Two-faced Hollywood types are about a rare as outraged social justice warriors in Ferguson. You can’t swing a dead cat on Santa Monica Boulevard without bumping into some actor spouting his views on how Americans should live their lives while at the same time raking in mega-cinebucks portraying precisely the behavior they decry. But we live in the 21st century now, a time in which it’s easy to publicize and mock that kind of sanctimonious malarkey. An era in which it’s easy to call the hypocrites out on their deceitful double-dealing. Take, for instance, the ads that have recently appeared on bus shelters around the Los Angeles area . . .
“Redesigned” versions of the movie poster for Liam Neeson’s new action release, Run All Night, appeared around Los Angeles today – the work of street artists offended by Neeson’s anti-second amendment rhetoric.
As someone once said, the way to deal with intransigent opposition is to punch back twice as hard. It’s a start, anyway.
