Hundreds of party goers gathered under a bridge in New York City for a late-night rave, violating social distancing guidelines.
On Saturday night, a rave took place under the Kosciuszko Bridge in Brooklyn, where people danced to DJ Mazurbate . Some people wore masks, including the DJ however footage of the event on social media showed a large violation of social distancing guidelines. According to sources, the event was supposed to be a Black Lives Matter protest before it got out of control.
One guest held a black T-shirt that read “F–k 12,” an anti police phrase, and another held signs that showed support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The event comes just a week after Gov. Andrew Cuomo criticized a concert held in the Hamptons, where 3,000 attended and violated social distancing guidelines.
“We have no tolerance for the illegal & reckless endangerment of public health,” he said.
Mike Simonetti, another musician, later tweeted he was asked to DJ for the event but had declined due to the coronavirus pandemic.
‘OK so i was asked to play that party under the bridge last night, and i turned it down. My father died alone because of Covid. My mother was not allowed to see him until hours before he could die in hospice.’ Simonetti wrote.
‘I saw it as a disrespect to both my mother and everyone else who is going through what she went through. Imagie (sic) being married for 50 years and not being able to see your husband on his deathbed?’
