Sous une publication Instagram disant «Black Lives Matter», l'acteur a expliqué la situation, et que nous devons prendre son histoire comme un exemple de «privilège blanc».

A group of peaceful protesters, myself included, were arrested yesterday in Santa Monica. So before the voracious horde of media sensationalism decides to somehow turn it about me, there’s a clear need to speak about the circumstances: Black Lives Matter. Peace, riots, looting, are an absolutely legitimate form of protest. the media is by nature only going to show the most sensational, which only proves a long standing racist agenda. I was detained when standing in solidarity, as were many of the final vanguard within Santa Monica. We were given the option to leave, and were informed that if we did not retreat, we would be arrested. When many did turn to leave, we found another line of police officers blocking our route, at which point, they started zip tying us. It needs to be stated that as a straight white man, and a public figure, the institutional consequences of my detainment are nothing in comparison to others within the movement. This is ABSOLUTELY not a narrative about me, and I hope the media doesn’t make it such. This is, and will be, a time about standing ground near others as a situation escalates, providing educated support, demonstrating and doing the right thing. This is precisely the time to contemplate what it means to stand as an ally. I hope others in my position do as well. I noticed that there are cameras that roll within the police cruisers during the entirety of our detainment, hope it helps. I’ll speak no more on the subject, as I’m (1) not well versed enough to do so, (2) not the subject of the movement, and (3) uninterested in drawing attention away from the leaders of the #BLM movement. I will be, again, posting the link in my story to a comprehensive document for donations and support.

«Un groupe de manifestants pacifiques et moi-même avons été arrêtés hier à Santa Monica», a-t-il raconté, précisant qu'il ne s'agissait pas d'une nouvelle sensationnaliste à propos de lui, mais d'une chose beaucoup plus importante.

«J’ai été détenu alors que je démontrais ma solidarité avec plusieurs autres à Santa Monica. On nous a donné l’option de partir et on nous a dit que si nous ne le faisions pas, nous serions arrêtés. Alors, plusieurs ont choisi de s’en aller, nous nous sommes retrouvés face à une autre ligne de policiers qui bloquaient notre chemin et qui ont commencé à nous enserrer les mains.»

Cole continue en expliquant que, bien qu’il ait été arrêté, son arrestation n’est rien comparativement à ce que les personnes noires peuvent vivre. 

D'ailleurs, des fans ont filmé la scène avant que Cole soit détenu. On peut le voir en train de prendre des photos de la manifestation.

À ce sujet, Cole a ajouté: «Il faut dire qu’en tant qu’homme hétérosexuel blanc et en tant que personnalité publique, les conséquences institutionnelles de mon arrestation ne sont rien en comparaison avec d’autres personnes de ce mouvement.»

Cole a terminé en expliquant qu’il ne pouvait pas se prononcer plus sur le mouvement, mais il a partagé un document contenant de multiples ressources, qu’on peut trouver juste ici.

Cole n’est pas la seule célébrité à avoir participé aux manifestations: Halsey, Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello et Shawn Mendes étaient eux aussi présents. 

Par contre, Cole semble être le seul qu'on ait arrêté.
