Black Lives Matter Twitter activist DeRay McKesson is slamming Australian comedian Rebel Wilson for making light of “police brutality” at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.

Wearing a police uniform, Wilson took the stage Sunday, and said, “I know a lot of people have problems with the police, but I really hate police strippers.”

The Pitch Perfect actress then ripped off the uniform, revealing a “F— Tha Stripper Police” shirt. She then stated, “I hired a police stripper for my grandmother’s 80th and he wouldn’t even feel her up. I hate this injustice, hence the shirt.”

While the moment was just one of the event’s many lowlights, keyboard warrior DeRay McKesson, who routinely takes to Twitter to go after media and law enforcement agencies for their supposed racism, immediately went on the offensive, telling his 200 thousand Twitter followers, “police violence isn’t a joke.”

The activist also tweeted at Kanye West, who told MTV viewers he intends to run for president in 2020:

Last week, McKesson discussed the on-air murders of Virginia TV station employees Alison Parker and Adam Ward, and criticized “whiteness,” before the shooting was ever identified as racially motivated.

“Some say ‘disgruntled employee,’ others say ‘terrorist,’ whiteness will explain away nearly anything,” McKesson wrote, but later deleted.

Vester Flanagan, a black former employee of the station of those killed, was identified as the killer, and McKesson’s tune changed.

DeRay is best known for inserting himself into the Baltimore and Ferguson riots, and for accusing both the media and law enforcement of targeting the black community.

Monday afternoon, McKesson was busy tweeting about the murder of Harris County, TX Deputy Darren Goforth, who was shot execution-style 15 times over the weekend, as he pumped gas at a station:

Thrity-year-old Shannon Miles is suspected of targeting Goforth, simply because he was a police officer.

McKesson did not mention #BlackLivesMatter’s penchant for drawing baseless conclusions, in regards to the deaths of black men at the hands of police.
