Some fed-up drivers were seen using the shoulder of the highway to go around the demonstrators — while one angry motorist got out of his car to confront them, video shared on social media showed.

“You are losing people to your cause because of this … Think a little bit. You are causing people to actually hate you,” he yelled at a demonstrator filming him as they sat in a car after cops showed up, according to footage shared on X.

“Go f–k yourself. Forty-five thousand people dead,” the protester yelled before calling him a “genocide sympathizer.”
