Bevelyn Beatty made headlines a few weeks ago by speaking with white liberals in Seattle, and now, she has gone viral by painting over the Black Lives Matter street murals.
A Black woman opposing the Black Lives Matter movement, who was arrested Saturday for dumping paint on a BLM street mural outside Trump Tower, livestreamed herself doing the same thing again at similar murals in Harlem and Brooklyn later that evening.
Bevelyn Beatty, 29, livestreamed each installment on her Facebook page. In her most recent post, Beatty recounted covering up parts of the murals with paint.
“Ya’ll, we did an all-nighter,” Beatty says in a Sunday Facebook post. “Let me tell you something, yesterday was epic.”
Beatty could be seen in the first livestream smearing paint outside the Midtown skyscraper, as police tried to apprehend her.
“Refund the police,” Beatty could be heard shouting. “Jesus matters! We will never support Black Lives Matter!”
“What are you guys doing with all that paint?” the unidentified cop asked.
“Decorating,” Beatty replied.
“Decorating? Probably not the decorating we’re thinking of, right?” the officer said. “What are you decorating?”
“I’m black,” Beatty answered. “Imma paint it black.”
She is then seen picking up one of the cans, walking past the cop, across Fifth Avenue, and to the mural, where she dumps the paint on the bright white BLM letters while yelling as several passersby look on.
“Black Lives Matter. Black Lives Matter, right?” Beatty says. “For the Black people. This is for the black people. They’re destroying business for black people. They’re looting for black people.”
“No, she says. “No. We’re not standing with Black Lives Matter. We want our police. Refund our police.”
Beatty, of Staten Island, was arrested and charged with criminal mischief but was free just hours later — before promptly going back to work.
A second video posted to her Facebook page, titled “Harlem Drive By Painting,” shows Beatty and her crew pouring paint out of the back of the same minivan as it rolls over the mural at 7th Avenue and West 125th Street.
A second, a red car, drives over the paint behind the van.
“What’s wrong with you? You’re a black woman,” a man is heard yelling at the vandals. “What the f–k is wrong with you? You’re a black woman.”
Residents are seen hurling cans and debris as they pull away.
In a third video posted early Sunday, Beatty and another woman are seen dumping black paint on another mural on Fulton Street in Brooklyn.
“Ladies and gentlemen, we’re in Brooklyn and it ain’t over,” she said. “Jesus matters. We’re taking our country back. We’re taking it back. And let me tell you something, the police need our help. They can’t s and alone. Don’t just sit by idly and watch your country go to the ground.”
“Stand with your police force, vote for Trump, vote Republican, vote for Christians, and stand up, Christians,” she continues, as an unidentified cohort adds: “Vote the ungodly, demonic, anti-Christ people out of this nation.”
Several people are seen approaching the two women and a man who is shooting video of the incident and confronting them about defacing the mural — many of them angrily — before Beatty and her crew leave around 12:40 a.m.
Beatty’s arrest for the Trump Tower vandalism was the third time the sign has been marred.
Four people were arrested Friday around 4:15 p.m. and charged with dumping blue paint on the mural. Shortly after noon on Monday, a man walked up to the mural and poured red paint over it before running off.
Around 12:45 p.m., a white man on a Citi Bike and stopped in front of the mural with a can of paint in what appeared to be another attempt.
But the man put the can down and ran off after police at the scene warned him not to continue.

Many Americans are thankful for Ms. Beatty and many others, who understand the conviction to act against the lawlessness and attacks on Christians and our society. God bless her.
