“I can understand your concerns and the concerns of others when comes to the protests, but I think one of the biggest things, I feel like the media has weaponized the coronavirus to make it seem a lot worse than it is,” said Collins.
He went on to criticize the government for forcing businesses and communities to shutdown without providing enough resources to protect all who have been impacted financially by the virus.
Collins says he plans to organize more protests in the next coming weeks.
