New York governor calls outdoor concert 'illegal and reckless,' but allows mass protests to continue

New York governor Andrew Cuomo has now launched an investigation into what he called an "illegal and reckless" concert put on by The Chainsmokers over the weekend. This comes as George Floyd protests continue throughout the city without legal action.

The Chainsmokers took the lead at a drive-in concert in the Hamptons on Saturday, but have faced heavy criticism after it was revealed that fans did not remain in their cars during the show, according to the Independent.

Cuomo tweeted a video of the concert that clearly showed attendees outside their vehicles and in close proximity, saying that "videos from a concert held in Southampton on Saturday show egregious social distancing violations."

He continued by saying that he was appalled and that "the Department of Health will conduct an investigation," concluding that "we have no tolerance for the illegal and reckless endangerment of public health."
