Former Los Angeles City Chief of Staff Eric Garcetti described the city’s Black Lives Matter chapter as “annoying,” according to a leaked leak.

In an October 2016 email, Ana Guerrero – who still works in an advisory role for Garcetti’s office – wrote that people praising the mayor “were not as annoying as BLM, but getting close,” Vice reported. The Black Lives Matter movement and its anti-police protests grew in popularity in 2016 after Alton Sterling and Philando Castile died in Louisiana and Minnesota, respectively.
