Mila Kunis Fuels #BoycottBeam Campaign
Foolish political stunt by the actress, aimed at Vice President Mike Pence, may have backfired for a most recognizable bourbon brand
Actress Mila Kunis, who is a spokesperson for Jim Beam, recently revealed she’s been sending monthly donations to Planned Parenthood in Vice President Mike Pence’s name.
Both Pence supporters and pro-life activists immediately took to Twitter on Monday and launched a #BoycottBeam campaign. Many called for the brand to end its association with Kunis.
The 34-year-old revealed on TBS's "Conan" last Thursday that she set up a monthly donation to the organization in Pence's name that results in Planned Parenthood's sending the 58-year-old a letter thanking him for his generosity each month.
"I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do," explained Kunis, as reported by The Hill. "And so, as a reminder that there are women in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of recurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood."
"So this happens every month?" questioned host Conan O'Brien.
"Every month, to his office, he gets a little letter that says, 'An anonymous donation has been made in your name,'" confirmed the former "That '70s Show" star. "I don't look at it as a prank, I look at it just as, I strongly disagree [with him], and this is my little way of showing it."
Pence is a longtime opponent of abortion, having signed several pieces of anti-abortion legislation while previously serving as the governor of Indiana.
Kunis, whose voice can be heard in the popular animated series "Family Guy," was vocal about her support for former President Barack Obama in the past.
