Elijah “EJ” Easley Wiki – Elijah “EJ” Easley Biography
Elijah “EJ” Easley released a video today letting the world know that he’s the “pink shirt pizza guy” who confronted the Umbrella Man who was breaking windows at an AutoZone in Minneapolis. He said that since he’s been the subject of a growing conspiracy, he felt that he needed to come forward and share his story
Elijah “EJ” Easley and Pink Shirt Man
In the interview with Mac House, Easley shared that he’s now known as the man with the pink shirt and the pizza. He addressed the rumors that he was somehow involved with the unnamed umbrella man, since a video showed them walking together after he confronted the man.
On Twitter, he retweeted a tweet that refuted the online rumors. Joshua Hill had tweeted: “Elijah is a known member of the Minneapolis community and various outreach programs. #pinkpizzaguy is a hero who speaks of love and finding solutions to problems. Don’t get it twisted. #UmbrellaMan is the bad guy here.”
Although he didn’t address this in the video, the pink shirt he was wearing is part of A Mothers Love Initiative, which you can visit here. The Initiative writes on its webpage:
Our initiative is focused around Gun Violence and Domestic Violence, understanding that they are often intertwined. We recognize that a simple argument and disagreement is sometimes resolved with the use of firearms. In our approach to Violence With Guns, we recognize that a bullet destroys two families and eats at the fiber of a community. In an effort to change the narrative, we work to de-escalate those unfortunate situations. We do Boots On The Ground Outreach to communities most affected by violence and a multitude of disparities. We start the journey with outreach and prayer. From there we offer listening circles and 8-week Workshops (one day per week) for fathers and mothers, as well as group/self-esteem building outreach activities for youth ages 8-18.
That was right after their altercation behind the Autozone (there’s video of that too).
Man, pinkpizzashirtguy (Easley) is REALLY easy to research. It’s not hard. If you don’t know he’s a good guy by now, then there’s no other option but to question YOUR motives.
