Arguably the most honourable reason you can be arrested in this day and age is forceful activism; that is, peaceful protest that involves trespassing and generally being an inconvenience to the people you're campaigning against.

Following the sexual misconduct allegations against actor Aziz Ansari last month that left the internet divided, the star’s friend Amy Schumer spoke about the fallout and where she stands regarding the wider #MeToo movement.
The week after the Golden Globe Awards, at which Ansari won an award for his acclaimed series ‘Master of None’, an unnamed woman alleged in an article via Babe.net that the actor had tried to coerce her into sex without her consent while at his apartment.
She later texted him to say his conduct had made her “uneasy” – Ansari apologised for misreading the situation. Following the publication of the article, Ansari addressed the allegations, explaining that he “took her words to heart” and responded privately to her.
Schumer clarified the content of a report in Variety earlier this week about pay parity with Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock - saying she didn't insist on getting paid as much as them.

She said that, while she did ask for a pay increase on her original $11 million deal for her ‘The Leather Special’, she did not ask to get paid the same amount as Rock and Chappelle – because they’re the two of greatest comedians ever and deserve more, according to her.
