A California woman has gone viral for allegedly stopping a man from boarding up a store in Santa Monica to pose with his power drill, making it look like she was helping place the barricades. The photo op has been slammed as “disgusting” in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests, which have continued across the country.

The woman, who was identified in reports as California resident Fiona Moriarty-McLaughlin, is seen in the short clip as holding a power drill and posing in front of a boarded-up store, appearing as if she was helping. Moriarty-McLaughlin then hands the man back his drill and thanks him profusely before she gets into a Mercedes and drives off.

Twitter user @ewufortheless put up the video outing the woman for “using this terrible situation to promote herself instead of the man who’s actually helping,” among other complaints.

“This lady stopped someone boarding up a store in Santa Monica so she could hold the drill for a picture, then drove away. Please don’t do this,” Ewu writes in the post.
