Nearly 200 protesters carrying plastic pitchforks drove into the Hamptons in a caravan on Thursday to protest New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s plans to close the budget gap by cutting school funding.

An investigation is underway into a concert held over the weekend in the Hamptons for violating social distancing rules.

New York prohibits non-essential gatherings of more than 50 people. The concert, which featured The Chainsmokers electronic duo, was permitted for 3,000 people.

Governor Andrew Cuomo called the concert “a gross violation of common sense."
