Americans are sick and tired of being preached to by Hollywood elites.
Actors, writers, and directors use their platforms to push leftist values relentlessly.
Now one actor is slamming the movie that made him famous to further a left-wing agenda.
If there’s one thing people hate, it’s a hypocrite.
And Hollywood is filled with them.
Perhaps that’s why box office totals are slumping, and awards shows are bleeding viewers each year.
Americans are sick and tired of the finger-wagging and double standards.
The same people that criticize Donald Trump for his history with women defended Bill Clinton for decades.
Democrats only recently began throwing Bill under the bus when he was no longer politically valuable, but they were still mainly quiet on his close ties to infamous “Lolita Express” billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
The Democrat Party is intertwined with Hollywood, so the same hypocrisy exists in Tinseltown.
Hollywood celebrities chastised America with the #MeToo movement.
Meanwhile, they let Harvey Weinstein rampage from one young starlet to the next without any repercussions.
And Weinstein’s misdeeds were well known.
Even people outside the industry had heard whispers for years.
Now actor/writer/director Jonah Hill is the latest entry into the “Do as I say, not as I do” pantheon of Hollywood leftists.
During a press tour for his coming-of-age film Mid-90s, Hill spoke about the sophomoric comedies peppered throughout his career.
He told an audience, “I love those films, but I also think that if you look back at those films, a lot of what they’re showing is major bro comedy, and bro masculinity.”
Hill took direct aim at Superbad, the smash hit comedy that give him his first starring role back in 2007.
Hill said, “I’m learning I’ve got to unlearn a lot of stuff, and maybe some of the people that liked ‘Superbad’ will come with me on that journey.”
Suddenly an irreverent comedy about two teenage boys is “problematic.”
One of the reasons Superbad resonated with fans is because it felt authentic.
Teenagers aren’t exactly the most politically correct group, so trying to make some uber-PC teen sex comedy would be a disaster.
However, the authoritarian left is taking over Hollywood pushing out the old school liberals, who were obnoxious, but at least believed in free speech.
Unsurprisingly, Judd Apatow—the producer of Superbad—and Seth Rogen—the co-writer of the film—have also taken hard-left turns.
They’ve both railed against “offensive humor,” which is an affront to their comedic roots.
Apatow and Rogen—particularly Apatow, who’s worth over $100 million—have made fortunes off of “gay” jokes and bro humor.
But now they want to lecture everyone else on what passes for acceptable comedy.
Apatow has also been highly critical of Trump and other prominent Republicans.
And Seth Rogen refused to take a picture with Paul Ryan’s son, then bragged about it on a late-nite comedy show.
These are the tolerant, empathetic people that think they know how everyone else should lead their lives.
