Of course, there are a plethora of Hollywood stars coming out against President Trump.
But those same Hollywood elites were punched in the mouth with the realization that one of their own, Harvey Weinstein, was a sexual predator.
But now there’s an A-list actress who just called out Hollywood for their blatant hypocrisy.
Many actors and actresses expressed their disdain towards Harvey’s actions that span nearly 4 decades.
Some of them have owned up to knowing about Harvey though, like screenwriter Scott Rosenberg and director Quentin Tarantino.
While Rosenberg claimed that everybody knew, Tarantino recently said,
“I knew enough to do more than I did,” he said, citing several episodes involving prominent actresses.
“There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things.”
“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard,” he added. “If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”
And this is what actress Jessica Chastain, known for Interstellar, Zero Dark Thirty, The Martian and the ultra-liberal movie Miss Sloane, blasted Hollywood for – the blatant hypocrisy in the industry.
Chastain criticized Hollywood for acting like they’re the moral authority and they got a rude awakening because she’s right; they’re not.
“Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain went directly after a key issue that, in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal, will affect Tinseltown for at least a generation — the fact that the decades-long, industry-wide cover-up of sexual misconduct has destroyed whatever residual moral authority Hollywood had left.
Speaking at an Elle magazine event Monday, Chastain said, “Oh we’re very quick to point the finger at others and address the issue with social action and fundraising.
Yet there is a clear disconnect between how we practice what we preach in our industry.”
She added, “We rally against the presidential candidate who slants a narrative of his sexual assault as mere locker room talk, but at the same time we ignore the stories and warnings of sexual predators in our offices.”
While the knock against President Trump is a myth perpetrated by a dishonest national media that continues to lie about Trump “admitting” to sexual harassment in the infamous Access Hollywood tape (he did not), Chastain’s overall point is dead on.
There is nothing leftwing Hollywood enjoys more than to spend $50 million on a movie no one will see as a means to scold and look down upon normal Americans, most especially conservatives and Christians, who live in the suburbs, the south or anywhere not on a coast.
After Hollywood’s defense of admitted child rapist Roman Polanski ten years ago, this was already laughable.
The Weinstein scandal, however, is something altogether different.
The public now knows that the very same Hollywood that jumped on the War on Women bandwagon, that slashed and burned every Republican in sight over the issue, that backed Hillary Clinton… That his industry has the dirtiest and most disgusting backyard in corporate history.
While Hollywood donned their shrill pussyhats and stridently lectured the rest of us, Tinseltown was aggressively shielding, enabling, and protecting countless predators and harassers.
And these harassers and predators are still being shielded.”
Maybe more of the Hollywood elite will begin to come around to the notion that they’re an immoral industry.
