Allen County Councilman Larry Brown came under fire this week after a video captured him making disparaging comments about Black Lives Matter protestors, according to local CBS affiliate WANE.

In the video, Brown can be heard saying that people who participated in recent Black Lives Matter-inspired protests are “uneducated,” adding that “unfortunately they also breed.”

“As uneducated as they are, obviously, on local government, they do vote, and unfortunately they also breed,” Brown said at a Thursday hearing on whether or not city officials should make a public statement about police brutality.

“They do vote and they’re going to be an uneducated voter,” he added.

After being caught and receiving backlash, Brown apologized for his comments. But that didn’t stop him from doubling down and claiming BLM protestors are “uneducated.

“These comments were made in response to a discussion about what role Council can play in addressing the issues before us today. I do stand by my comment that too many of the protesters seem to be uneducated in local government structure,” he said.
