‘Black Lives Matter’ Movement Rallies for Dunkin’ Donuts Worker

The “Black Lives Matter” movement is standing behind a Providence, Rhode Island, Dunkin’ Donuts employee who wrote "Black Lives Matter" on a police officer's cup last week.

Monday, protesters marched up and down at Wells Avenue.

The police union criticized last week's incident and one retired officer even called for a boycott of that Dunkin’ Donuts.

The store owner has apologized, but protesters say writing "Black Lives Matters" on a coffee cup should not require an apology.

Organizers of the protest say the phrase is not anti-police, but pro-black.
