Major Hollywood Actor Bashes Republicans At The Oscars

More News For You

For some reason, Hollywood actors and actresses feel like they need to let everyone know their political views and put in their two cents whenever they are in front of a camera. They have this delusion that they hold more political influence than the average person.

With elections coming up later this year, more and more celebrities feel the need to voice their opinions.

Brad Pitt used his moment in the spotlight at the Oscars as a platform to unleash on the Republican Party.

According to Fox News,

Several Oscar winners took the opportunity to inject politics into Sunday night’s festivities, starting with the telecast’s first famous victor, Brad Pitt, who took a shot at Republican senators who voted against calling witnesses at President Trump’s impeachment trial.

The four-time Academy Award nominee won the best-supporting actor accolade for his role as a stuntman in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” The win marked his first-ever Academy Award win for acting. He immediately took the stage and got political by taking a jab at senators who voted against Democrats request to call witnesses in the impeachment trial, specifically former National Security Adviser John Bolton, who claimed he was willing to testify.

“They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” Pitt said. “I’m thinking maybe Quentin [Tarantino] does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing.”
Later, backstage, when Pitt was asked why he chose to use his time this way he responded:

“I was really disappointed with this week. And I think when gamesmanship trumps doing the right thing, it’s a sad day and I don’t think we should let it slide. And I’m very serious about that.”

As Once Upon A Time continues to dominate this award season, Pitt was widely expected to win the Oscar, his first one in his 30 years acting career.
