“I am sickened by those who disrupted today’s amazing @502_con event with vulgar images & racist words,” Yarmuth tweeted Saturday.
“The cowardice of these ignorant bigots—those who hide their hate behind virtual anonymity & get satisfaction from attacking those uniting in compassion—is really just pathetic,” he added.
Yarmuth also said he remains “inspired” by the leaders of the 502 con event who came together to “combat hatred and violence and refuse to back down in the face of it.”
I remain inspired by the leaders of @502_con who came together to combat hatred and violence and refuse to back down in the face of it. #502con #ItStartsWithUs

I am so proud of and inspired by the young people who organized today’s @502_con. The sick person who disrupted the event will never disrupt the commitment and will of these strong young people. I stand with them as they continue working to combat hate and violence.— Mayor Greg Fischer (@louisvillemayor) May 23, 2020
