Actress Hunter Schafer, who is known for her work in the drama streaming series ‘Euphoria,' was taken into police custody for storming 30 Rock during the taping of US President Joe Biden's ‘Late Night’ appearance.

The cops and sources said that she was booked along with 33 protesters, reports ‘New York Post’. Sources have said that the actress was issued a summon for trespassing, after she participated in the protest. The protest was organised to demand a ceasefire in the Israel-Palestine conflict.

As per ‘New York Post’, Schafer, who essays the role of ‘Jules’ in ‘Euphoria’, was photographed wearing a “Cease-fire now” t-shirt while she was escorted out by a New York City Police Department officer with her hands restrained behind her back.

She joined other protesters with the organisation “Jewish Voice for Peace” as they sat in the lobby of 30 Rock holding banners. The banners read, “Jews to Biden: Stop arming genocide” and “Lasting cease-fire,” according to videos posted to social media. “No more weapons, no more war. Cease-fire is what we’re fighting for”, the group chanted along with: “Not in our name”.
