A YouTuber was detained after he filmed himself defecating on the driveway of Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco mansion.
The livestream shows a man known as “Mando” walk to the House speaker’s home, stand on the driveway, and survey his surroundings. He then squatted and defecated in front of the home, before exclaiming to viewers, “That was for President Trump.”
The video, “Poopalosi,” was watched 19,000 times before it was removed from YouTube. He called the incident a “peaceful protest.”
Mando said that his comment about Trump was “satire,” and he supports the president’s accomplishment, but fears “America is becoming one big burned-down city.”
In a subsequent video, Mando said he was detained by officers of the Bay Area Rapid Transit Police force.
“It was scary, man,” he said. “They asked me about Kamala Harris, and about how I joked on the stream that if she lived in San Francisco, I’d s— on her house too. … They weren’t f—ing playing.”
“It was scary! I thought my life was over in that moment,” he told his viewers. “They kept asking me, ‘Are you this? Are you that? Are you antifa?’ And the Capitol Police were definitely watching my channel, because I could hear them on the radio like, ‘Tell him to turn off the stream.’”
A BART police spokesperson told the New York Post that law enforcement officials do not have additional information to release on his detainment.
Mando began his YouTube channel after becoming homeless and posts hourslong livestreams of his daily life. He said that COVID-19 has made his life more difficult because stores and businesses are closed, and he has trouble finding public bathrooms amid the lockdowns.
“I’d been hunting for a toilet all week, and the joke came up in the comments on one of my streams that ‘Hey, you should take a crap at Pelosi’s house,’” Mando told the New York Post, adding that he “just couldn’t hold it anymore.”
Mando apologized to Pelosi in a now-deleted tweet, writing that he wasn’t proud of his actions, and he harbors no ill-will toward the Democratic politician.
“@SpeakerPelosi I know you may not ever see this but I want you to know, I meant no foul harm yesterday when I did what I did,” Mando said. “I’m not proud of it at all and I just would like for you to know that. I have no ill will against you or anyone in an elected officials position.”
