As New York City’s COVID vaccine mandate went into effect on Monday, requiring people 12 and older to show proof of vaccination to enter many indoor establishments, anti-vaxxers around the city are protesting the requirement.

On Monday night, five people were arrested after rushing inside a Burger King in Brooklyn, where they were protesting the city’s COVID vaccine mandate, according to videos posted to social media.

The protesters, who were not wearing face masks, yelled at Burger King workers, who refused to serve them because they didn’t show proof of vaccination following a demonstration before bystanders in the restaurant, the New York Post reported.

The New York Police Department was called after the protesters refused to leave. As the police arrived, they handcuffed the anti-vaxxers and took them into custody.

But bystanders criticized the NYPD for enforcing the COVID vaccine mandate, chanting, “Shame on you.”

Some Twitter users criticized the protesters for their actions, with one user saying, “They’ll eat Burger King, but won’t get vaccinated.”

The anti-vax group was charged with trespassing and remaining unlawfully inside the restaurant.

Since the New York City COVID vaccine mandate went into effect, there have been protests at the Cheesecake Factory and Applebee’s restaurants in the city.

The New York City vaccine mandate requires proof of vaccination at indoor facilities such as restaurants, bars, gyms, and cinemas.
