Protests started days ago after nearly 900 pages of leaked chats from the governor's private group chat were published. The messages between the governor and his inner circle revealed a seemingly vengeful approach to running the US territory. Protesters andeven some celebs mentioned in the chatssay Rosselló is abusive and corrupt and want him to resign immediately. But Rosselló says he won't step down. Similar protests against him have unfolded in New York, Miami and Orlando.
