Hollywood would be nothing without blatant hypocrisy.
Leftist celebrities lecture the rest of the country while engaging in even worse behavior.
But one actor is calling out Hollywood elites for disgusting hypocrisy.
If leftists didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have standards at all.
For example, Oprah Winfrey can give a speech at the Golden Globes, lecturing America about sexual misconduct.
Meanwhile, Oprah was close friends with serial harasser and alleged rapist Harvey Weinstein, and he was just the tip of the spear of sexual predation in Hollywood.
Celebrities can lecture Americans about the immorality of walls while they live in gated communities with 24-hour private security.
They can sermonize about how destructive guns are while they’re escorted around by armed security guards.
Hollywood leftists can hold these contradictions with no consideration.
And the mainstream media are complicit, so there is no consequence to the gross hypocrisy.
However, some people within the belly of the beast are fed up with the double standard.
Actor Nick Cannon is tired of it.
Recently, activists pressured comedian Kevin Hart to step down from hosting the Oscars after years-old jokes about homosexuals were dredged up on social media.
Cannon was furious over Hart’s treatment and pointed out sacred cow leftist comediennes like Amy Schumer, Chelsea Handler, and Sarah Silverman have all made gay jokes without being forced to apologize.
Now Cannon is back at it.
The issue of blackface has become a hot-button political issue.
NBC fired Megyn Kelly after she mused that blackface as a Halloween costume was considered acceptable when she was a kid so long as it was an homage.
Kelly was attacked by her own NBC colleagues and labeled a racist.
But recently, Democrat Virginia governor Ralph Northam had a blackface scandal of his own.
Coincidentally, Virginia’s attorney general Mark Herring also admitted to wearing blackface, but neither were forced to resign.
Northam and Herring have seemingly survived their scandal, but Kelly was thrown on the pyre because she didn’t have the right politics.
The outrage over the Virginia blackface scandal prompted Nick Cannon to call out all the “woke” Hollywood liberals for looking the other way when they’re the perpetrators.
Cannon pointed out that Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, and Sarah Silverman have all worn blackface:
Are these your Kings of Late Night??? @JimmyFallon @JimmyKimmel you know I’m always on the side of the comedian and never pander to the sensitive, but I feel there needs to be some “truth & reconciliation” discussions and teachable moments amongst our communities. I’m ready and willing for the discourse, so who wants to step up to the table first? In the meantime, I’ll just leave this right here. Tell the Jimmys to holla at me!✊🏾

Silverman actually apologized for her stunt, but Kimmel and Fallon remain eerily silent.
Fallon’s case might be the most infuriating because he appeared in blackface on the same network that fired Megyn Kelly for her benign comment during a breezy panel discussion.
The left will never hold Kimmel and Fallon accountable because they’re too important as mouthpieces.
Late-nite comics are no longer tasked with being funny.
They’re now the frontlines of the left’s propaganda machine.
This is why the left’s ideas are so nonsensical.
There is no redemption for what they deem “racist,” but they themselves are allowed to be as racist as they want so long as they sufficiently bash the right.
