The LA Times profiled a professional protester

[He] is a professional protester. He has been practicing his craft since around 2006, when he vented outrage against the Roman Catholic Church outside churches in Pomona, Orange County and downtown Los Angeles. He had a personal stake in that one, given that he’d been sexually abused by a priest when he was a child, [he] said.

Since then, clients have hired him to name and shame employers and businesses in various fields — food service, the garment industry, construction workers.

Recently, he was hired by former workers for ... a vegan restaurant with two locations, one in Pasadena and another in West Hollywood.

(The restauranteer allegedly assaulted him, and is involved in all sorts of drama)
