“Euphoria” star Hunter Schafer was among the 30 protestors taken into custody for participating in a Pro-Palestine rally outside of President Joe Biden’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers” appearance.

An NYPD spokesperson told Variety that “a total of 30 individuals were taken into custody” after a “demonstration at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.” Those 30 people were also issued summonses for trespass.

Yesterday at the Michigan Democratic Primary, thousands pushed for an “uncommitted vote” to send a message to the POTUS about Gaza, and the uncommitted share of the vote was at 14.2% with 28% in.

The 25-year-old actress was protesting alongside the organization Jewish Voice for Peace. The star was also seen wearing a “ceasefire now” shirt as she was escorted away by NYD, referencing the ongoing Isreal-Hamas war.

In an Instagram post featuring Schafer, Jewish Voice for Peace stated the mission of the protest on Monday. “Biden’s deadly foreign policy has funded and fueled genocide in Gaza. 50 protesters were arrested by the NYPD and Secret Service,” the post reads. “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.”

Biden has been criticized for his handling on the United States response to the conflict. Before appearing on the show, Biden and Meyers went out for ice cream, where the president said that he hopes a ceasefire will start “by the end of the weekend.”


“My National Security adviser tells me that we’re close. We’re not done yet,” he said. “My hope is by next Monday, we’ll have a ceasefire.”
