There was a person shot tonight during the second straight day of protests in Charlotte, North Carolina over the fatal police shootings of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa and Keith Scott in Charlotte.

Fox News' Steve Harrigan took to the streets and was discussing the scene with Megyn Kelly, live, when a female protester engaged very forcefully with him for several minutes and ended up dropping the F-bomb on the air.

Harrigan was more interested in the shooting than the rally itself. The protestor, knowing she was talking to Fox News, she went off on him and said, "he was shot, just like everybody else. Black people get shot every day, right? It’s okay for that, right?”

Harrigan really got under her skin when he asked her, "If a man was shot about 50 yards over there, we don't know by who. Why are you here?"

It's no wonder she lost it after an idiotic question like that.

She replied, "Because I serve a purpose."

Explaining to the Fox reporter that protesting is a way to express distress over what has been happening in the black community, she got justifiably agitated.

She forcefully asserted that she puts herself in danger every day just by being black, "I could be at work, at school, in my car, I can still get shot - by the police!"

"We are not the same. We are human, but I am black and you are white so don't tell me not to come over here..."

Harrigan tried to respond and she said, "You are using sarcasm."

He then asked her if she knew who did the shooting, "You want to put it on video so you can put it on the news, right?"

"If we got a video so you could elaborate off it, make a fu*king fabricated story!"

When a reporter is in the middle of a protest against police violence towards the black community, maybe he shouldn't ask stupid questions.

There was no chance she knew who the shooter was.
