Black Lives Matter bought a swanky Southern California home for nearly $6 million using donation cash, according to a report Monday.

Three leaders of the social justice movement – Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Melina Abdullah – recorded a video last June outside of the “secretly bought” home while marking the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s murder, New York magazine reported.

Cullors, BLM’s co-founder, resigned in May as the group’s executive director amid criticism over buying three homes in the Los Angeles area and another outside Atlanta.
