There are many different ways to protest.
As Americans across the country have emerged from their months-long coronavirus quarantines they are throwing themselves into a growing social movement to protest against police brutality and the killing of George Floyd. Some do this with chants and signs, while some take more extreme measures. And while the overriding emotion of the protests is righteous anger and a forceful call for positive social change, some are using humor to needle, roast, and mercilessly troll the cops.
Now grab a doughnut and enjoy these acts of comedic resistance.
