John Cusack gets pepper sprayed by Chicago police during weekend protest

Actor John Cusack witnessed police brutality first-hand in Chicago on Saturday night during a protest for the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. At first, the 53-year-old Illinois native — who concealed his identity with a face mask — spoke to several cops, whom he said ‘understood the rage’ of ‘furious’ protesters. An hour later, John tweeted that he was ‘hit with pepper spray’ but defended law enforcement for ‘not escalating violence compared to other cities.’

… But by 8:46 Saturday night Cusack posted a video of cops “coming at me with batons” and hitting his bicycle for “filming a burning car.”
