Cops Arrest Elton John’s Broadway Songwriting Partner on “Devil Wears Prada” for Cheering on Protestors from Stoop

Share

NYPD over zealousness hit a really sour note Thursday. Cops arrested songwriter Shaina Taub, who’s writing the musical “The Devil Wears Prada” with Elton John. They also arrested her husband and possibly a delivery boy. Cops arrested Taub and husband Matt Gehring, a Broadway performer and writer, while they encouraged peaceful protestors on the Upper West Side.

Shaina wrote on Twitter: “last night my husband and I got arrested on the stoop of our building on the UWS just after 8 pm. we were cheering on a peaceful protest on our block. this was my small visceral window into the police brutality black folks have experienced for centuries…”

The cops also also arrested a delivery boy. Shaina observed: “we were in the cop car with this young gentleman. he had every right to be out there and the way the cops treated him was disgusting.”

Eventually Taub reported: “we were in the cop car with this young gentleman. he had every right to be out there and the way the cops treated him was disgusting.”

Needless to say, NYPD will be welcome next year when “The Devil Wears Prada” opens on Broadway.
