Climate Activists Disrupt Swedish TV Show, Receive Rude Awakening
A group of climate activists attempted to disrupt a Swedish television program, but things didn’t go as planned. The activists rushed the stage of Friday’s broadcast of “Let’s Dance” on TV4, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail.
However, one of the activists was promptly met with a blow from an overhead camera rig. The incident was caught on camera and has since gone viral on social media.

The activists, affiliated with the group Restore Wetlands, deployed powdered paint and a banner in the midst of a dance performance by Olympic cross-country skier Charlotte Kalla and her partner, Tobias Karlsson, the report said.
It’s unknown if the cameraman intended to strike the heckler with the rig, with the timing of the act suggesting he may have merely intended to block them off. Security personnel arrived seconds after the camera rig struck one activist with considerable force.
Let’s Dance Interrupted by Climate Change Protest
During a live performance on Let’s Dance, dancers Karlsson and Kalla were interrupted by an unexpected guest – a camera-wielding climate change protester. The protester, part of the Återställ Våtmarker movement, ran onto the stage with a sign reading “Restore Wetlands” and began shouting about the government’s inaction on climate change.
Despite the disruption, Karlsson and Kalla continued their performance, unfazed by the protester’s statement of political militancy. Another angle of the act captured the moment the camera collided with a demonstrator – from the perspective of the impromptu crowd control device.
