11 Times Celebrities Shocked America with Common Sense

Recommended Posts

 Malevolent    3,261


Avid readers of entertainment media know that celebrities often say stupid things. In the era of President Donald Trump, celebrities say stupid things with ever-increasing regularity.

Chelsea Handler calls for a military coup against the president. Morrissey says he’d kill Trump to preserve the “safety of humanity.” Rosie O’Donnell says, well, practically anything at all.

Yet sometimes — not often, admittedly — a Famous Person will somehow escape the usually impenetrable bubble of utter obliviousness that encircles Hollywood to speak pure common sense. These comments are so infrequent — and so pleasantly surprising — that they’re often picked up by dozens of news outlets and promptly go viral among Americans still hopeful that there remains a shred of competence among those working in the entertainment business.

It’s not exactly a secret that many celebrities’ side gigs as political activists tend to hurt the commercial prospects for their films. But in most cases, it is not simply the fact that they have opinions that bother millions of ticket-buying Americans (it is a free country, after all); it is the vitriol and bigotry with which these celebrities attack the character and values of right-of-center Americans who disagree with them politically.

Celebrity venom and mockery of ordinary Americans has intensified ten-fold since President Trump’s election, and the corresponding box office collapse should be no surprise.

As Breitbart News contributor Patrick Courrielche put it in his recent three-part Big Hollywood exposé: “No one is saying celebrities can’t hold political views, or even speak about them. It’s the complete lack of respect for the Deplorables that’s biting them in the ass.”

Here, then, are eleven instances in which Hollywood celebrities — whether they realized it at the time or not — said something that actually resonated with the American public.

:angry-crowd:   Why does anyone listen to these nobodies? We don't know them personally.

They're not our neighbours so why do people think their opinion matter?

Their crap stinks more than the rest of the population and they think they have the right to tell us what to do.

:grumph:   How does that go again:  'Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.
