El artista contó en su cuenta de Instagram que formo parte de una manifestación en California, y fue aquí en donde lo detuvieron.

“Un grupo de manifestantes pacíficos, incluido yo mismo, fueron arrestados ayer en Santa Mónica. Entonces, antes de que la horda voraz del sensacionalismo mediático decida hablar de mí, hay una clara necesidad de hablar sobre las circunstancias”

El artista mencionó que las autoridades les advirtieron que serian arrestados en caso de no retirarse de la manifestación.

“Fui detenido cuando me solidaricé, como lo fueron muchos de la última vanguardia dentro de Santa Mónica. Nos dieron la opción de irnos, y nos informaron que si no nos retiramos, seríamos arrestados. Cuando muchos se volvieron para irse, encontramos otra línea de agentes de policía bloqueando nuestra ruta, en ese momento, comenzaron a atarnos”

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.

“Es necesario decir que, como hombre blanco heterosexual y figura pública, las consecuencias institucionales de mi detención no son nada en comparación con otros dentro del movimiento”
