After the shocking murder of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer, the US has been swamped with protests across states asking the government to take immediate and strict action against the officer who has now been suspended. Many celebrities along with common people took to the streets to protest the murder and hold up the importance of Black Lives Matter. And Riverdale star Cole Sprouse was among the many who did so. Talking about his experience he said while being a part of a peaceful demonstration in Santa Monica he was detained by the police. He took to Instagram to write a detailed account of what happened and specifically mentioned that it wasn’t a narrative about him. He recounted an incident where the police asked them to retreat or they would be arrested and when Cole along with other protesters did retreat there were other police officers blocking their exit and zip-tying them. Having said this, the actor said how his fellow demonstrators who were part of movement may have had a much harder time having been detained than him as a white male celebrity.

Just like Cole, a number of other celebrities like Ariana Grande, Nina Dobrev, and many others have turned up to protest against this racial injustice.
