Meanwhile, footage from New York showed demonstrators harassing diners at several restaurants in Rochester. On Friday, a group of activists chanting “Black Lives Matter” descended on the outdoor diners.

They announced they were there to “shut the party down.” Some diners were prompted to flee the scene as demonstrators flipped tables and chairs, shattering plates and glasses.

The restaurant has confirmed some glassware was lost and added they would be closed the following night.
