Things didn’t go quite as planned on Saturday at progressive conference Netroots Nation.
Democratic 2016 candidates Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley both found their comments loudly disrupted by a raucous group chanting “Black lives matter.”
Dozens of the demonstrators drowned out Sanders and O’Malley, who were sitting down for interviews with Jose Antonio Vargas.
According to NBC, Vargas eventually caved to protestors and let one get on stage and seize a microphone.
At one point, they chanted back and forth, "If I die in police in custody!...Burn everything down! That's the only way mother******* like you listen!"
O’Malley tried to assuage the crowd by saying “Black lives matter, white lives matter, all lives matter.” The comment drew loud boos.
O’Malley later apologized for his remarks, saying, "That was a mistake on my part and I meant no disrespect. I did not mean to be insensitive in any way or communicate that I did not understand the tremendous passion, commitment and feeling and depth of feeling that all of us should be attaching to this issue.”
“If you don’t want me to be here, that’s OK,” said a clearly annoyed Bernie, after touting his 50 years fighting for civil rights.
