There was plenty of action both inside and outside Barclays Center Monday night with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on hand to watch the Brooklyn Nets take on the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Using #RoyalShutdown to gather support, protestors of the Eric Garner case gathered outside the arena. The demonstrators staged so-called die-ins, blocked traffic and spilled into a nearby mall.
Now, it's unclear why protestors used Prince William and Princess Kate's visit as a means to stage demonstrations outside Barclays Center. Though, it likely has a lot to do with how much attention the couple typically attracts.
