‘Euphoria’ star Hunter Schafer among 33 protesters arrested during Biden’s NYC ‘Late Night’ taping

“Euphoria” star Hunter Schafer was among 33 protesters taken into police custody for storming 30 Rock during the taping of President Biden’s “Late Night” appearance Monday, cops and sources said.

The 25-year-old actress and model was issued a summons for trespassing, according to sources, after participating in the protest demanding a cease-fire to Israel’s relentless bombardment of Gaza, which has been carried out in response to Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on the Jewish state.

Schafer — who plays “Jules” on the HBO teen drama — was photographed wearing a “Cease-fire now” t-shirt while being escorted out by an NYPD officer with her hands restrained behind her back.

She joined other protesters with the organization “Jewish Voice for Peace” as they sat in the lobby of 30 Rock holding banners reading “Jews to Biden: Stop arming genocide” and “Lasting cease-fire,” according to videos posted to social media.

“No more weapons, no more war. Cease-fire is what we’re fighting for,” the group chanted along with: “Not in our name.”

Israel’s retaliatory bombardment and ground offensive against Hamas has killed approximately 30,000 Gazans — including thousands of children and women, according to the Hamas-run health ministry in the territory.

The Jewish nation launched the attack after Hamas terrorists infiltrated Israel and killed 1,200 people, mostly civilians, and took more than 200 hostages.

Biden, 81, addressed the topic of a cease-fire while making an ice cream run with “Late Night” host Seth Meyers after the protesters demanded an end to the deadly attack.

The president said a new pause in the fighting could come within days.

“I hope by the end of the weekend,” he told reporters inside the ice cream parlor next door to the Peacock Network’s headquarters. “My national security adviser tells me that we’re close, we’re close, we’re not done yet. My hope is by next Monday we’ll have a cease-fire.”

But despite the protesters’ demands for a “lasting” cease-fire, the Biden administration has noted that they are only advocating for a temporary one that would last six weeks at most.

“We still don’t believe that a general cease-fire, meaning a permanent cease-fire, that this is the right time for that — a cease-fire that leaves Hamas in control and alleviates any responsibility for them to release the hostages,” White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said.
