    The 25-year-old actress, who gained popularity for her roles in the popular teen drama Euphoria and Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, protested with a Jewish-led group that identifies as “anti-Zionist” on Monday in order to interfere with President Joe Biden’s appearance on ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers‘. Schafer and the group of protestors advocated for and demanded a ceasefire in Gaza.

    The actor was taken into custody with fifty other protestors outside the NBC offices at the Rockefeller Center in New York.

    Addressing the incident, the group stated, “We commend Hunter Schafer’s commitment to Palestinian freedom and to a future of justice for everyone.”

    They also posted pictures from the protest on Instagram and wrote, “The President needs to start listening to the American people – not the far-Right Israeli government indiscriminately bombing the people of Gaza, destroying 70% of infrastructure, including hospitals, universities and the electricity and water grids.”
