‘Ken and Karen’: St. Louis Couple Brandishes Weapons at BLM Protesters, Steals the Spotlight Online

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the firearms the couple were sporting were loaded, or what exactly prompted them to interact with protesters in this particular fashion.

A couple of residents of St .Louis’ Central West End neighborhood ended up gaining quite a bit of viral infamy due to the way they behaved when a BLM protest rally was passing in the vicinity of their mansion.

According to Riverfront Times, the couple, who were identified as personal injury attorneys Mark and Patricia McCloskey, shouted at the protesters who “seemed to be just passing through the gated community” while en route to Mayor Lyda Krewson’s house.

Several videos that emerged on social media also show the McCloskeys brandishing weapons – a rifle and a handgun – while interacting with the protesters.
