Authorities arrested 29-year-old Bevelyn Beatty, a black woman who opposes the Black Lives Matter movement, on Saturday after she dumped paint on a BLM street mural. Beatty livestreamed herself on her Facebook page doing the same thing again at similar murals in Harlem and Brooklyn that evening.
“Ya’ll, we did an all-nighter,” she says in a Facebook post on Sunday. “Let me tell you something, yesterday was epic.”
In the first livestream, Beatty is seen smearing paint outside the Midtown skyscraper.
“Refund the police,” Beatty shouted. “Jesus matters! We will never support Black Lives Matter!”
According to police, one officer slipped on the paint and injured his head and arm.
Beatty was arrested and charged with criminal mischief but was later released. She was later back to work at other murals.

In a second video with the title “Harlem Drive By Painting,” Beatty and her crew are “pouring paint out of the back of the same minivan as it rolls over the mural at 7th Avenue and West 125th Street,” reported The New York Post.
A red car drives over the paint behind the van.
“What’s wrong with you? You’re a black woman,” a man yelled. “What the f–k is wrong with you? You’re a black woman.”
In a third video, Beatty and another women are dumping black paint on another mural on Fulton Street in Brooklyn.
“Ladies and gentlemen, we’re in Brooklyn and it ain’t over,” she said. “Jesus matters. We’re taking our country back. We’re taking it back. And let me tell you something, the police need our help. … Don’t just sit by idly and watch your country go to the ground.”
“Stand with your police force, vote for Trump, vote Republican, vote for Christians, and stand up, Christians,” she continued.
