The FBI is looking for a man who interfered with firefighter response to the 2020 AutoZone fire in Minneapolis. Police say that Da'Wadenum Per'Foration Kang, an aspiring entrepreneur, rapper, and civil rights activist, staged a Rosa Parks inspired "sit-in" atop a critical fire hydrant during the blaze. Despite pleading by both Minneapolis law enforcement and the Minneapolis Fire Department, Kang refused to disperse as flames engulfed the besieged AutoZone. A recorded livestream taken at the scene captures Kang berating officers who tried to remove him from the fire plug. "Muh dik! Bix nood muhfugga! Fuk da pole east! We wuz kangs an she yit. Worlstar," Kang shouted as Officer Bagelsworth attempted restraint.
The action was heralded by local civil rights leader Rebecca Hyphen-Cohen. "He was stunning. He was brave. He is a real mitzvah, and my fellow whites agree that this is the progress that our democracy needs," remarked Hyphen-Cohen.
Kang has been missing since the Minneapolis double-plus-unrest began in 2020, despite a warrant for his arrest. The FBI has asked the public to send any tips to [email protected]
