The hatred that Hollywood celebrities show for anyone on the political spectrum who isn’t a progressive is a real-time example of why this country is so divided. Over the holiday weekend, a massive wave of outrage was created when a video went viral of a group of Catholic high school students were alleged to have racially harassed a Native American man at the March for Life Rally. It wasn’t until hours later that people realized that the media along with their allies in Hollywood had completely mischaracterized the events of what happened that day, leading to people verbally abusing and threatening physical violence against the high school kids on social media, Why? Because the kids were wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ hats.
It is no surprise late-night comedy has become a hotbed for progressive hate. A former Samantha Bee writer Travon Free’s recently had racist And anti-semitic tweets resurface. Late Show with Stephen Colbert writer Ariel Dumas apologized last year for tweeting about her happiness in helping to ruin Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s life. Sarah Silverman and Michelle Wolf’s progressive talk shows were recently canceled and every other late night host has become a battle of who can hate Donald Trump more.
The upcoming film, The Upside, has had an uphill battle from day one. The film that was shot and released at the Toronto Film Festival 2 years ago, has been held up due to the Harvey Weinstein Hollywood sex scandal. Co-star Kevin Hart is currently under fire for homophobic jokes made nearly a decade ago and now the film’s other co-star Bryan Cranston is under fire for playing a quadriplegic because he is allegedly taking a role away from disabled people.
There is a trend amongst people involved with the Marvel Cinematic Universe to either be politically far to the left or have extreme hate for conservatives. James Gunn, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johannsson, Don Cheadle, Adam McKay, Brie Larson, Elizabeth Olsen, Dave Bautista, and the list goes on and on. It’s pretty clear that Disney tends to favor a single worldview when it comes to the talent that they hire.
