The marches by the case of George Floyd continue to spread to the entire United States, adding up to many celebrities who have come out of quarantine to express their disapproval against the brutality of the police and the racism that lives in your country, unfortunately, his fame is not exempt from going out to hurt or be stopped during this movement.
A recent example is that the protagonist of ‘Riverdale’, Cole Sprouse was arrested during the protests in Santa Monica, California because according to the portal BuzzFeed, the actor was in a group pacifist when others started vandalizing so that upon arrival the police had a chance to leave which they did not want to because they wanted to show solidarity, so when I finally went to withdraw it was too late.
After his arrest, the actor who embodies Jughead wrote his version in his account of Instagram, para, and avoid the sensationalist media that does not report accurately on these events which have become historical in the United States.

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.
“I got arrested when I solidaricé, like many of the latest cutting-edge within Santa Monica. We were given the option to leave, and told us that if we don’t retreat, we would be arrested. When many were going, we found another line of police officers blocking our path, at that time, began to be arrested”.
The above wrote the famous together with a request that the news does not focus on it, because this is not their motion, but the African-American people that have suffered attacks by the police and a lot of white people in that nation.
“This is precisely the moment to contemplate what it means to be an ally. I hope that others in my position do the same. I realized that there are cameras that rotate within the cruises of the police during the whole of our detention, I hope that it helps. I will say No more on the subject, since (1) I am not sufficiently instructed as to do so, (2) I am not the subject of the movement”.
