The organizer of the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville that turned deadly this weekend attempted to give a press conference on Sunday that didn't go so well for him.

Jason Kessler, a 34-year-old Charlottesville native, drew ire from the crowd as he attempted to blame police for the violence that erupted on Saturday, with people yelling, "shame," "thug," and "murderer," before eventually chasing Kessler off.

Ironically, it was the very police that Kessler had just criticized that ended up shielding him from the angry mob, eventually taking him back to the police station when his car was deemed inaccessible.

Video of the chase went viral on Twitter:
