In an act of protest against Guantanamo Bay's process of force-feeding detainees who are currently on a hunger strike, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) had the procedure performed on himself. The video below is a bit startling, until you remember Mos Def is an actor, and certainly not the greatest.
Woah, that was intense, right? A faceless medical staff strapping you down and forcing a tube through your nose and into your stomach. I recall quite a few college acquaintances who went underwent similar procedures when hitting the sauce a little too hard freshman year leading to hospitalization and the ole' stomach pump. From what I understand, none of them shed tears. Sure, it's a matter of principle and the detainees are surely resisting, but Mos Def describes the procedure at the end of the video as "unbearable". A quick search of how to properly insert the tube brought up this video. Either Mos Def was exaggerating, or this dude is as tough as Stallone in Over The Top
