The Black Lives Matter movement has taken justified heat for quite some time. Not only is the movement infamous for spreading lies about police officers, but it’s also a well-known fact that at least some Black Lives Matter activists pocketed donations, using them to purchase fancy mansions.
However, one prominent activist of the movement, Zyahna Bryant, is under fire. Troubling accusations that she leveled against then-college student Morgan Bettinger had serious consequences.
According to new developments from the New York Post, the accusations may have been without any merit whatsoever.
This Looks Bad
Bryant and Bettinger were both students at the University of Virginia back in 2020. However, when Bryant stumbled across Bettinger, the latter was trying to drive, though found herself blocked by demonstrators.
This is when Bryant claimed Bettinger told another driver that the protesters would have made great “speed bumps.”
In actuality, Bettinger actually commented that if the other driver weren’t at the scene of the protest, then the Black Lives Matter demonstrators may have become speedbumps.
Zyahna Bryant will suffer zero consequences for lying Morgan Bettinger. No one will even question her.

Though, Bryant ran with the former narrative. This eventually led to Bettinger being slammed as a racist online before an angry mob started pushing for her expulsion from the University of Virginia.
While Bettinger did eventually wind up graduating from the university, she did so with a significant stain on her record and reputation. Now, years later, it’s coming out that Bryant didn’t ever directly hear what Bettinger said.
Social Media Reacts
Amid these latest developments, social media is not very pleased with Zyahna Bryant. Due to the real-life consequences that her lies had on Morgan Bettinger, there are calls for Bryant to face the music.
Zyahna Bryant, 22, claimed in 2020 she heard fellow University of Virginia student Morgan Bettinger threaten protesters by saying they'd 'make good speed bumps,' finally admitted to ‘exaggerating’. AKA, lying! https://t.co/hQpHT38sc2 pic.twitter.com/Sx6O541736

So far, the University of Virginia has yet to weigh in on these developments. In more disappointing news, it also doesn’t appear that Bettinger received any apology.This article appeared in New Vision News and has been published here with permission.
