The internet was shocked to see Casey Anthony, the woman who was put on trial for the death of her toddler daughter and eventually acquitted, protesting at a demonstration against President Donald Trump in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The Feb. 4 protest drew around 3,000 protestors to Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate, where marchers held signs and rallied against the president. Anthony was one of those protesting at the march, and though she declined to speak on camera, she told WPTV she was opposed to Trump's policies, the Palm Beach Post reports.
The march was organized by South Florida Activism and Women's March PBC after Trump signed an executive order banning citizens from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S. The protest, which ended just outside the gates 25 feet from Mar-a-Lago, was reportedly peaceful, with no arrests, according to a tweet from local police.
Anthony was acquitted in 2011 of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony. Since then, Anthony has lived in Palm Beach County, and was seen at the protest wearing a backwards Cleveland Indians baseball cap, according to the Epoch Times. She is rarely seen in public.
Anthony's acquittal was met with outrage and protests from those who believed she had killed her daughter, a sentiment that reportedly still affects her day-to-day life, according to People magazine. A spokeswoman for the Department of Corrections once referred to Anthony as "one of the most hated women in America."
A source close to Anthony said there's "not much is going on in her life."
"She gets up each day, hangs around, checks the internet, takes some pictures, and doesn't do much," said the source. "She can’t hold a real job, and she doesn't really make a lot of friends, for obvious reasons. When people find out about her history, they usually bail on her. She's 30, with very few friends her age."
"She’s got enough money to live, but not enough to really do anything," the source added. "She sort of lives like an old person, on a fixed income ... She’s bored, and she complains about boredom all the time."
