Trump fanatic launches into a one man 'All Lives Matter' protest at Brooklyn coffee shop, demanding that they remove BLM sign - and claims the coronavirus is a HOAX

An ardent Trump supporter decided to protest a Brooklyn coffee shop's decision to post a Black Lives Matter sign, while also claiming that COVID-19 is staged. 
Abraham 'Avrumy' Knofler launched into the tirade over the 'Black Lives Matter' sign that was posted inside the Burly Coffee in Bed Stuy on Thursday morning at around 9.30am. 
'So, this was my morning,' Rohan Singh, a man who filmed the spectacle, said on Twitter. 'I just wanted to get some coffee. But this racist a**hole decided it's time to educate us and 'make a protest' about how 'all lives matter.''
Singh had walked up to the confrontation on Koscuizko Street and immediately began filming Knofler once he refused to leave after berating the barista, Gothamist reports.

He described the man as being 'nonviolent' but added that 'it was a horrible situation for the barista who was trapped there. I feel really bad for her.'
'From what the barista told me, the man specifically walked up to complain about either the sign and/or the mask policy,' Singh said. 'The barista was already trying to get the man to leave when I arrived. I stepped up and harshly told him to leave as well, but he wouldn't. So then I just started filming.' 
The full video of the ordeal was first posted on Reddit but has since made its rounds on various social media channels. 
In the clip, a concerned Bed Stuy resident can be heard telling Knofler that he could be heard from upstairs. 
'This sign caused the whole problem,' he says, pointing to the sign. 'The sign is causing the problem, not me'
'This sign caused the whole problem,' he says, pointing to the sign. 'The sign is causing the problem, not me' 
Others can be heard telling the man to leave the barista alone and to move along so that they can buy from the coffee shop. 
'This sign caused the whole problem,' he says, pointing to the sign. 'The sign is causing the problem, not me.' 
As multiple people point out that the man is not wearing a mask, the barista points to another sign that says that people who don't have masks can't have service.
Knofler begins spewing conspiracy theories about Governor Andrew Cuomo being responsible for deaths in the state.

'The pandemic is a hoax, only sheep like you wear the mask, because you've been told whatever you've been told, but you don't use your head, because you're stupid,' he shouts at the crowd.

He asks the group if saying 'All Lives Matter' is racist, to which the barista asserts that he is the the one that is racist. 
'This is the most racist thing out there, I'm not a racist... This is offensive and I want you to take off this sign,' he asserts.

The employee retorts back: 'I don't understand why this is so offensive to you, to see something saying that "Black Lives Matter" It's not saying that all lives don't matter, it's just saying that Black lives Matter because they haven't mattered in this country ever.'
