Celebrity Activism

Hollywood is not too big of a fan of Donald Trump. We’ve seen this on social media, celebrities attending protests, and of course Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech. This seems ironic because before he was POTUS Donald Trump too was a Hollywood celebrity as host of The Apprentice. In the article we read this week by Gina Bellafante talked briefly of this and how instead of hurting Trump Hollywood put trump on a pedestal. Also it talked about some of the things Shia LaBeouf has been getting into. Like getting arrested for fighting for his political beliefs. Do celebrities take activism too far? When I think of celebrity activism I think of them donating millions to charity and adopting kids from all seven continents. Due to Trump being POTUS will all celebrities turn into Shia LaBeouf? Hopefully not, I think that Shia has anger issues and has been arrested multiple times for fighting. Only time will tell. I can’t picture Meryl Streep getting in a fist fight with a Trump supporter anytime soon but who knows what is to come in the future. As crazy as Shia may be I do appreciate his “He Will Not Divide Us” campaign.
