Jessica Chastain Calls Out Hollywood - Confirms It Has No Moral Authority

Rebel Staff

Over the past few weeks, A-list Hollywood producer and top Democrat donor Harvey Weinstein has been hit with numerous rape and sexual assault allegations. Now, A-list star Jessica Chastain is speaking out to reveal the grim truth about Hollywood that this scandal has exposed. 

At Elle Magazine's Women In Entertainment event Monday evening, actress Jessica Chastain took her turn at the podium as an opportunity to call out hypocrisy in Hollywood. 

"This is an industry rife with racism, sexism and homophobia," she said, speaking to a room full of women including Laura Dern, Riley Keough and Aaron Sorkin. "It is so closely woven into the fabric of the business that we have become snowblind to the glaring injustices happening every day."

She continued, "Oh we're very quick to point the finger at others and address the issue with social action and fundraising. Yet there is a clear disconnect between how we practice what we preach in our industry."

Chastain is spot on with this assessment. Over the past year, wealthy Hollywood stars have lectured Americans about how "evil" President Donald Trump is, going so far as to accuse him of being a "sexual predator" despite the fact that no allegations against him have been proven. Meanwhile, the stars continued to work with Weinstein, whose sexual crimes were an open secret in Hollywood for decades. It seems leftist Hollywood stars have no problem covering up sexual assaults as long as they are filling their own pockets. 

Unfortunately, this kind of hypocrisy is nothing new in Hollywood. A-list directors like Woody Allen and Roman Polanski are heralded as legends and continue to make major films to this day despite the rape and sexual assault claims that have been made against them. It's ridiculous that Hollywood stars continue to shame Trump supporters for voting for a supposed "sexual predator" when they allow all of this to go on in their own industry unchallenged. 

In the end, Hollywood stars should stop lecturing the American people about politics and start focusing on their own life choices. What do you think about this? Sound off in the comments section below!

Rick said, "Wonder how much of this is going on right now with our own elitists in Ottawa. Not that the Fake Stream Media would report on it! "

If it is happening (and I have no doubt that it is), the Fake Stream Media is probably deeply involved with it, so no, they would not report on their own filth.

Rick Plesnik: I could tell you a few stories of what used to take place back in the mid 70’s with some of our Canadian Diplomats!! It happened/s everywhere and it certainly didn’t stop in 1979!

Given the quality of movies these days, Hollywood is going to become a digital industry and humans will be secondary to their needs.

Women are being portrayed in a more androgynous way to satisfy lesbian viewers. Aging actresses like Susan Sarandon, Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, are playing lesbian lovers instead of character roles. Men are winning Oscars for portraying transgender women, or is it transgender men??

Sad part is, the left will now portray themselves as the heroes for using Weinstein as their jumping off point to continue to attack President Trump, instead of learning the lesson.

Constantly dragging Woody Allen into this only confirms his complaint, that it is becoming an indiscriminate witch hunt. Try being less tribal, and exercising more nuance and attention to detail. Everyone who has ever been accused on the left is not an evil hypocrite, and everyone on the right is not an innocent. Suffice it to say that Hollywood as a whole has nothing to teach anyone else about morals and virtue.

I wouldn’t take any advice on any topic from Hollywood “stars”. They’re hardly desirable roll models.
