NEWS: Kathy Hochul asked to leave slain NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller’s wake

Gov. Kathy Hochul was asked to leave the wake for slain NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller Friday afternoon.

Hochul arrived at the Massapequa Funeral Home on Long Island for the second day of viewings around 1:45 p.m.

She was only in the venue for about 10 minutes before she was asked to leave, law enforcement sources told The Post.

A person was heard saying “Get her outta here” from inside the crowded funeral home, police sources told The Post.

On her way to her car, the governor appeared to be confronted by a man in a black suit, who gestured while speaking intensely.

Several cops waiting outside the funeral home clapped as he walked away.

Hochul and other New York lawmakers have come under fire in the days since Diller’s death over bail reform, as it was revealed that one of the men implicated in the shooting was allowed to walk on a gun charge last spring.

Ahead of the weekend services, Sergeants Benevolent Association President Vincent J. Vallelong wrote a scathing letter warning members of City Council not to show their faces.

“Their presence is more than a distraction. It is a stain on the legacy of a true hero who made the ultimate sacrifice,” Vallelong argued, adding that the leaders should feel “morally responsible” for the officer’s killing.
