Denizens at the Ecuadorian embassy in London are probably planning a celebratory luncheon today, and for once, won’t have to worry about the leftovers disappearing. Any leftover cake can safely go into the office fridge because the world’s most notorious lunch thief, Julian Assange, was evicted today, kicking and screaming as he was arrested by British authorities. And his good friend Pamela Anderson is mad. Big mad.
Here’s Julian being dragged out of the embassy after the Ecuadorian government revoked his asylum for being a terrible house guest; specifically, for pissing on the toilet seat and interfering with international affairs. The President of Ecuador said they had “reached its limit on the behaviour of Mr Assange“, according to BBC.

Apparently, Pamela saw this on the news, was utterly shocked by Julian’s hiatus beard, and #tooktotwitter in his defense. David Letterman could not be reached for comment.
And the USA ?
This toxic coward of a President
He needs to rally his base? –
You are selfish and cruel.
You have taken the entire world backwards.
You are devils and liars and thieves.
And you will ROTT
WE WILL RISE ✊

Pamela’s been one of Julian’s most vocal supporters and had visited him in the embassy many times since he took up residence there in 2012 after feeling rape charges in Sweden (prosecutors dropped those charges are being urged to re-charge him now that he’s out). So you’d think she’d know how to spell Ecuador by now.
Ecuador* blondie… Ecuador!

But I guess NOTT. Also there to support Julian was fashion designer Vivienne Westwood who crawled out of her faerie treehouse to protest his arrest, and was filmed by an assistant/muse/International woman of mystery?

Julian’s stint on The Real World: Ecuadorian Embassy may have come to a close but his next reality show is bound to get huge ratings. Upon his arrest, Julian was expeditiously taken to a judge who found him guilty of “failing to surrender to the court” stemming from the 2012 Swedish rape allegations. Julian, of course, says he’s innocent (via BBC):
The court heard that during his arrest at the embassy he had to be restrained and shouted: “This is unlawful, I am not leaving.”
Finding him guilty, District Judge Michael Snow said Mr Assange’s behaviour was “the behaviour of a narcissist who cannot get beyond his own selfish interest”.
After his arrest for failing to surrender to the court, police said he had been further arrested on behalf of US authorities under an extradition warrant.
The US Department of Justice said in a statement that the extradition was in connection with federal charges of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion, relating to the Chelsea Manning revelations. They carry a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

And it sounds like the Big Bad US of A may not be the only ones looking for a piece of Julian’s hide (calm your tits, Pamela, it’s figurative speech).
We are going to do everything we possibly can to get the swedish police investigation re-opened so that Assange can be extradited to Sweden and prosecuted for rape. No rape victim should have to wait 9 years to see justice be served.

But he shouldn’t worry. Pamela’s got your back, boo!

And if you’re worried about Julian’s cat, which you should be, the lucky puss has been living an Assange-free life for months:
For those concerned about Assange’s cat (which was part of the tension w/ his Ecuadorian hosts), he reportedly gave the cat away a while ago. https://t.co/vcqgBSgQ26
