A spirited demonstration by an actress from a 2005 blockbuster closed off one of the gates to the White House Tuesday.
Q'orianka Kilcher, 20, chained herself to the fence near the White House gate, and then her mother, who was traveling with her, threw a thick black liquid onto Kilcher. It looked like crude oil. That seemed like a good guess -- after all, isn't that what most protesters are taking a stand against these days?
Needless to say, hazmat crews swooped in on the scene.
As it turns out, it was just black paint. Hazmat crews quickly figured out it was not toxic.
The women were protesting Peruvian President Alan Garcia Perez's meeting with President Obama, which was happening during the demonstration. Both women were arrested.
Kilcher is charged with disorderly conduct. Her mother is charged with destruction of government property.
Q'orianka Kilcher is known for starring as Pocahontas in the 2005 blockbuster "The New World."Source
