Claims that 7 celebrities – identified as “liberal heroes” – were arrested during an Oscars party are spreading across the Internet. The story seems to have been published on a website called thelastlineofdefense.org but later published on other sites. The article reads in part –
The celebrities arrested were booked outside the parties in mobile command centers and released so the fake news media wouldn’t have time to gather for photo ops or create their own narrative about what happened. As of this morning, nobody seems interested in reporting the event at all.
Arrested in the raid were Allison Janney, Bradley Cooper, Bette Midler, Seth Rogan, Drew Barrymore, Miley Cyrus and Justin Timberlake. They were all charged with providing safe haven for drug abuse, possession of various classes of substances, resisting arrest and inciting violence against the government. The drugs seized at the different parties included cocaine, molly, ecstasy, marijuana, heroin and methamphetamine. Rogan’s party also had large quantities of powerful psychotropic drugs like LSD, MDMA and the ubiquitous brain chemical DMT.
The stories are not true. Naturally if such an event did take place, it would have been covered extensively by mainstream media outlets, yet no such reports exist. Thelastlineofdefense.org is not a genuine news outlet – is has a disclaimer on it’s about us page that at the time of writing reads –
