For the past week, social media has been flooded with images of protesters marching in the streets in protest across the country and around the world. Even though many have come out in support of these people who are calling for an end to racial violence and police brutality, others have been experiencing push back from locals in their communities on the opposing end.

In a report by TMZ, a Des Moines business owner named Jeremiah Johnson shared a video on his social media platforms of his white landlord coming to his fashion retail store, Stylent Brands where he also rents out office space, to say his lease had been terminated because he saw a video with business partners of Johnson attending a peaceful protest under the assumption that he was there looting.
