Michael Bloomberg spoke about the moment on Sunday when protesters turned their backs to him as he addressed the historic Brown Chapel AME Church in Selma, Alabama.
“Look, we have a democracy,” Bloomberg told CNN’s Don Lemon. “You don’t have to, you can protest if you want. I don’t think you can, you should disrupt everybody else’s rights. But in all fairness, they stood up had their backs to me, it’s not the first time in my life I’ve been protested, ain’t going to be the last.”
“They have a right to say what they want to say,” Bloomberg said.
