Woman With ‘F*ck Trump’ Truck Sticker Has Been Arrested

A Texas woman’s pickup truck received national attention this month because of the large and profane decal that read: “FUCK TRUMP AND FUCK YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM.” Of course, this message was pissing a lot of people off in the Lone Star state, so much so that local authorities were considering charging the owner—identified as Karen Fonseca—with disorderly conduct. On Thursday, Fonseca was arrested.

According to Houston’s KHOU, the woman was taken into custody for an outstanding warrant. She posted bond and was released shortly after.

“I had just bought me soup was going to go to the house. I turn around and he says, ‘I'm not going to put handcuffs on you. I'll follow you to your house, park your truck and come with us,’” Karen Fonseca said after her release. “I go, 'A warrant? I've been doing background checks recently, and they've all come out clear.’”

The warrant stems from a 2015 incident in which Fonseca was accused of fraudulent possession or use of identifying information. The case was reported reviewed in July of this year, when the warrant was issued.

Fonseca said she was convinced her politics played a part in her arrest.

“I'm almost certain it does have to do with this,” she said. “People abuse the badge, and in my opinion, money talks. When you're in politics, people know how to work the system.”

The women’s truck went viral after Bend County Sheriff Troy E. Nehls posted an image of it on Facebook asking the public to identify the owner. He wrote: “I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359. If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you. Our Prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modification to it.”

After many people and organizations, including the ACLU, accused him of ignoring First Amendment rights, Nehls insisted he wasn’t trying to censor the owner; he just wanted to “prevent a potential altercation between the truck driver and those offended by the message.”

Foresca and her husband, Mike Foresca, told KHOU they don’t intend to remove the decal.

“No plans to take it down,” Mike Foresca said. “Unless he can show me where it says that in the law book, it's not coming down until the weather takes it down or I replace it with something else.”

Zedd Details How He Created ACLU Benefit Concert In 72 Hours

Following the travel ban signed by President Trump earlier this month that disallowed travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries to enter the U.S., Zedd announced a spontaneous benefit concert aimed at supporting the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). He reached out via his Twitter to call on likeminded artists to join the effort and support the acceptance and equal rights of all people, quickly recruiting the likes of Skrillex, Imagine Dragons, Tinashe, Incubus, Macklemore and more. The date for the official benefit concert, he told his fans, will be April 3 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

In honor of his valiant idea and quick execution, Zedd sat down with Rolling Stone to discuss his personal philosophy behind the travel ban and the details regarding the formation of the historic event. Despite not being born in America, Zedd said he felt a personal connection to the victims of the situation.

“To be honest, [the travel ban] hasn’t directly affected me in any way. I also realize we’re only a couple weeks into this presidency. But coming from someone who was born in one country, lived in another and then in another – without a visa or a green card – I do feel a personal connection to what’s happening. And I like what the ACLU stands for. It’s not necessarily anti-Trump. It fights for everyone’s liberties. With this concert, I just want to reach people and make them more aware; let them make their own decisions.”

Zedd told Rolling Stone that Skrillex was the first to respond to his call, but that Incubus was the band that he was the most excited to work with.

“[They were] part of my musical education. I used to watch their Alive at Red Rocks DVD all the time, so I grew up wanting to play that stage the most. “Drive” really grabbed me and my friends. And A Crow Left of The Murder is one of my favorite albums.”

He described himself as a “pain in the ass” when it comes to production, due to his strict attention to the minute details that go into songwriting. He’ll push an entire release if he’s unsatisfied with a small portion of a song, he said. It’s that perfectionism, however, that he said led him to organize the ACLU benefit so efficiently.

“When we were designing the show poster, we went through a ton of revisions until I felt each artist was represented equally. You know, some logos appear larger than others because of the font and style. I was playing with the logo sizes until an hour and a half before the announcement. I tend to overthink things [Laughs].” 

In closing, Zedd revealed a funny tidbit about his rise to stardom. He told Rolling Stone that before Skrillex convinced him to do so, he would shy away from speaking over the microphone during his live shows.

“When my English was really bad, I didn’t use the microphone at all. And Skrillex, who I toured with a lot, was like, “You have to talk to the crowd.” But even asking people to shine their [cell phone] lights was a lot for me [Laughs]. It took me a long time before I felt comfortable. One time, I addressed the crowd as Los Angeles when I played New York. It was really embarrassing.”

Zedd Takes On Trump Supporter On Twitter

Zedd has never made it a point to hide his distaste for Trump and his policies, especially the recent executive order banning immigrants from seven major Muslim countries in the middle east.

In part in response to the Muslim ban, and otherwise to raise money for a good cause, Zedd launched a collaborative fundraising concert with the ACLU called #WELCOME, with performers like Skrillex, Halsey, Macklemore and more donating their time to the cause.

Since then, Zedd still hasn’t ceased his outspoken opinions against Trump, once again igniting something in his fanbase yesterday when he referenced the spelling error in our president’s official inauguration poster, available for sale on the official White House website.

One user seemed to take particular offense, and Zedd chose to respond to this individual, referencing his $4 million mansion and German citizenship.

The ACLU benefit concert will go down April 3 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Zedd Talks Benefit Concert & New Music In Radio Interview

Zedd’s ACLU benefit concert, #WELCOME, went on sale this morning. To help promote the cause and talk a little about what’s going on and why he felt he needed to do something like this in the first place, he stopped by 102.7 KIIS FM and spoke with host JoJo.

The 10-minute conversation had a strange course, beginning by talking about Zedd’s obsession with juicing and his “tastefully inappropriate” videos when he asks his trainer to “shake his bottle.” It’s become something of a recurring theme on Instagram Stories and Snapchat, and JoJo is absolutely thrilled about it. That took up the first approximately 4 minutes of the conversation.

From there, the conversation moves to Zedd’s new collaboration with Alessia Cara entitled “Stay,” coming out on the 24th. Zedd plays about 15 seconds of the track over his laptop speakers into the studio mic, and quickly cuts it off before we get any real idea what it’s about. The conversation gets to albums, and Zedd mentions that there might be another Zedd album, there might not be – but his current focus is writing as much music and putting it out as fast as he can.

He also talks about being a celebrity in the world, including an uncomfortable situation in a customs line.

The conversation ends talking about the ACLU benefit concert, #WELCOME, happening April 3 at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, with Skrillex, Bebe Rexha, Macklemore, Incubus, Imagine Dragons and more.

MUST DIE! Drops Fiery Political Anthem ‘Resist’

In a fiery new track posted to his SoundCloud today, accompanied with an even more fiery video, MUST DIE! has just dropped what looks to the first EDM protest song explicitly aimed towards President Donald J. Trump. While plenty of other DJs have been outspoken against President Trump’s policies to date, namely Zedd, this marks the first official protest song.

The track cleverly interlaces hard-hitting dubstep in between President Trump-related sound bytes – including the infamous ‘grab her by the pussy,’ clips from critical media members, ‘Fuck Donald Trump’ chants and more to display MUST DIE!’s not so subtle political message.

The Facebook post accompanying the video also reads ‘USE YOUR VOICE WHILE YOU STILL CAN’ while urging for donations to the ACLU. 

Stream the video below.

Zedd’s ACLU Fundraiser Concert Is Happening; Location, Date & Lineup Dropping Tomorrow

Just days ago, Zedd announced that he would divert all efforts into creating a charity concert in support of the ACLU, in order to fight against the unreasonable #MuslimBan efforts from the current administration. With support from his team and likely dozens or hundreds of other people, such an event will be made a reality.

Today, Zedd confirmed the event, and further announced that the location, date, and phase 1 lineup will be dropping tomorrow. The specification of a “phase 1” lineup would lead us to believe that this is going to be a bigger event than we actually thought, which is all the better.

We’ll be sure to update you with full details tomorrow when they become available.

The ACLU raised $24 million last weekend, more than six times what it normally receives in donations per year.

Zedd Calls On Camila Cabello, Sia, Macklemore, and Grimes To Put On Show In Support of The ACLU

Zedd has been one of the most outspoken critics of President Donald Trump and his policies over the last year or so and, following the newly implemented ‘Muslim immigration ban,’ has called on fellow superstars to join him in putting on a show in support of the ACLU.

ACLU is the American Civil Liberties Union who, with the help of a federal judge, have managed to block President Trump’s ban on constitutional grounds. Over the last day or so, plenty of high-profile musicians, like the four mentioned by Zedd, have been actively tweeting their outrage and raising money to combat President Trump’s latest policy move.

While there’s no indication whether or not this charity concert will actually end up taking place, it instills hope to see musicians from across the spectrum come together on common ground, be it political views or not.
