Cole Sprouse Talks Being an Ally and Getting Arrested at a George Floyd Protest

https://instagram.com/p/CA5851tJlun


-Cole Sprouse was arrested yesterday and posted about it to let it be known to not make it about him. He was peacefully protesting (and also noted that riots and looting are also an "absolutely legitimate form of protest") with others in Santa Monica.

-Also emphasizes, "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 [...] 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’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"

-He posted a link to donations and support in his IG story
