Shailene Woodley Pens Powerful Essay Telling 'The Truth' About Her Arrest

Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley is speaking out about her controversial arrest.

As you know, last week, the 24-year-old was charged with criminal trespassing and engaging in a riot after protesting the building of the Dakota Access Pipeline in Sioux County, North Dakota.

In her first full response since pleading not guilty on Wednesday, the Divergent actress penned a powerful essay for Time magazine revealing "the truth" about her arrest.

Explaining why she was standing in solidarity on Indigenous Peoples' Day, Shailene called out Americans for taking advantage of Native Americans without respecting their culture:

"We wear their heritage, their sacred totems, as decoration and in fashion trends, failing to honor their culture. Headdresses, feathers, arrows. Moccasins, sage, beadwork. You know what I'm talking about, Coachella. Walking around the flea market this weekend, I can't even tell you how many native references I saw being used in a way that feeds our western narrative."

On Wednesday, the Divergent star pleaded not guilty to charges of criminal trespass and engaging in a riot, E! News reports.

We're hearing the actress's attorney Alexander Reichert entered the plea on Shailene's behalf as the activist entered a waiver of appearance so that she wouldn't have to be physically present in the courtroom.

While there is no court date set as of yet, we will certainly keep you updated.

Shailene was recording the entire ordeal for about an hour and managed to capture her own arrest on video!

When asked why she's the sole person being arrested, police tell the actress that she was identified. So basically she was specifically targeted for being famous, which is ridiculous but also not surprising.

In the clip, Shailene speaks to her Facebook followers as the arrest is happening:

"I'm being arrested. Because I was trespassing like everyone else but as soon as you guys asked me to leave I left…I was down there with everybody else. As soon as they came I left. It's because I'm well known. It's because I have 40,000 people watching."
