Anti-woke liberal Bill Maher slams Hollywood for hypocrisy on gun violence
The anti-woke liberal late night host, Bill Maher, slammed Hollywood for their hypocrisy on gun control and other woke issues on his show “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
“It’s funny. Hollywood is the wokest place on Earth, and every other area of social responsibility. They have intimacy coordinators on set to chaperone sex scenes. They hire sensitivity readers to go through and read scripts. Disney stood up to the “Don’t Say Gay” law. Another studio spent $10 million to digitally remove Kevin Spacey from a movie. But when it comes to the unbridled romanticization of gun violence, crickets,” Maher said Friday night.
And sure enough, Hollywood constantly injects woke nonsense into entertainment, making sure to be “inclusive,” or to “dismantle patriarchy” or slam conservative and American values in any way they can. Many actors and Hollywood elites often slam gun violence, as well. Yet despite that, movies continue to get more and more gun-filled and violent.
Of course, Maher latches onto this and insinuates that the gun violence problem America may have, in reference to a string of gruesome and dreadful mass shootings in recent months, stems from Hollywood glorification of violence.
Maher may be wrong to blame movie violence for the increase in gun violence, or he may have a point. In either case, he effectively points out the hypocrisy of the woke Hollywood movie industry.
Actors who have preached for gun control, such as Mathew McConaughey, have also appeared in several gratuitously violent gun-toting TV and film roles. In his case, The Gentlemen and True Detective come to mind.
Perhaps for Hollywood, being woke only matters so far as it gets them money. And in the hierarchy of entertainment needs, gratuitous violence seems to trump gender studies majors and LGBT relationships.
