I only boycott/ignore those who are truly obnoxious when they talk politics. Like Julia Roberts saying at some event something about finding “Republican” in the dictionary between “reptile” and “repugnant.” Also, the fugly Maggie Gyllenhaal, who was desperate to sound smart and said some crap about how we somehow “deserved” 9/11. Sean Penn — no explanation necessary.
But if a performer is just a Dem and doesn’t trash the country (or even Repubs), then it doesn’t affect my viewing decisions.
Well said — I’m not going to worry about entertainers & performers I may disagree with, however strongly. Live and let live. It IS a free country. But if they publicly trash and spit upon my beliefs and/or my country, if they express contempt and disrespect for me and my family etc., then I will try very hard not to let them have any of my entertainment dollars.
I only wish that Julia Roberts, Sean Penn, the Dixie Sluts and all of their ilk could crash & burn so completely that this simple little lesson could be learned.
We live in an unjust world where the powers that be choose a horse face no talent hack like Julia Roberts over a beautiful and talented woman like Jennifer Connolly. Don’t get me started on the public’s fascination with the likes of Will Smith and (until recently) Tom Cruise.
