Former Full House star Jodie Sweetin was seen Monday for the first time since was shoved to the ground by police officers during an abortion rights protest march in Los Angeles over the weekend. 

Sweetin, best known for playing Stephanie Tanner on ‘Full House,’ also describes herself on her social media profiles as an activist. She was with a large group of protesters marching on a freeway this weekend, one of the many demonstrations that took place in response to the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. 

Video posted to Instagram shows Sweetin, dressed all in black toting a megaphone, close LAPD officers who had formed a line across the freeway. 

The officers suddenly push Sweetin back toward the crowd, causing her to stumble over the curb and into the freeway where a group of protesters caught her. 

She was seen Monday arriving at her Southern California home with visible bruising around her arms stemming from the incident. She was wearing a green tank top, jeans and sunglasses, with blue slippers, a drink in her hand and a bag around her arm.

 At one point, perhaps in a nod to her activism, Sweetin was seen carrying a rainbow-colored bag with various liberal slogans on it, including ‘Black Lives Matter’ and “Silence is Violence.’ 

The original poster of the Instagram video, photographer Michael Ade, claimed in his post that Sweetin was thrown to the ground while trying to lead a group of peaceful protestors away from the freeway.

‘It pained me to see @JodieSweetin thrown to the ground by members of the LAPD as she was trying to lead a group of peaceful protestors away from the freeway…SMH @LAPDHQ what are y’all doing?

‘Jodi is the definition of a real one and fortunately she’s okay! But for others who choose to protest today move with caution and keep your head on swivel. It’s going to be a very long summer.’

Sweetin told TMZ that she’s OK following the incident and said she was proud of the hundreds who showed up for the protests. 

‘I’m extremely proud of the hundreds of people who showed up yesterday to exercise their First Amendment rights and take immediate action to peacefully protest the giant injustices that have been delivered from our Supreme Court,’ Sweetin told TMZ. 

‘Our activism will continue until our voices are heard and action is taken. This will not deter us, we will continue fighting for our rights. We are not free until ALL of us are free.’
