attacked online following her rant.
