The topless protester that stormed the stage while Avril Lavigne presented an award at the 2023 Junos on Monday is speaking out.
Vancouver resident Casey Hatherly, 37, insisted she crashed Lavigne’s appearance during the ceremony, that was held at Edmonton’s Rogers Place, to raise awareness of environmental issues.
The activist, who goes by the first name Ever, spoke to reporters outside an Edmonton courtroom on Wednesday after a brief stint in jail at the Edmonton Remand Centre.
