These cause du jour celeb montage videos usually drip with so much sanctimony that I nearly get nauseous watching them, but this one is different — I actually did get nauseous watching it:
Yes, Hollywood — a beacon for America when it comes to moral and ethical values both on and off screen — wants us to demand Congress do something about gun violence.
Ok… here’s a proposal: Demand that Hollywood lead by example, or else we’ll make it illegal for Hollywood to in any way to glorify violence in their films and TV shows. There’s plenty of it. Hollywood wants to lecture about responsibility but never has the courage to look in the mirror. But in reality, Hollywood, like Gloria Swanson, is not ready for their closeup.
And was that Jamie Foxx I saw demanding a plan to address gun violence? The same guy who recently joked about all the white people he got to kill in his latest movie? And Will Ferrell? Please. I saw Beyonce in there too… maybe the plan she demands from government should include somebody talking to her husband about the lyrics that he puts into kids’ heads. Sarah Silverman speaking up for “houses of faith”? Hahaha!
This bunch is beyond parody.
