(Imagine being in law enforcement and having to determine if viral posts about "Adrian's Kickback" were real or a joke.)
Officers used less-lethal weapons to disperse a crowd estimated at more than 2,500 that responded to a viral video posted Wednesday on the TikTok page adrian.lopez517, which included the caption "pop out 'n celebrate my bday.''
People all over the country responded, saying that they were traveling to Huntington Beach so that they could party.
Less lethals deployed. Lots of folks running away, going about one block down to another area where there is a lot of partying. pic.twitter.com/XhN6544eK1— Sean Carmitchel (@ACatWithNews) May 23, 2021
