Beastie Boys’ Ad Rock was one of hundreds who gathered at Brooklyn Heights’ Adam Yauch Park on Sunday in response to the anti-semetic, pro-Trump symbols that were spray-painted on the children’s playground.
Adam Horovitz, better known by his stage name Ad Rock showed up to decry the rise of white supremacy in the States, and in this specific case, the defacing of the park dedicated in his late bandmate’s name.
“If you’re able to volunteer, volunteer…if you’re a musician, write that anthem,” Horovitz stated from a loudspeaker. “If you’re a writer, write. Take what you’re good at, and what you truly enjoy, and lend your services to the causes you care most about. ‘Cause we can’t, and we won’t, and we don’t stop.”
