Cole Sprouse gearresteerd tijdens Black Lives Matter movement

Na de dood van George Floyd is er veel ophef en woede in Amerika. Er zijn veel Black Lives Matter demonstraties, winkels worden vernield en politiebureaus worden in brand gestoken. Ook celebs demonstreren, waaronder acteur Cole Sprouse.

Cole Sprouse opgepakt

In een uitgebreide Instagram-post schreef Cole dat hij afgelopen zondag meegelopen heeft in een Black Lives Matter protest in Santa Monica, Californië. Hoewel dit protest rustig verliep, is hij toch gearresteerd. Cole wilde graag zelf zijn verhaal doen, voordat de media verdraait wat er écht gebeurd is.

‘We kregen de mogelijkheid om te vertrekken en kregen te horen dat we zouden worden gearresteerd als we ons niet terugtrokken. Toen velen zich omdraaiden om te vertrekken, kwamen we nog een rij politieagenten tegen die onze route blokkeerden.’

Hij sluit zijn post af met dat wat er met hem gebeurd is als blanke, hetero man en public figure, niets is in vergelijking met wat er met anderen is gebeurd binnen de beweging. Verder laat hij weten zich niet meer uit te spreken over dit onderwerp: ‘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.

Zijn hele caption lees je hieronder.

‘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.’
