FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — A comment made by an Allen County councilman made comments about protesters at the end of their Thursday meeting that is now causing a controversy.
Councilman Larry Brown of District 4 criticizes protesters during the meeting saying "as uneducated as they are, obviously on local government, they do vote. And unfortunately, they also breed."
Brown went on to say "they do vote and they're going to be an uneducated voter."
Two Councilmen At-Large, Ken Fries and Kyle Kerley, are seen on the video lowering their heads and appeared to laugh at what Brown said.
FOX 55 has reached out to the council for comment and has heard back from Brown.
Brown said, “my comment was totally out of line and disrespectful and I apologize for that.”
