‘Full House’ Star Jodie Sweetin “OK” After Video Shows Her Being Pushed, Falling on Ground During L.A. Protest

Full House actress Jodie Sweetin is "OK," an actress rep told The Hollywood Reporter after video surfaced this weekend showing Sweetin being pushed and falling to the ground during a protest in Los Angeles.
In the video, which freelance photojournalist Mike Ade posted to social media, Sweetin is shown near a group of police officers. One of them appears to push her and she then appears to trip and fall onto the street. She quickly stands and rallies before the protesters shout "no justice, no peace".

The protest took place near the 101 freeway on Saturday.
In a statement, Sweetin said: "I am very proud of the hundreds of people who turned out yesterday to exercise their First Amendment rights and take immediate action to peacefully protest the vast injustices committed by our Supreme Court were delivered. Our activism will continue until our voices are heard and action is taken. This will not deter us, we will continue to fight for our rights. We are not free until we are ALL free.”

The LAPD said in a statement that it was "aware" of the video and that officers would not allow the group onto the freeway.
"Force used will be evaluated against LAPD policies and procedures," the LAPD said. "As the nation continues to grapple with the recent Supreme Court decision, the Los Angeles Police Department will continue to facilitate First Amendment rights while protecting life and property."
The LAPD has been posting updates on protests on social media throughout the weekend.
While Sweetin's representatives declined to specify which Supreme Court "injustices" she was protesting, demonstrations have been taking place across the United States, including in New York City and Los Angeles, after the court announced Friday's historic Roe v. Wade had been overthrown and abolished constitutional abortion rights nationwide. Thursday's court decision on gun rights also drew strong backlash.
