This must be the time for extra-special rants from Hollywood types.
First, Meryl Streep throws fit at the Golden Globes in a mad rant at President-elect Donald Trump.
Now, Whoopi basically loses her mind.
From Weasel Zippers:
Wait, in the Seventies, Hollywood was run by “right-leaning” groups?
That should come as a surprise to anyone who was alive or knows anything about the period.
Hollywood in the Seventies was already well left.
Hollywood hasn’t been run by right-leaning groups since at least the early 1960s and probably more the 1950s.
“Actors have a different way of looking at stuff,” Whoopi says.
I agree, and that’s part of the problem with many, not an excuse. Hollywood actors tend to be quite self-centered and to believe they have the right to preach to ordinary Americans.
Whoopi can’t recall one right-leaning person who has ever lost his job for being a right leaning person?
Conservatives have been underground in Hollywood at least since the Eighties or they would not even get a job to lose.
To say that conservatives somehow deprived her of making a living is nonsense.
Whoopi is one of the highest paid women in the history of Hollywood. She’s worth $45 million, according to some estimates.
If that’s not being able to make a living, give me some of that!
Finally she says that Danny Glover and Sean Penn “ate a lot of poop” during the Bush administration?
Once again, both those people made a ton of money during the Bush administration and were not impeded from getting work.
Bush was considered a pariah in Hollywood. If anything criticism of him would earn you more work.
Perhaps rather than ranting at conservatives, Whoopi could reach across the aisle and try to see them for the real people that they are…
