Shailene Woodley was arrested earlier today for criminal trespassing — and invited her millions of Facebook fans along for the ride!
The 24-year-old was protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline at the time of her arrest.
During the Facebook live video, she asked the officers if she was singled out because she’s “famous,” and though they initially denied that was the case, the eventually confirmed that she was “identified.”
“Alright, I’m being arrested,” she can be heard saying. “Because I was trespassing like everyone. As soon as you guys asked me to leave, I left. She was down there — everybody was down there. I’m being arrested. I was down there with everybody else. I don’t know what’s going on? As soon as they came, I left. It’s because I’m well known. It’s because I have 40,000 people watching.”
Hey — that's one way to get a lot of attention on your cause!
