A MOB of protesters were filmed surrounding a group of diners outside a restaurant in New York City, telling them to "stay the f*** out".
The protesters appeared to take issue with the fact that the restaurant was "owned by white men", telling employees as well as customers that "we don't want you here."
In the footage, which was recorded outside a Brooklyn Maya Taqueria, a man - who appears to be white - can be seen leading the group, telling them what to chant.
The demonstration took place on Tuesday, immediately following the Derek Chauvin verdict.
Nervous diners are surrounded and heckled by the protesters, who can be heard chanting: "Stay the f*** out of New York. We don't want you here. We don't want your f***ing money. We don't want your f***ing Taqueria ... owned by f***ing white men."
Maya Taqueria is a Mexican-American franchise which specialises in Mexican food.
The ethnicity of Daniel Nasser, who is cited as the operating manager and owner of Maya Taqueria, is unclear. However, staff pictures appear to show that the majority of employees as Maya Taqueria are people of colour.

Many people took exception to the video after it emerged online, and were critical of the protesters' behaviour, and their failure to grasp what they were actually doing and who they were shouting at.
"So they clearly don't know anything about the Mexican American family that own and operates Maya Taqueria," tweeted one social media user.
"Maya Taqueria isn't owned by white men. Are these people thick, or just bored?" Said another.
The protest appears to have been orchestrated by a group called NYC Shut it Down - whose website reads: 'WE DEMAND an end to racist police terror, mass incarceration, and white supremacy.'
