While appearing on TBS’ “Conan” last Thursday night, Hollywood actress and Jim Beam spokeswoman Mila Kunis decided to go political by revealing a stunt she pulls for Planned Parenthood every month. It didn't take long for this to backfire on her career in a huge way.
While appearing on the late night show, Kunis bragged to host Conan O'Brien that she has been making monthly donations to Planned Parenthood in the name of Vice President Mike Pence, who has actively been opposed to abortion.
Kunis was smug about her little protest, thinking she was hitting the Vice President where it hurts. However, she likely isn't laughing now, as conservative Twitter users made it clear that they did not see what she did as remotely funny:
Unfortunately, Kunis' attitude is typical of Hollywood stars these days. Actors aren't satisfied with simply being entertainers anymore. Instead, they feel that it is their duty to get up on soap boxes and preach to the public about their political beliefs, which are typically leftwing the vast majority of the times. It's not up to an actor to tell his/her fans how they should think about various political issues.
The response to Kunis' Planned Parenthood stunned shows that the average American is sick of being preached at by out-of-touch millionaire Hollywood star. Americans showed that in the last election, when they voted for President Donald Trump despite the fact that nearly every Hollywood celebrity begged them not to. By boycotting Jim Beam, Americans are letting Hollywood stars know that moving forward, there will be consequences to lecturing us about politics.
