<p>Pepper, 19, was elected to serve on Decatur’s City Council in August 2020.</p><p>The controversial post was first reported by <a href=”https://www.bamapolitics.com/81062/decatur-councilman-hunter-pepper-joked-about-running-over-black-protesters/” target=”_blank”>BamaPolitics</a> this week. Responding to a news report about protesters threatening to shut down a mall over the police shooting of E.J. Bradford, Pepper wrote in 2018: “See I have to go shopping there next week and we gone play a game called red rover red rover you fools gone get ran over!”</p><p><br/></p><p class=”shortcode-media shortcode-media-rebelmouse-image”>

I expect people will come out of the woodwork for his resignation. If he doesn’t do it voluntarily, I expect people will request it.”</p><p>In response, Pepper said he made the joke when he was 16 years old and was not planning on resigning.</p><p>”I will say this, yes that post involves violence but it most definitely and sure does not involve racism, it is most definitely a misquoted article,” Pepper wrote. “I am most definitely in the wrong for making the post and the comments I made but no where and I mean NO WHERE does it say anything about racism, skin color, or targeting specific individuals.”</p><p><br/></p><div class=”rm-embed embed-media”><iframe allow=”autoplay; fullscreen” allowfullscreen=”” frameborder=”0″ height=”360″ mozallowfullscreen=”” scrolling=”no” src=”https://w3.cdn.anvato.net/player/prod/v3/anvload.html?key=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%3D%3D” webkitallowfullscreen=”” width=”640″></iframe></div>
