The Antagonizers


Based out of Texas, this crew traveled to many rallies around the United States, badly mistaking real life for an internet forum. In Houston, a militaman put Will Fears in a headlock as he was trying to start trouble, exclaiming, “but what about the memes?!” In Charlottesville, these men were violent and antagonistic, often trying to provoke counterprostesters into violence. Finally, in Gainesville, trouble caught up to them when one of them, Tyler Tenbrink, fired a gun at someone and was subsequently charged with attempted murder. The younger Fears brother, Colton, took a plea for being an accessory, and has agreed to testify against his former friend Tyler. Will’s charges in Florida were dropped, but he’s facing trouble of his own in Texas.
