Full House star Jodie Sweetin pushed by LAPD at abortion rally
“Full House” star Jodie Sweetin was pushed by a Los Angeles Police Department officer on Saturday while attending a rally protesting the Supreme Court’s decision to indict Roe v.
A video of the incident made the rounds on the internet after his incident. Footage shows an LAPD officer grabbing and shoving Sweetin before the actress falls forward to the ground. A group of other protesters rush over to help Sweetin up while others admonish the line of police officers. The incident appears to have happened at a freeway exit that protesters had blocked.
“What the hell is wrong with you guys?” shouts a protester before a “No justice, no peace” chant erupts.
A representative for Sweetin confirmed that the actress and activist was the person featured in the footage.
“I am very proud of the hundreds of people who turned out yesterday to exercise their First Amendment rights and take immediate action to peacefully protest the vast injustices served by our Supreme Court,” Sweetin said in a statement after the incident. “Our activism will continue until our voices are heard and action is taken. This will not deter us, we will continue to fight for our rights. We are not free until we are ALL free.”
On Sunday afternoon, Sweetin also posted a response to the video with the caption, “LAPD just abused actress/activist Jodie Sweetin at a pro-choice protest.”
“Thanks for posting. Love everyone out there on the streets fighting for what is right… #WeKeepUsSafe,” she wrote on Instagram.
diversity has contacted the Los Angeles Police Department for comment on the incident.
