Protesters targeted the San Francisco home of Google Ventures partner Kevin Rose, as anti-tech tensions continue to mount in the region.

Google declined to comment on Sunday's episode, but Rose provided some detail on Twitter and Instagram.

The Digg founder said the protesters raised a banner reading "Kevin Rose Parasite" and handed out pamphlets to his neighbors that read, in part: "Kevin directs the flow of capital from Google into the tech startup bubble that is destroying San Francisco. The start-ups that he funds bring the swarms of young entrepreneurs that have ravaged the landscapes of San Francisco and Oakland."
