Octavia Spencer wasn't on location for Thursday's film shoot for a Season 2 flashback scene in South Los Angeles' historic Leimart Plaza Park that was disrupted by protesters concerned with the local plight of the homeless. "Specifically, the organized protesters objected to how filming was allowed to go on in areas like Leimert Plaza Park while the jurisdiction have been denied to those without a roof over their heads," reports Deadline's Dominic Patten. "Though the gates at Leimert Plaza Park are now open during the day, many parks have been locked up or greatly restricted by civic officials in recent months due to the coronavirus pandemic. With around ten Truth Be Told crew members on location, the FilmLA permitted shoot came to a halt around 3 PM as things got heated very quickly, I hear. Nearby vendors wanted the filming to continue, even though some protestors said that they were there for the vendors themselves." Patten adds that the LAPD arrived on scene as "the situation began to escalate." Truth Be Told was filming a flashback scene featuring younger versions of Spencer's podcast host Poppy Parnell and her producer Noa Havilland, portrayed by Katherine LaNasa. Because it was a flashback scene, neither Spencer nor LaNasa were at the location. Truth Be Told isn't the only show to be met with protests while filming on location in L.A.. In 2018, Starz's Vida was protested for promoting gentrification -- after filming a scene about gentrification.
