For years Hollywood has been holding up the public with protests to what they don’t like. It’s time the public hits back. For some reason, Hollywood thinks it is the voice of the people.
I have met Spike Lee several times. He is one of th ed most mercurial people whom I have ever met. He gives way to much importance to himself. For Lee to tell Hollywood to shut it down, the people should shut him down abd not go see his movies. After all Lee’s movies are fair at best.
Americans should take a stand; not only against Lee, but other actors who are radical activists. Hollywood has, does,and will continue to be boisterous about political issues. I have long tired of Barbara Streisand, H.g anoi Jane Fonda, Alec Baldwin and many others.
Actors should act and shut the hell up about politics. People do not want these people’s opinions about politics. Most actors have high school educations and we are not impressed by there politics.
Spike Lee calls for Hollywood to ‘shut it down’ in Georgia
By LINDSEY BAHR
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Director Spike Lee is calling for Hollywood production companies to leave Georgia over a law that would ban abortions as early as six weeks, upon detection of a fetal heartbeat.
Most studios that have commented have said they’re waiting to see if the so-called “heartbeat” law actually takes effect next year, or if the courts will block it. But at the arrivals line for Denzel Washington’s American Film Institute lifetime achievement tribute Thursday, Lee said now is the time for Georgia-based productions to “shut it down” and boycott the state’s booming film industry to drive change.
Lee acknowledged that a mass exodus could dent livelihoods, but cited black bus drivers affected by the Civil Rights Movement-era boycott in Montgomery.
“I know it’s going to affect people’s livelihood. But that’s how things change,” Lee said.
“You’ve got to be on the right side of history, and the state of Georgia and those other states, they’re wrong,” he added.
Georgia’s economy currently gets a $9.5 billion annual boost from the industry.
