Anti-vaccine protesters arrested in New York during organized ‘sit-in’ at Cheesecake Factory, Applebee’s
Six men at a Cheesecake Factory and four people at an Applebee’s in a mall in Queens were arrested Tuesday evening during a “sit-in” to protest against indoor dining coronavirus vaccine mandates in New York City, according to multiple reports.
A group of protesters entered the Cheesecake Factory and refused to show proof of vaccination when a restaurant employee asked them to do so, as mandated by the city, reported the local outlet The Queen’s Eagle.
