Democrat Maxine Waters is facing quite the blow-back and criticism on social media after her harsh comments were mentioned during the Derek Chauvin trial.
Her comments were so bad that the judge on the trial said her comments could be used to fuel an appeal and lead the case to be possibly overturned.
Republicans are calling for Maxine Waters to face some sort of disciplinary action, but it's unclear what can be done, even if her comments could be considered incitement. GOP members want her kicked out of Congress, but Democrats control the Congress, so that probably won't happen.

NBC News reported on what Maxine Waters said when she was at a protest in Brooklyn Center, not too far from the location of Chauvin's trial.
Maxine Waters said, "We've got to stay on the street, and we've got to get more active. We've got to get more confrontational." When asked what happens if Chauvin is acquitted, Waters said, "We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business" - whatever "business" could be. Surely, it can be interpreted in many ways.

Chauvin's attorney asked the judge to declare a mistrial over Waters' comments, arguing that she had prejudiced the jury. Judge Peter Cahill denied the request but said that Waters' comments were "abhorrent" and that she may have handed the defense a lifeline anyway.
"I'll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned," Cahill said as arguments concluded Monday and the jury began deliberations.
