Protesters in Atlanta used this rap song to rally against Trump

For the record, there was no fight out and they didn’t punch anyone’s lights out.

Demonstrators in Atlanta, Ga., on Saturday marched through the streets chanting their own version of Ludacris’ “Move B—h” to peacefully protest President Trump’s “both sides” are to blame rhetoric, racism and hate a week after the events in Charlottesville, Va., that left one woman dead.

“Move, Trump, get out the way,” the protestors sang. “Get out the way, Trump, get out the way.”

It’s estimated that about 2,000 people participated in the march that made its way from downtown Atlanta east to the final resting place of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Counter-protesters eclipse white nationalists at Boston rally

And one famous onlooker expressed his support through social media. Perched in a building overlooking the rally in the streets below was Ludacris himself.

“Move Trump,” the rapper captioned his video of the march, complete with a pair of fist emojis.

Atlanta was just one city that organized a protest to speak out against the torch-wielding white nationalists who rallied in Charlottesville. Thousands of people took over New Orleans’ French Quarter and an estimated 30,000 took to the streets of Boston to march against a “free speech” rally where 33 people were arrested.

Similar anti-hate-themed gatherings were held in Dallas and Austin, Tex., Portland, Ore., Durham, N.C. and Hot Springs, Ark., throughout the weekend.
