A flamboyant Brooklyn, bishop was robbed in the thick of his live-streamed service on Sunday, July 24. As seen in a video making the rounds, the man of God was confronted by gun-toting criminals while at the pulpit.

The New York Post reports that the criminals left with his KSh 47 million (N168 million) in jewels, according to investigators. Whitehead was in the middle of his sermon at the Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministries in Canarsie in the mid-morning hours, when three masked gunmen burst in, police said.

“How many of you have lost your faith because you saw somebody else die?” Whitehead asked his congregation, right before spotting the armed intruders.

“All right, all right,” Whitehead then said several times before hitting the floor on his hands and knees. Whitehead, dressed in a maroon suit with a gold-trimmed collar and sleeve cuffs, was wearing a long gold chain and a large ring on each finger at the time.

@YavoShmurda said: “He set it up lowkey and the buddy in the background didn’t even get on the floor. In the times we living in black ppl are more spiritual than religious. Don’t even see a lot of youth going to church because our grandparents forced us to go.”

@Tot_of_Taters said: “Y’all deadass find this funny. Robbing people period is wrong. Regardless of your feelings about the church that is a place where people should feel safe. Yet people made at Charleston White for saying we need to get rid of this type of stuff.”
