Hayden Panettiere is one actress that I just want to pick up, hug and tell her everything is going to be okay. Not only is Hayden a cutie patooty but also an ass kick'n activist. I guess even the pampered youth in Hollywood have to find out the ugly truth one way or another...People suck.
Japan issued an arrest warrant for actress Hayden Panettiere for protesting with a surf board along side other activist, in Taiji on Oct. 27th. The protest was against the killing of dolphins which occurs in the coastal village of Taiji. Taiji slaughters thousands of dolphins in the cove every year.
"I learned today that I have an arrest warrant out for me in Japan because of what I did for Save the Whales," Panettiere, 18, is quoted as telling E! News.
Late last month, the actress-activist participated with others in a confrontation with fisherman during a dolphin hunt.
Asked what the repercussions might be from the warrant, Panettiere said, "Potentially jail, but I doubt it. ... I guess they could come here and get us, but probably not."
Would Do It Again Panettiere said the arrest warrant does not faze her. "I'd do it again," she said of the protest. "Very possibly, might do it again."
The actress added that the personal risks involved paled in comparison to the potential good that could come from the activists' actions.
"I was very excited that people were interested in what we did," she said. "In [Hollywood], you tend to only get publicity for not wearing underwear or going to rehab."
