Shailene Woodley Speaks Out After Arrest in North Dakota

Shailene Woodley will continue to fight for the environment.

The 24-year-old actress was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing earlier this week while attending a protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline in Bismarck, North Dakota.

After the Divergent star was released from jail on Monday, her rep said in a statement, “She appreciates the outpouring of support, not only for her, but more importantly, for the continued fight against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.”

Now, Woodley has seemingly addressed her arrest in a post on her Instagram.

“One day, baby, we’ll sing our poetry,” she wrote last night. “The words dripping from our tongues wet with ripened patience. and the lyrics, the sweet fruits born from the seeds our aging hands are now sowing. #alwaysinallways #heartforward #uptous #NoDAPL #protectcleanwater #iamonyourside.”

While there was about 100 people at the demonstration on Monday, Woodley was one of 27 who were arrested, and she streamed the whole thing on Facebook Live.

“Alright I’m being arrested,” she says in the video. “Because I was trespassing like everyone. As soon as you guys asked me to leave, I l left … I’m being arrested. I was down there with everybody else. I don’t know what’s going on? As soon as they came I left… it’s because I’m well known. It’s because I have 40,000 people watching.”

Several celebrities have since voiced their support for Woodley, including her Fault in Our Stars co-star, Ansel Elgort.
