Angry protesters reportedly called for “burning down the Alamo” according to various social media posts.
People saying “burn down the Alamo” WHAT THE FUCK. Bitch get the FUCK out of San Antonio Texas if you don’t fucking have respect. LEAVE. This has nothing to do with what y’all are protesting. OMG
