If you’ve been wondering what The OC star Mischa Barton has been up to these days, well, you’re about to hear her name quite a bit over the next 24-hour news cycle. On Thursday, the Dancing with the Stars cast-off, whose three-episode stint on the reality series was memorable for all the wrong reasons, shared her “heart break” over the news of the Alton Sterling shooting in a strange and controversial Instagram post. For starters, it’s an image of her on a boat, drinking wine.
Now, that’s not to say that people can’t be concerned with current events while they’re out on the open sea, or in her case her “happy place,” but it’s the message that really raises eyebrows.
I’m truly heart broken to watch videos like the #altonsterling execution. This may have been going on forever in the United States but thank god the pigs get caught on camera now. Its unthinkable and an embarrassment to America. The country I was brought up in. Somebody make change. We need gun control and unity. And a real President so think about that when this election is around the corner. The world is a precarious place right now.#stop #reflect and #act appropriately
The post has been up for more than six hours as it racks up “likes” and comments from people who are calling her some less-than-pleasant names. It’s certainly a change of pace from her previous images from Paris Haute Couture fashion week, but if someone famous doesn’t ask “somebody” else to “make change,” then things will most likely stay the same.
