Conor was arrested in front of the White House on Feb. 13 for protesting against a proposed oil pipeline! Read on for all the details.

Conor Kennedy, the 17-year-old ex-boyfriend of Taylor Swift, was arrested on Feb. 13, alongside his father Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and actress Daryl Hannah, for protesting outside of the White House!

The trio were protesting against the proposed Keystone XL tar sands pipeline before they were hauled off in cuffs. According to a press release from the Sierra Club, “After being taken away from the White House in handcuffs, both Kennedys were driven to a Park Police station and released after paying a fine.”

Conor Kennedy’s Social Activism

The Kennedy family has always been socially active, with Conor and his father following in the tradition as activists with the Sierra Club.

“For the first time in the Sierra Club’s 120-year history, we have joined the ranks of visionaries of the past and present to engage in civil disobedience, knowing that the issue at hand is so critical, it compels the strongest defensible action,” Michael Brune, executive director of the environmental organization, said.

“We cannot afford to allow the production, transport, export and burning of the dirtiest oil on Earth via the Keystone XL pipeline. President Obama must deny the pipeline and take decisive steps to address climate disruption, the most significant issue of our time.”

Taylor Swift Writing About Conor Breakup? He’s Not Worried

Taylor, 23, often finds writing inspiration in her exes, but we suspect she’ll steer away from this topic. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Conor doesn’t expect his musical ex to write about him. “He is happy for her in whatever she does. The break was a healthy break with no drama, so he has no reason to be upset,” our source said. “[Conor] isn’t worrying about a song made about him and doesn’t believe there is a song about him on her new album.”

Are you surprised that Conor was arrested, HollywoodLifers?
