You dildon't want to miss out on this protest.

In response to a new law passed in Texas that allows students to carry concealed guns on campus, some students at The University of Texas at Austin are planning a very unique way to speak out.

A Facebook event using the hashtag #CocksNotGlocks is encouraging students to strap sex toys onto their backpacks August 2016 to protest.

Event organizer Jessica Jin had this to say about the protest:

"'You're carrying a gun to class? Yeah well I'm carrying a HUGE D*LDO,'" she said in the group's description. "Just about as effective at protecting us from sociopathic shooters, but much safer for recreational play."

If you say so, Jessica.

A local Fox news affiliate in Baltimore has apologized for erroneously using a video clip of a protest to illustrate anti-police sentiment calling it an "honest misunderstanding."

In the video above, from a WBFF Fox45 news segment, a woman is heard chanting "kill a cop," which would indeed be startling if it were true, especially in light of the recent shootings in New York. But it's not.

Unfortunately for everyone involved, this is taken completely out of context, as many pointed out.

The original clip is from a "Justice For All" March in Washington, D.C., and the woman featured in the video, Tawanda Jones, is not asking for anyone to be killed.

"We won't stop! We can't stop! Till killer cops are in cell blocks!" she says as you can hear below (at 0:42).

Jones' brother Tyrone West died in 2013 while in police custody.

WBFF interviewed Jones following the screw up, and she said she is baffled as to why they edited the clip the way they did.

"You'd have to be an idiot – someone that hates – to say 'kill somebody,' especially some cops that I need to protect my family," she said. "Nobody deserves to be brutally murdered."
