Jesse Watters Was Apparently Trolled By YouTuber Posing as Antifa Member Named ‘Kevin’
Fox News’s Jesse Watters interviewed who he thought was an anonymous “Antifa” member but is actually a YouTuber.
On Saturday’s episode of Watters World, Watters introduced his audience to “Kevin,” a member of the Boston antifa branch. He brought “Kevin” on because he took credit for an anonymous open letter that was published and he allegedly wrote, “It is time for liberals and progressives to lose their illusions about the anarchist movement and our tactics because, quite frankly, you have no one else willing to fight for you.”
Watters confronted him about his call for more violence, but he pushed back saying the violence is meant to be self defense from “racists and xenophobes” that “attack” him and his group at peaceful protests and accused “right wing infiltrators” of being responsible for all the riots and vandalism that have occurred and trying to place blame on the protestors.
When Watters asked whether the police horse that was stabbed by an antifa member was a “racist Trump supporter,” “Kevin responded by saying “yes,” calling the horse a “tool of the police” that have been “increasingly intolerant” during the Trump presidency.
He also called on others to “bash the fash” (as in fascists).
But it turns out that “Kevin” has a heavy internet presence. He goes by BG Kumbi and he has over 27,000 followers on Youtube. He uploaded his “Fox News debut” and he himself put it in the “comedy” category.
Some of the top comments include “this is f**king real,” “I never knew kumbi could troll on this level,” and “this is actually real lmao.”
Michael Cernovich, a popular alt-right social media personality, made the observation on Twitter.
BG Kumbi is a notorious troll. This was a stunt, a work of performance art. https://t.co/ttHFar9llb

Exactly one month before the interview, he announced on his Youtube channel that he was joining antifa.
