Cole Sprouse anholdt

USA er i oprør, efter afroamerikaneren George Floyd døde i politiets varetægt i Minneapolis. 

Landet over demonstrerer oprørte borgere over den tragiske begivenhed, og en af dem er "Riverdale"-stjernen Cole Sprouse, der udviste sin sympati under en demonstration i Santa Monica. 

Nu afslører den 27-årige skuespiller, at han blev anholdt i forbindelse med demonstrationen.

A group of peaceful protesters, myself included, were arrested yesterday in Santa Monica. So before the voracious horde of media sensationalism decides to somehow turn it about me, there’s a clear need to speak about the circumstances: Black Lives Matter. Peace, riots, looting, are an absolutely legitimate form of protest. the media is by nature only going to show the most sensational, which only proves a long standing racist agenda. I was detained when standing in solidarity, as were many of the final vanguard within Santa Monica. We were given the option to leave, and were informed that if we did not retreat, we would be arrested. When many did turn to leave, we found another line of police officers blocking our route, at which point, they started zip tying us. It needs to be stated that as a straight white man, and a public figure, the institutional consequences of my detainment are nothing in comparison to others within the movement. This is ABSOLUTELY not a narrative about me, and I hope the media doesn’t make it such. This is, and will be, a time about standing ground near others as a situation escalates, providing educated support, demonstrating and doing the right thing. This is precisely the time to contemplate what it means to stand as an ally. I hope others in my position do as well. I noticed that there are cameras that roll within the police cruisers during the entirety of our detainment, hope it helps. I’ll speak no more on the subject, as I’m (1) not well versed enough to do so, (2) not the subject of the movement, and (3) uninterested in drawing attention away from the leaders of the #BLM movement. I will be, again, posting the link in my story to a comprehensive document for donations and support.

- Jeg blev arresteret, da jeg som mange andre stod i soliadaritet med sidste fortrop i Santa Monica, fortæller han på sin Instagram.

- Det er nødvendigt at understrege, at som en heteroseksuel hvid mand og en offentlig person, så er de institutionelle konsekvenser af min arrestation ikke noget sammenlignet med andres i bevægelsen, fortsætter han.

- Det her er ABSOLUT ikke en fortælling om mig, og jeg håber ikke, at medierne gør det til det. Dette er, og vil være, en tid, hvor man skal stå fast nær andre, når en situation eskalerer, at yde uddannet støtte, at demonstrere og gøre det rette, slår han fast og opfordrer hans følgere til at donere et beløb, der støtter formålet.
