'QAnon shaman' Captiol rioter Jake Angeli on hunger strike because he can't get organic food in detention, mom says

CAPITOL rioter Jake Angeli, also known as the "QAnon Shaman," won't eat in the detention center he's being held at because he can't get "all organic food."

Angeli, whose real name is Jacob Chansley, turned himself into the FBI on Saturday and made his first virtual court appearance on Monday.


The Phoenix native, 33, was pictured many times during the coup Donald Trump's supporters attempted on January 6 in DC, as Congress was working to certify the results of the 2020 election.

Angeli stuck out among the sea of Trump flags and MAGA hats as he wore a furry, horned hood, American flag face paint, and showed up topless.

He's now been arrested and charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

The public defender representing him on Monday said that the self-proclaimed shaman was on an "extremely restrictive" diet while he was in custody.


The defender suggested that Angeli wasn't eating for religious reasons, but the suspect's mother later said it was because "the detention facility won’t feed him all organic food."

The judge presiding over the case said Angeli's refusal to eat was "deeply concerning" and asked the public defender to work with US Marshals to address the dietary concerns, according to ABC 15.

Angeli was one of several Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol last Wednesday, and have since been arrested.

Stay-at-home dad Adam Johnson, who was seen grinning in the building as he carried House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's lectern, was also arrested, as was Air Force veteran Larry Rendall Brock, Jr., who was seen in the building carrying zip-ties.

Richard Barnett, the man seen cheerfully putting his feet up on a desk in Pelosi's office, has also been arrested.

Angeli, who claims to be a shaman who can travel among dimensions to fight pedophiles, told Newsy last week that he was not worried about charges.

"I'm not really all that worried about it because, in all honesty … I didn't break any laws. I walked through open doors," he said.

During his Monday hearing, Angeli did not make any statements regarding the charges against him.
