In New York, a man in a Spider-Man costume appeared to protest against police brutality. He joined the crowd across the Manhattan Bridge on Tuesday evening, June 2, according to the New York Post.
In the shots, demonstrators cheerfully greet a man dressed in a tight-fitting superhero costume, who climbed onto the bottom of the bridge. Sitting on the ledge, Spider-Man greeted those present. “You get in touch with one of us, you get in touch with all of us,” someone from the crowd shouted, quoting a line from the 2002 movie Spider-Man.
However, there were opponents of the superhero who said that with this gesture he supports general unrest.
Spider-Man appeared when thousands of people could not get to Manhattan due to the increased police patrol on the bridge.
In dozens of US cities, protests against police brutality over the death in Minneapolis of a black man George Floyd as a result of a gross arrest have been held for several days. In some cases, demonstrations are accompanied by riots, clashes with the police, robberies, looting, and pogroms. Amid the riots due to the death of Floyd, a curfew was imposed in New York.
