Oakland DJ Bored Lord arrested at solidarity protest, bail fundraiser launched

Update 18:30 BST 30/08/2020: According to an update from twitter user @tomudj, bail has posted for Bored Lord via a bondsman and she is likely to be released from custody today.

Bored Lord has reportedly been arrested at a solidarity protest in Oakland, California.

According to a GoFundMe page launched for her bail fund, the DJ and producer took part in a demonstration last night (30th August). Hundreds have taken to the streets of Oakland since Wednesday (26th) in solidarity with protestors in Kenosha, Wisconsin over the police shooting of 29-year-old Black man Jacob Blake last week. 

Following her arrest, Bored Lord is reportedly facing felony charges with a bail of $50,000.

“Daria has always been one to put herself in the ringer for whats right!” the GoFundMe page reads. “She is one of the most chill, passionate, incredibly smart, empathic, talented, community leaders I know. HELP GET HER HOME QUICKLY AND SAFELY! Her loved ones are terrified for her safety. Not only is going to jail terrifying, but as a QUEER TRANS WOMAN we need to protect her. Her act was a hit for our protection.”
