A protester was removed from a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas on Monday night, prompting some of the Republican presidential candidate's supporters to yell racial slurs and call for the protester to be lit on fire, according to a report from Buzzfeed News.
Toward the beginning of his speech at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort, Trump brought a supporter on stage whose son was shot and killed by an undocumented immigrant gang member, according to Yahoo News. The supporter, Jamiel Shaw, said that Americans "need Trump."
While Shaw was on stage, protester Ender Austin III yelled and called for gun control, he told Yahoo News.
Austin, a Black Lives Matter supporter who attended the rally with a group called Unity Vegas, was then removed from the event by security. A video captured by Buzzfeed News reporter McKay Coppins shows Austin being detained by event security.
