By Mark Pygas

Hollywood royalty has an incredible platform to bring awareness to any political or social issue, but far too often, celebrities are all talk and no action. 

That, however, cannot be said of Divergent star and Secret Life Of The American Teenager alum Shailene Woodley, who has had a very busy 24 hours. 

On Monday afternoon, thousands (which quickly turned into millions) watched on Facebook Live as actress Shailene Woodley was arrested for trespassing while protesting the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline.

The 1,168 mile-long pipeline, which is intended to transport oil through Iowa, Illinois, and the Dakotas, has been the subject of intense debate and been fiercely opposed by environmentalists and Native Americans, as the project has the potential to damage the nearby sacred Sioux burial grounds and contaminate the Standing Rock Reservation's water supply. Woodley has been protesting the pipeline publicly for months.

As she was being handcuffed, the actress continued to speak to the camera.
