Hollywood Threatens to End Productions in Georgia Because of Republican Victory

Alyssa Milano, Ron Perlman and others are pushing for a boycott

Many Hollywood leftists are not happy that Democrat Stacey Abrams (pictured above center) lost her bid for the governorship in Georgia.

Abrams was defeated by Republican Brian Kemp.

Though she refused to concede for quite some time, she eventually admitted Kemp had beaten her and was the state’s rightful governor.

During her run for office, Abrams had quite a bit of help from Hollywood.

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey and comedic actor Will Ferrell both campaigned for Abrams and even went door to door to try and convince people to vote Democrat.

Hollywood’s answer to Abrams losing? Punish the state’s voters by pulling the many movie and television productions in Georgia.

“There are over 20 productions shooting in Georgia. Is the entertainment industry willing to support the economy of a totally corrupt state that suppresses democracy; where the winner isn’t the best choice for the people but the best schemer or crook?” tweeted “Charmed” actress Alyssa Milano (above left).

Frank Rich, executive producer of HBO’s “Veep,” also said Hollywood should punish Georgia workers.

“If Kemp wins in Georgia, Hollywood should put its money where its mouth is and pull all production out of the state,” he tweeted.

“Sons of Anarchy” star Ron Perlman (above right) said he himself would boycott any productions that were happening in Georgia that tried to hire him.

“To all my friends who are studio and network executives, if you choose to shoot movies and tv in Georgia, don’t bother to call me,” he tweeted.

“West Wing” and “Get Out” star Bradley Whitford also called on Hollywood to pull their productions out of Georgia.

“Brian Kemp is a corrupt, homophobic, unapologetic disenfranchiser of African American voters. If he seizes power, Hollywood needs to use it’s leverage and pull out of Georgia. Studios need to put their money where their mouth is and stand up to hate. #boycottgeorgia,” he wrote.

“Rescue Me” star Steven Pasquale tweeted his agreement with Whitford.

“Hundred percent agreed. Billions of Hollywood dollars spent and created in GA. We can do something about this.#boycottgeorgia,” he said.

The next time one of these actors or actresses tries to say they care about working-class America, remember their words here.

Because they disagree with the fact that some people in Georgia vote Republican, they are willing to judge millions with a ridiculous blanket statement.

And the next time they claim Hollywood has no political bias, remember that they think it’s normal for an entire industry to be so in sync with their politics that the industry would just pull all productions out of Georgia.

It’s worth noting here that even Stacey Abrams thinks these threats of boycotts are ridiculous and only punish hard-working people.

“I appreciate the calls to action, but I ask all of our entertainment industry friends to support #FairFightGA – but please do not #boycottgeorgia. The hard-working Georgians who serve on crews & make a living here are not to blame. I promise: We will fight – and we will win,” she tweeted in response to the leftist stars.
