Holy geez, we can't wait to hear Swift sing about this one!
Conor Kennedy was arrested this afternoon at the White House!!
Po-Po slapped cuffs on his pretty little wrists and hauled his famous behind off to the slammer!
Conor, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Darryl Hannah, and 44 other activists were arrested for civil disobedience while protesting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline as, apparently, their Sierra Club-esque group feels it will contribute to the current economic crisis!
In a statement, one activist said:
“We really shouldn’t have to be put in handcuffs to stop KXL–our nation’s leading climate scientists have told us it’s dangerous folly, and all the recent Nobel Peace laureates have urged us to set a different kind of example for the world, so the choice should be obvious."
We aren't sure how Conor came to be involved, but we bet his great-uncle John F. Kennedy — a legendary American who once lived in the residence where the protest was staged — would be proud as peach pie to see a descendant risk his reputation for a cause he deemed worthy.
And combating pollutions is so important, too!
Aww! We're almost sad Conor and T-Swizzle are never ever getting back together!
What a beautiful pair of difference-makers they could've become!
