The Mannequin Challenge can be a bunch of things, but activism is not usually the first one that comes to mind. Well, that’s about to change. 

In this powerful video, this Mannequin Challenge challenges police brutality to create a memorable statement of protest for the Black Lives Matter movement. From Trayvon Martin to to Colin Kaepernick, the video is filled with references to the fight for civil rights, inspiring a call to action and, ironically, movement. Using audio from police shootings of unarmed people, the video is a sharp departure from the typical Mannequin Challenge, but may be the only one that is required viewing.

Check out the original tweet:

Yep.. they won.. game over!

For about $20 at Albuquerque Italian restaurant, Paisano's, you can buy yourself some bad judgment.

The owner, Rick Camuglia, insists he wasn't trivializing the Black Lives Matter movement, but just trying to push his "tuna dish with black olive tapenade."

Understandably, Twitter erupted trying to explain where he went wrong:


The shirt and hat are still available for sale here if you don't get it either.

Man blames Black Lives Matter for vandalizing his truck, but the twist is, he did it.

A man in central Texas reported his truck was vandalized by Black Lives Matter supporters Sept. 9, because he had decorated the vehicle with messages saying "Police Lives Matter".

Well, according to the local FOX News affiliate, it turns out that was a complete lie.

Scott Lattin, a disabled veteran, told Whitney police on Sept. 8 someone tagged his truck with "Black Lives Matter" and other graffiti because he displayed pro-police messages and symbols on his pickup.

But on Friday afternoon, Whitney police arrested Lattin on a misdemeanor charge of making a false police report.

Apparently, Lattin made the police report about the spray painting, then further vandalized his own truck before the news got the story.

Smart move.

"We had initial video when the officers took the report and then when we saw your story on Channel 4. When we looked at those two videos, there were some differences in those and that led us to take the investigation into a different direction," Bentley said.

Bentley said when they took the report there was no damage to the inside of the truck. But when FOX4 showed up, Lattin showed that the glove box was ripped off and the seats slashed.

Police arrested Lattin for making a fake police report and the damage totaled the vehicle, adding up to $5,000.

So, I guess the joke's on him??
