A YouTube star live-streamed himself defecating in front of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home in San Francisco.
He called it a “peaceful protest.”
Just a few hours after the incident, the man said, he was stopped by officers with the Bay Area Rapid Transit Police Department, who detained him. They were acting, he said, at the behest of Capitol Police, the agency tasked with protecting members of Congress.
Immediately following the incident, the man apologized to Pelosi on Twitter, saying, “@SpeakerPelosi I know you may not ever see this but I want you to know, I meant no foul harm yesterday when I did what I did. I’m not proud of it at all and I just would like for you to know that. I have no ill will against you or anyone in an elected officials position.”
The man, known to his audiences as “Mando,” told the New York Post that the incident started with a joke from commentators on his channel. But, he admits, it got out of hand.
