They sure don’t seem to get it.
At a point in time when the public’s opinion of actors and other celebrities appears to be lower than ever, plenty of them insist on keeping on with the same idiotic behavior that has seen their stock with “regular folks” drop so substantially.
Take actress Mila Kunis, for example.
As reported by The Hill, Kunis appeared Thursday as a guest on TBS’s “Conan” and revealed to host Conan O’Brien that she has been making donations to Planned Parenthood each month in the name of Vice President Mike Pence, well-known for his staunchly pro-life views.
Explaining herself to O’Brien, Kunis said:
“I apologize if I’m offending anybody. It’s not so much a prank as much as I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do. And so as a reminder that there are women out there in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of recurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood.”
Kunis added, “Every month, to his office, he gets a little letter that says like, ‘An anonymous donation has been made in your name.’ I don’t look at it as a prank, this is like, I strongly disagree, and this is my little way of doing it. It’s a peaceful protest.”
Keep it up, Hollywood. Just keep it up.
