Famous actor Joaquin Phoenix was arrested at Democrat activist Jane Fonda’s climate change protest on Friday.
Fonda has been holding weekly protests at the nations capitol for months. She herself has been arrested on numerous occasions.
Phoenix was speaking to the protesters and urging people change how they live their lives. Specifically Phoenix was arguing for environmentally sustainable dietary habits.
Addressing the protesters and bystanders Phoenix said, “The meat and dairy industry its the third leading cause of climate change and I think sometimes we wonder what can we do in this fight against climate change.”
Phoenix is one of Hollywood’s celebrities who at least practices what he preaches. He even went so far as to call out other celebrities for their lifestyles.
At some point in the protest Phoenix was led away by the police. Now the question is when will the police do something real about the consistent violations of the protesters.
