Actress Jacqueline Guzman has lost her job because of the disgusting video she posted to TikTok this week. The New York City-based actress was canned Saturday for complaining about the city’s decision to shut down some streets for the funeral of fallen police officer Jason Rivera.
In her TikTok video, Guzman complains that the city didn’t need to be shut down for “one f… king cop” whose funeral was held Friday at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Her video went viral on the social media network.
In case you didn’t hear, the war on cops continued last week when New York City police Officer Jason Rivera was killed Jan. 21 by a suspect while responding to a domestic dispute in Harlem. Rivera’s partner Wilbert Mora, 27, also died of his wounds days after the attack.
Thousands of cops lined Manhattan’s streets to mourn the 22-year-old Rivera. But the actress didn’t like the streets being blocked, so she posted a TikTok rant filled with grotesque statements. For example, she said, “We do not need to shut down most of Lower Manhattan because one cop died for probably doing his job incorrectly.”
She went on to make a false claim by saying, “They [cops] kill people who are under 22 every single day for no good reason and we don’t shut down the city for them.”
I don’t recall this actress ranting when rioters blocked entry to some of the streets of Manhattan last year and destroyed and looted stores.
She continued with her vulgarity, “Like this is f… king ridiculous. This is f… king ridiculous. What if somebody is having a heart attack in this area? Nobody can get to them because it’s all blocked off for one f… king cop.”
There were some TikTok commenters who supported her stance. But many slammed Guzman’s complaints. They said she was being disrespectful and that she should be ashamed of herself.
“New Yorkers turned out by the thousands yesterday to help us honor our fallen brother,” New York City Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch said in a statement. “One person spreading hate cannot erase that. This kind of garbage has polluted the conversation for far too long. We need the New Yorkers who are standing with us to speak up and push back.”
I’m guessing Guzman was hoping her TikTok videos and social media presence would help bolster her career, but thankfully it appears to be just the opposite. Face to Face Films, wrote on its Facebook page this weekend that it had been made aware of an “insensitive video.” The company wrote, “Face to Face Films does not support nor can condone these comments made about fallen Officer Rivera. As a result, she [Guzman] is no longer a member of our company.”
I’m glad to see Face to Face Films did the right thing, and Guzman has deleted her video. But even so, I hope she doesn’t find work with some radical production company who supports the anti-cop movement that is destroying cities from coast to coast. Watch her video rant, click here.
