Gwen Carr’s daughter teased her, once she learned her mother had been arrested protesting outside of Trump Tower in New York City.
“You’ve been around 67 years — you wait until you get 67 years old to get arrested?” her daughter joked.
Carr was among more than a dozen National Action Network demonstrators arrested by the NYPD on Tuesday night for blocking traffic on a busy and highly surveilled street in Manhattan.
But Carr says that, given the threat Trump poses to civil rights, policing reform and other social justice causes, her arrest was necessary.
In July 2014, Carr’s son Eric Garner, was killed in an interaction with New York City police that’s slated for a Justice Department review under the new administration. As such, she said she will keep up the pressure on the people who make the decisions. Read more
Louis Tomlinson wanted a photog out of his face at LAX, and the altercation ended with the photog smashing his head on the floor and Louis ended up in cuffs.
It went down Friday night at LAX baggage claim. We’re told the 25-year-old singer was with a female companion and the photog was too close for Louis’ comfort, so he allegedly pulled the photog to the floor by his legs. The photog fell backwards and struck his back and head on the floor.
It didn’t end there. A female witness started recording Louis’ female companion as she tried to leave. The 2 women allegedly then got into a physical altercation.
The witness and the photog both made citizens’ arrests.
Tomlinson was arrested for simple battery and booked at a nearby LAPD jail.
Why "fuck her silence"? Maybe Louis wanted her to stay quiet on this whole thing?? Why does everybody in this fandom ruthlessly belittle this girl based on her public persona? If Louis is so great and you claim to love him so much, shouldn't you be supportive of his decisions??
Because Eleanor got a choice and Louis didn’t.
Because she got the luxury of being able to leave, of not being arrested, of not having her name dragged through the mud in the press (falsely, I might add).
Because the articles about her in this shit show are positive, career summaries and recaps of her time as his brave girlfriend while the Louis alternative has been to paint to him as a violent, uncontrollable asshole who punches people in the face at will.
Because she signed up for this again.
Because she doesn’t give a fuck about Louis beyond how his name can help her further her sad “fashion” career.
Because she’s never stood up for him in any way whatsoever, and has, in fact, disparaged him to several people I know.
I support Louis’ actions trying to help a woman who has largely done nothing to help him in 6 long years. I support his bravery and compassion in that moment.
But he didn’t choose this closet - the first or second version of it, and I don’t have to do shit to support that or her existence in it.
i think the best thing we can do right now is keep being vocal, keep calling out the lies in the press, and keep making sure louis knows how much we love and support him and that we will always have his back no matter how nasty this gets.
you don’t deserve any of this, louis. you’ve got such a kind heart and such a warm soul and i promise you - we know who you really are.
I was just thinking... How come Louis' got such a badass lawyer working for him, that apparently eats people alive to get his clients the best deal, and yet Louis has a crappy custody arrangement with no even overnights? Wouldn't that be something he could have helped with? Wouldn't a lawyer with such important clients recommend a pat test before his client spends the next 18 years paying (a lot) for a child that could not be his? How does that work?
Hollywood, CA - Today, we spotted a doctor and a few lawyers arriving at Louis Tomlinson’s Hollywood home. The former One Direction singer got into a scuffle after landing in the airport with a photographer and a fan. After the fight the singer was arrested and booked for battery against the pair. Reps for Louis state he was trying to defend his girlfriend, Eleanor Calder, who reportedly was being harassed.
Louis was trying to grab the camera and he falls down and the photographer fell with him and that is how he hit his head, meanwhile some girl and Eleanor were brawling and Louis was yelling for help and then he pulled the girl off of Eleanor and they fell down.
Looking at all of this as objectively as we can right now, I think it’s clear he and Eleanor were supposed to get papped at LAX.
He took a fan pic at the Charlotte airport.
Harry was spotted and took a fan pic.
The paps were in baggage claim, so they were called.
All of these are normal, everyday occurrences when Elounor is in season.
I think it went sideways when the pap provoked him over something. Obviously, at this point, we don’t know what that provocation was, so I don’t want to speculate. But right now, I think we should assume this is a real, emotional situation and wait to see what the video is like (cause I promise you there will be video).
I think today we reached the most obvious example of smear camapign against Louis. The best example of how his team doesnt work in his best interest. The fact that there's a video that proves Louis is 100% innocent, in fact he calls for help and goes to protect Eleanor, and yet there's an article in The Sun telling a completely different story that paints Louis in a bad light. How could anyone still believe Louis wants this for himself or that his team doesn't work against him.
and then you have years worth of proof that dan wootton and simon jones are besties in jarring contrast with all the shit that’s been published about the boys in the sun over the years and you just have to scratch your head that there’s anyone in this fandom who still thinks this is totes normal.
