Friday morning, around midnight, reports say 100 Occupy Wall Street protesters “stormed” the set of an OWS themed episode of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit in Lower Manhattan. The demonstrators were outraged that the show was allowed to set up in Zuccotti Park to re-enact the protests.
Brooklyn Heights resident Drew Hornbein tells the NY Daily News, “This is not us. We are not part of corporate TV America.” He added, “It’s hysterical. Two weeks ago they kicked us out of Zuccotti Park. Now they have this set trying to pretend it’s us. It’s odd.”
Shortly after the protest began, the NYPD announced that the production company’s film permit had been rescinded.
