The video started when a police officer asked the man why he didn’t open the door.

Protesters called for more demonstrations Wednesday following a night of unrest over the fatal shooting of a black man by police officers that was caught on video outside a Baton Rouge convenience store.

The video has gone viral with over 11,000 views.

West Midlands Police’s Professional Standards Department have barred the officer from duty.

"What was said was not right and the officer has been removed from front line duties pending further assessment," Assistant Chief Constable Alex Murray said in a statement.

"The officer has already expressed remorse and is very apologetic over his comments. We expect the highest standards of behavior from all our officers and staff, and we will always take complaints from members of the public seriously."

The officers showed up to Chambers’ residence for an investigation and no one was arrested, West Midlands police spokesperson Deborah Edmonds told the Washington Post.

Desmond Jaddoo, a community activist in Birmingham called for the officer's removal Wednesday. Police officers should refrain from making comments about shooting people, Jaddoo said, according to the Guardian.

"My concern as an activist is, taking into account the current climate and deaths in custody and also community relations, this goes no way in building trust and confidence with the police," Jaddoo said.

"You don’t not make flippant statements about serious issues which affect communities. This is not locker room banter."
