A Trump protestor has been pictured breaking into and sitting in Nancy Pelosi's office in the US Capitol building.
The man was one of many who stormed into the huge building in Washington D.C. after Donald Trump held a campaign rally and called on his supporters to march.
According to CNN, the protestor who managed to get into Pelosi's office wrote 'we will not back down' on a folder.
CNN's Manu Raju told the network: "I want to direct you to that manila folder right there, as you can see, look in there, it says, 'we will not back down.' Someone leaving a message for the House Speaker in her suite."
After images of the protestor went viral on social media, people have been dismayed at how this managed to happen.
Actor and comedian Kevin Hart spoke out against the incident and said it would never be allowed to happen if the circumstances were different.
He wrote on Instagram: "2 completely different America's that we are living in. If these people were black they would have all been shot dead.
"This s**t is past the word sad...at this point it's pure disrespect to all people of color.
"Why can't we see this situation handled the same way that we have seen our people handled repeatedly....when the armed officers are supposed to use force they don't....S**t is f**king SAD!!!!!"
Over a million people so far have liked the image. Hart has 102m followers on Instagram.
Social media has been awash with celebrities condemning the ongoing events in Washington. President Donald Trump posted multiple tweets and videos that Twitter has deleted or restricted due to their content.
The @TwitterSafety account that posts about "significantly restricting engagement with Tweets labeled under our Civic Integrity Policy due to the risk of violence." They said that they are also "exploring other escalated enforcement actions" regarding the President's tweets.
Facebook and YouTube removed entirely a video in which President Trump referred to the people who stormed the US Capitol as "very special".
"The violent protests in the Capitol today are a disgrace," said Facebook. "We prohibit incitement and calls for violence on our platform. We are actively reviewing and removing any content that breaks these rules."
Youtube posted that they removed the video because of their "policies regarding content that alleges widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome." Trump allegedly, baselessly, in the video that he won the November Presidential Election by a landslide.
