This incident took over internet denizens quite light-heartedly.
What was the series of events?
The start of the decade went bumpy for Joaquin Phoenix as he was under a short-term arrest by police. The famous protest, which is popularly known as “Fire drill Friday” by Jane Fonda, is a climate change protest. The inspiration is drawn by young climate change activist Greta Thunberg’s protest around the Globe. Joaquin Phoenix was reportedly in this demonstration, which led to his arrest.

The short-term protest by police in Washington DC led to the internet getting flooded by memes. The internet denizens, after all, know how to draw entertainment. The fans love to associate Joaquin’s real-life behavior with his reel-life character persona of Arthur Fleck. Jane Fonda’s protest led to the arrest of many other famous celebs which could be the reason for the increasing popularity of “Fire drill Friday.” Albeit other celebs were supporting Fonda on the front line, Joaquin managed to grab the attention of his fans
The final verdict
Joaquin Phoenix is a person with strong beliefs and views, and he stands firm on them. This quality is seen in his real and reel life journey. It may land him in a soupy situation sometimes, but his aura is just unstoppable.
