A drag queen and a transgender activist were arrested for their bad behavior during Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee’s visit to Memphis Wednesday, Memphis police tell KWAM.

Lee was speaking at a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new YMCA in Whitehaven when the two men started screaming, “Bill Lee is a liar and a fascist,” as captured by WMC’s Walter Murphy.

Memphis police told KWAM one of the protesters was arrested for disorderly conduct, the other was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting police.

Both were issued misdemeanor citations and were released on the scene, according to the MPD.

Lee’s visit to the Bluff City came just days after he promised to sign the drag show bill and the bill that prohibits gender-changing procedures on minors.
