A Black Lives Matter protester who was hit by a falling statue in Virginia is in critical condition at a hospital, where doctors placed him in a medically induced coma.

Chris Green is on life support at Sentara Norfolk General hospital. Doctors put him in a medically induced coma to ease the swelling in his brain.

Green was in a crowd of Black Lives Matter activists dismantling a Confederate statue outside a courthouse in Portsmouth, Va. when the freak accident happened just after 9 p.m. on Wednesday night.

The police stood idly by while the activists used sledge hammers to chip away at a statue depicting George Pickett, a major general in the Confederate States Army.

Green was standing under the statue when the crowd pulled the statue down on him. An activist who witnessed the accident said Green's head was split open exposing his brain matter.

The witness said Green lost a lot of blood before police cleared the area to allow medics to transport him.

Green's wife, who wasn't at the protest, said her husband's heart stopped twice in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.

She told 13News Now that they have two children. She said she was upset that protesters "didn't think" when they pulled the statue down on him.

A GoFundMe page was created by Green's wife to help pay his medical bills. The page collected nearly $16,000 as of this writing.

A Bronx woman went viral on Tuesday after she shamed the looters who ransacked her restaurant during 8 days of violent protests in New York City.

The woman pleaded with rioters to help build up the black  community, not tear it down.

The woman is co-owner of Valentine Deli Corp, a sandwich shop located at 2463 Valentine Avenue in the Bronx, NY.

"You said Black lives matter. You lied! Look what you did to my store," she said.

The woman made a passionate plea to the looters to "Get a job" and "Stop stealing. Fix the neighborhood."

The woman didn't ask for money. She apparently has insurance. Men who appear to be construction workers are at the scene cleaning up.

Still, several GoFundMe accounts were created to help rebuild the store.

The largest fund raised nearly $50,000 in donations.

The protests started as a peaceful response to the killing of an unarmed Minnesota man who died in police custody.

But the peaceful protests devolved into violence and widespread looting in Democratic cities once Black Lives Matter and Antifa hijacked the demonstrations.

Black Lives Matter is an organization that campaigns against violence. Antifa, an anarchist group funded by globalist George Soros, stands for "anti-facists."

Cardi B wasn't seriously planning to start a campaign to free incarcerated Tiger King star Joe Exotic.

Joe is the subject of the Netflix series, Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness. The show follows the exploits of Joe, an eccentric tiger breeder, who ran a popular illegal zoo in Oklahoma.

While fans have taken to social media to rave about the show, rapper Cardi B took to Twitter to express her love and support for Joe after authorities sentenced him to time in prison for plotting to kill an animal rights activist and other wildlife violations.

"Bout to star [sic] a gofundme account for Joe .He shall be free," she wrote.

As the "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker's comments went viral online, she returned to the site to set the record straight, insisting, "Omg... I was just playing".

"I do love him tho and he deff needed better representation .oooooooooooooooooo here Kitty Kitty [sic]," she said.

Cardi's clarification comes after TMZ published a story revealing she wouldn't be allowed to start a campaign on the crowdfunding website GoFundMe, because the organization doesn't allow campaigns for convicted criminals.

GoFundMe pulled an account with Cardi's name attached to it and refunded the $100 it raised. TMZ added the account was not related to Cardi.

A representative from GoFundMe clarified the campaign was removed as money cannot be raised to fund the defense of inmates convicted of violent crimes.

Genea Sky, the Dallas stripper who fell 20 feet from a stripper pole and fractured her jaw, had reconstructive surgery, thanks to $32,000 in donations to her GoFundMe account.

Sky suffered a broken jaw when she fell off the pole while entertaining a packed house at the XTC Cabaret in Dallas. But, she got up and continued twerking, because a working girl has bills to pay.

Some skeptics doubted Sky injured herself during the fall, so she posted an image of herself giving a thumbs up from her hospital bed.

"Today has been a very long day. My surgery went well," Sky wrote in an Instagram post on Monday. "My jaw is currently wired shut so please refrain from calling me as of right now and bare with me on replies because my phone hasn't stopped blowing up."

Earlier, Sky thanked her fans after the video of her fall went viral.

"Originally I didn't plan on posting about this situation at all," she said in a YouTube video. "But obviously the video has gone viral and I'm getting a lot of messages asking me if I'm ok. I pretty much broke my jaw and I have to have surgery on it [on Monday]," she said. "Aside from that, I'm good."

Today has been a very long day. My surgery went well. My jaw is currently wired shut so please refrain from calling me as of right now and bare with me on replies because my phone hasn’t stopped blowing up. Everyone’s love & kind words have not gone unnoticed whatsoever and it means so much to me that all of you have blessed me and uplifted me in so many ways. I am overwhelmed in the best way by all the support. I was really nervous as this all started blowing up because people are cruel and this is a very sensitive time for me. But I never imagined so many people would stand behind me in a situation like this and that has outweighed all the negativity by far. I am beyond grateful for you all. I am in a tremendous amount of pain but i am ready for this road to recovery so I can get back to my life. I will continue to update everyone over the course of my recovery but thank you once again for EVERYTHING ??

She works hard for the money: a Dallas stripper who fell 20 feet while working a stripper pole, suffered a broken jaw, but she got up and kept twerking.

Cell phone video of the incident shows exotic dancer Genea Sky plunging 20 feet to the floor while working a pole at the XTC Cabaret strip club in Dallas.

Sky landed on her face on the stage while performing pole maneuvers for a packed house over the weekend. Even though she suffered a fractured jaw, Sky got up and continued twerking.

Sky thanked her fans after the video went viral.

"Originally I didn't plan on posting about this situation at all," she said in a YouTube video. "But obviously the video has gone viral and I'm getting a lot of messages asking me if I'm ok. I pretty much broke my jaw and I have to have surgery on it [on Monday]," she said. "Aside from that, I'm good."

A GoFundMe account set up by a friend to help pay Sky's medical bills has garnered nearly $19,000.

In 2016, a hungry 15-year-old boy named Chauncy Black approached Matthew Michael White in a Kroger parking lot. Chauncy asked Matt if he could take his groceries to his car in exchange for a box of glazed donuts for dinner.

"Something told me to go there and ask this guy if I can take his groceries to the car," Chauncy told WHBQ.

Matt later said he felt compelled to take the teen on a shopping spree in the grocery store.

When Matt dropped Chauncy off at his home in South Memphis, he was shocked by what he saw. Chauncy, his grandmother, whom he calls "mom", lived in squalid conditions and Chuancy didn't have a bed to sleep on.

Matt wrote about the encounter on his Facebook page and created a GoFundMe account. He described his chance meeting with the teenager as "God's beautiful design."

Within three months, donations to the GoFundMe account topped $342,000.

But Chauncy's story doesn't have a happy ending.

Chauncy, now 19, and his brother Timothy Black, 20, were arrested and charged with second-degree murder after one man was killed during a shootout in Cordova, Tennessee on Jan. 4.

They were also charged with tampering and fabricating evidence and reckless endangerment, according to Fox 13 Memphis.

According to an arrest affidavit, Chauncy and his brother told police a group of men drove to their house after an argument. One person in the car opened fire at the house.

Timothy and Chauncy ran inside the house, grabbed their firearms and fired back at the vehicle as it drove away at high speed.

26-year-old Kaleb Wakefield was hit by a stray bullet in a house across the street. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Chauncy and Timothy then hid their guns, which they did not have permits to carry, according to WREG.

Jaylin Edwards, the shooter inside the vehicle and his brother Tyrek Edwards were arrested and charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon and gun possession.

Chauncy's attorney, Ben Israel tells WREG that Chauncy did get most of the GoFundMe money after taxes were taken out.

"Some of the money was used to buy a home they stay in in Cordova," said Israel. "Some of the money was used to purchase lawn equipment for a lawn service company that Chauncy was running until he was arrested."

Israel is not sure how much of the money is left.

Chauncy's family said he fell in the with the wrong crowd after his story went viral in 2016.

Back in the day, a single mother with 6-12 kids lived the good life while collecting government checks for each child. Sadly, those gravy days are over.

A mother of 11 is facing eviction after she was laid off before Christmas. Jessica Sumlin, of Whitehaven, near Memphis, is struggling to find work to support her 11 children.

"If I had family to go to - like immediate family - I'd go and ask them, but I don't have any immediate family. It's just me and my kids," she told Fox13Memphis.com.

On her GoFundMe page, Sumlin said she and her kids lived with her mom until she got pregnant again.

"I had a newborn so we couldn't stay there, and during this time I got a storage... which, after renting for a month, they informed me that someone had broke in and stole all me and my children's things."

She said kindhearted friends helped her move into an empty house and she's asking for donations to fix up the home. The house she moved into has black mold and no heat.

According to Fox13Memphis.com, Sumlin was laid off after 12 years at Taco Bell because she was a high-risk pregnancy. She said she found a temporary job in November, but she was laid off again just days before Christmas. She tried applying for jobs to make ends meet.

Now she is close to eviction and her lights are due to be cut off for nonpayment.

"My rent man constantly calling and texting me saying that I'm past due in rent.

A GoFundMe page raised over $9,800 of a $2,000 goal.

Twitter users weighed in with their own opinions about her situation.
