The Eric Sheppard Hr. challenge is an anti-American knock off of the ALS Bucket Challenge. Sheppard is a self-proclaimed terrorist, and a member of the New Black Panthers Party member.
He recently made headlines for hosting a protest on the Valdosta State University Campus. During the protest, he threw the American flag on the ground and proceeded to stomp all over it. When police attempted to stop Sheppard, he ran.
He is currently still on the run and is wanted by the Valdosta, Georgia Police Department. When the department found his backpack on campus, they learned that he was carrying a loaded gun.
Shortly after the protest was posted to social media, Erica Walker, one of Sheppard’s followers began a demonstration of her own. She asked someone to snap a photo of her stomping on the flag while standing next to a friend. The two women held up their fists to symbolize their support of the Black Panthers.
She later released a video of her stomping on the American Flag. ‘
