These days, Daryl Hannah can’t get arrested in Hollywood. So instead, she’s breaking the law in Washington, D.C.
The actress was one of over 100 people arrested in front of the White House while protesting the planned expansion of the Keystone pipeline, a project that would expand an existing pipeline from Alberta, Canada, to the Gulf of Mexico. Opponents say the expansion poses a threat to the environment. Proponents say they don’t give a sh*t.
“We stand here today to just say no to slavery, to just say no to tar, sands, oil, and no to the Keystone pipeline,” said Hannah, who must have absolutely no sense of proportion or understanding of the word “slavery.”
Moments after her arrest, President Obama is said to have wept a single tear before waving his magic wand and making the world a better, greener place. Thanks, Daryl.
