A US teenager has publicly shamed her mother for being punched in the face in a violent pro-Trump rally outside the US Capitol building on Wednesday (local time).
Helena Duke, 18, re-tweeted a video showing a black woman in a security uniform speaking into her phone, surrounded by a crowd wearing pro-Trump apparel.
The video shows the girl's mother reach over to grab the phone, only to be punched in the face by the woman in uniform.
The crowd breaks into chaos after the altercation.
"Hi mom remember the time you told me I shouldn't go to BLM protests [because] they could get violent… this you?" Duke said in a tweet.
Duke also tweeted a selfie of herself and her mother to confirm their relationship, adding: "For those that don't believe it's my mother…"
Five people have died and dozens have been arrested following violent protests at Capitol Hill last week, where rioters rallied against the certification of Democratic President-elect Joe Biden's win.
Duke told CTV News that she was unaware of her mother's whereabouts and was shocked when she saw the video of her mother.
"One of my cousins sent the video to me and said, 'That's your mum.'"
"There's definitely been a lot of turmoil [in my family]."
Duke says she doesn't regret publicly identifying her mother.
"At first, I was like, 'I knew it.' Then I thought, 'That's my mom.' It's very surreal, all of it… but she has to be held accountable."
The video has gained over 12 million views since it was posted to Twitter on Wednesday.
It was reportedly taken during a fight between supporters of Black Lives Matter and Trump at Freedom Plaza in Washington, according to CTV News.
