John Cusack Says Police 'Came at Me with Batons' While He Filmed Protests in Chicago

John Cusack is revealing a scary incident with the police that occurred while he was at the Black Lives Matter protest in Chicago.

The 53-year-old actor took to Twitter on Saturday (May 30) to share a video of the police allegedly coming at him with batons.

“Cops didn’t like me filming the burning car so they came at me with batons. Hitting my bike. Ahhm here’s the audio,” John tweeted.

In the video, a person – who is assumed to be a police officer – can be heard screaming at John to move, followed by the sound of metal being slammed.

In another tweet, John confirmed reports that police were using pepper spray on the protestors, writing, “Pepper spray – is out – no tear gas that I’ve seen personally out here.”

John shared in another tweet that the police “didn’t assault” him.

They didn’t assault me- keep it in perspective and I should not be the headline or the story important thing is the anger & pain out there& how hair trigger it feels/ I’m of no importance,” John tweeted. “I was just a witness to what was happening in Chicago – didn’t see the press out at all”

John also said that he hopes that the protests indicate the end of Donald Trump‘s presidency.

“Would be very surprised if this is a one or two day event / this may well be the beginning of end of trump loathsome era – thank god,” John wrote. “Feels like many streams of outrage coming to a head- a wave peaking -Chicago scene was about getting to trump tower most of day.”

Celebrities are speaking out about the fires taking place in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest.

The rainforest – which produces 20 percent of the oxygen in the Earth’s atmosphere and slows down global warming – is burning “at the highest rate since the country’s space research center … began tracking [the fires] in 2013,” CNN reports.

Ariana Grande posted three photos of the fires in her Instagram Stories, which included the caption, “If ur not from Brazil, and dont have no clue about what’s happening here, here it goes. The largest rainforest on the world is on fire, for the 16th day. And the media is not giving a f–k for this. #PrayForAmazonia.”

Demi Lovato shared two Instagram Story posts – a screenshot of Ariana‘s post and another that read, “The Amazon has been burning for 3 weeks, and I’m just finding out because of the lack of media coverage. This is one of the most important ecosystems on earth! Spread awareness!”

Spike Lee Returns with 'Chi-Raq' - Watch the Trailer

Spike Lee takes on a classic Greek play for his new film Chi-Raq, set to be released on Amazon on Dec 4th.

Based on Aristophanes’ Greek play, Lysistrata, the new film follows gang violence by a few men in a neighborhood in Chicago.

Similar to the play’s plot-line, a powerful female member of the community, Lysistrata, bands all the women together to withhold sex from their partners to put an end to the fighting and bloodshed. Predictably this leads to the inevitable decision of the men to choose weapons or their women.

The film boasts a star studded cast including Samuel L. Jackson, Nick Cannon, Angela Bassett, John Cusack, Dave Chappelle, Wesley Snipes, Jennifer Hudson, and Teyonah Parris playing Lysistrata.

This is also Amazon Studios first featured film.
