The New North End Neighborhood Planning Assembly was “Zoom bombed” Wednesday night by individuals who used racist and vulgar language.
Secretary of State Jim Condos was speaking to the Ward 4 and 7 NPA about voting during the coronavirus pandemic when he was interrupted by an individual who told him to “shut the fuck up.” Another individual then used a racial slur.
The interruption lasted about a minute.
Other virtual events in the state have been interrupted during the pandemic by “Zoom bombers,” including invaders who drew swastikas on the screen at a Democratic lieutenant governor candidate forum and a hacker who screenshared pornographic material at a Vermont Senate Committee on Agriculture Zoom hearing in early April.
