Jeff Bezo’s Home Targeted by Activists Who Want to Abolish Amazon; and Rupert Grint Reveals Why He Can’t Watch Past the Third Harry Potter Film.
Activists Set Up Guillotine in Front of Jeff Bezo’s Home
On Sunday, activists set up a guillotine in front of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezo’s home in Washington, D.C. The activists reportedly demanded the abolishment of Amazon.
Making use of a bullhorn, one of the activists said, “It is still exploitation and when they become threatened, and we have no voice, the knives come out.” The activists appear to be part of a group called, “Abolish the Present Reconstruct Our Future.”
A sign in front of the guillotine read, “Support our poor communities not our wealthy men.”

A flyer from the group provided information about the event. It read:
“Amazon works directly with police to surveil us, stoking racist fears in the name of profit. Doubling down on their union busting and mistreatment of workers, Amazon fired and racially slandered labor organizer Chris Smalls. Join us to tell Bezos enough is enough!
END THE ABUSE AND PROFITEERING. ABOLISH THE POLICE, THE PRISONS, AND AMAZON.”

Rupert Grint Reveals Why He Can’t Watch Past the Third Harry Potter Film
Rupert Grint is famously known as the kid who played Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films. However, Grint isn’t exactly thrilled with the idea of rewatching his old wizarding school days. At least, not past the third movie anyway.
Grint revealed that not only can he not make it past the third movie, but he also “struggles to remember life” before his Harry Potter days.
“I think the early ones are okay. More time has passed. I can detach myself a bit more from that kid,” he said.
“I did see Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone not long ago, for the first time since the premiere, and I actually enjoyed looking back,” said Grint. “But the more recent ones I definitely couldn’t do.”
Grint recalled his days as a 10-year-old when he first landed the part of Ron and became a megastar overnight.
“From the moment I got the part, my life completely changed. It was a weird time and it was taken me a long while to process,” he said. “Just being invisible can still be difficult. Sometimes you just want to go to B&Q.”
Perhaps, Grint could just stick with Disney classic movies instead.
