Protests have completely engulfed the United States and as they spread across the world, some unnecessary protestors are finding themselves in hot water for their actions. One man messed with NBA star J.R. Smith and got his backside handed to him.

Keep scrolling to see the video and what Smith had to say about it...

And he had a good reason why he did what he did...

But let me take you back to Monday when it all started...

Passers-by in Minneapolis witnessed and filmed 2 police officers "arresting" George Floyd for an alleged forgery incident.

Police found George matching a suspect's description in his car.

Even though he didn't resist arrest, one of the officers got him on the ground and pinned him there by pressing their knee into his neck.

This position was clearly very painful for him...

"Please, please, I can't breathe," George can be heard begging in harrowing footage as the officers remain standing. "My stomach hurts. My neck hurts. Everything hurts," he moans as passers-by begin to gather and repeatedly tell the officer to stop leaning on him.

Multiple witnesses are arguing with the officers when he starts to lose consciousness...

"He's not f****** moving!" one witness shouts as another says, "Get the f*** off him, he isn't moving!" One of the officers responds with, "This is why you don't do drugs, kids."

After around 4 minutes of the officer kneeling on him, George is completely unresponsive.

An ambulance arrives, the paramedics check his pulse and move his body onto a stretcher - he was later pronounced dead in the hospital.

George was only forty-six-years-old...

And he did not deserve to die.

The police officers involved have shown absolutely no emotion, regret, or urgency...

And a huge amount of backlash has hit the headlines.

Officers have been punished, to some extent.

via: Twitter

And in total, 4 police officers have been fired following George's death. But many feel that more should be done.

The haunting footage of George's death began circulating online...

And it has left millions of people both heartbroken and disgusted.

People all around the world have been left furious over George's unjustified death.

But many are feeling completely hopeless due to the fact that this blatant racism is happening more and more in our country.

When will this violence stop?

And when will police officers who have caused his death be properly convicted for their crimes?

Protests have been held in George's memory all around the country...

But Minneapolis has been restless for almost an entire week now.

The protests started last week and continue to spread across the nation...

Thousands upon thousands of protesters took to the streets on Wednesday to express their hurt and their anger at the injustice.

Things very quickly turned violent.

As thousands of people took to the streets, the police force became involved when shops started getting broken into and police cars were being attacked.

Police officers in riot gear pelted the crowds with tear gas and rubber bullets...

And when protestors began fighting back, things turned very ugly and the mass brawl continued into the night.

But things were far from over...

A Minneapolis Police Station was set on fire to mark the third evening of rioting. Thankfully, the station had been evacuated beforehand so nobody was seriously hurt.

The scenes have been truly apocalyptical.

And even though the protest was to demand justice for George, so many people were left fearful for their own lives in the chaotic streets of Minneapolis.

The Mayor of Minneapolis Jacob Frey has been repeatedly addressing the incident, referring to events in the videos as "wrong at every level."

"Being black in America should not be a death sentence. For 5 minutes we watched as a white officer pressed his knee to the neck of a black man. For 5 minutes," he said. "When you hear someone calling for help, you are supposed to help. This officer failed in the most basic human sense. What happened on Chicago and 38th, this last night, is simply awful."

And on the same day, he addressed the person responsible for George's death.

And this time, he called for the outright arrest of Derek Chauvin - the officer who is responsible for the death of George Floyd.

The Mayor pointed out that if any normal person had committed this horrific act, they would be in jail right now.

"Why is the man who killed George Floyd not in jail?" Frey asked during the press conference. "If you had done it or I had done it, we would be behind bars right now, and I cannot come up with a good answer to that question."

And as the protests rage on, it seems as though some people are really taking things too far...

Not the black community out here fighting for their rights, but certain members of other more privileged communities have come out just to cause chaos.

But one white guy messed with the wrong man...

NBA star, J.R. Smith had his vehicle window smashed up by someone claiming he was a "protestor." In the footage posted by TMZ, you can see the basketballer kicking and punching a man who had vandalized his property.

The alleged criminal manages to crawl away in the end...

But not after receiving one final kick for the ride home. After the incident, Smith took to his Instagram to tell his followers what happened and why he reacted the way he did.

This is what he said:

"One of these little motherf****** white boys didn't know where he was going and broke my f****** window on my truck. Broke my s***. This is a residential area. I chased him down and whooped his a**. So when the footage comes out and you see it, I chased him down and whooped his a**. He broke my window."

Many people have defended the NBA star claiming he was just "protecting his property."

One man wrote "Good, that's what should have happened. You mess with somebody's property, you get your face caved in and your teeth knocked out."

Here's the original footage:
