George Floyd protestors deface CNN headquarters logo in Atlanta

A video from CNN affiliate WGCL showed protesters mounting the CNN sign at the network’s headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, and raising a Black Lives Matter flag.

One protester was seen using spray paint to write #Love on the sign and others were also seen writing on the sign.

Protesters also torched an American flag outside CNN Center in Atlanta and broke the glass near the entrance of the center.

The exterior of the CNN Center in Downtown Atlanta was heavily vandalized during demonstrations Friday evening over the death of George Floyd, a Minneapolis man who died while in police custody.

Protesters could be seen climbing on top of the giant CNN letters outside the building. Graffiti littered the sides of the building. At one point one of glass doors to the front of the building was shattered by a demonstrator.

Bottles were being thrown at police working to maintain order and prevent further damage.
