A lot of Hollywood celebrities don’t like Donald Trump. Although the presidential elections were held in November 2016, the celebrities still can’t accept that Trump is the President of the United States. Some of them even said that if he wins the elections they would live the country.
However, not one celebrity that stated that left the country and it’s been almost 6 months since Trump won the elections. But, now the celebrities have decided to јoin together and come with an ultimatum to the President. They will protest until Trump resigns.
“It’s about time people understood that we’re the ones with the power and that the president is there to serve us, not the other way around“, a spokesperson for the group said.
“We’re calling for a general strike that would include every single person involved in making motion pictures in Hollywood, starting with the actors and celebrities themselves and encompassing companies in charge of making props, movie memorabilia and even souvenir shops.”
Rosie O’Donnell, Debra Messing, Ed Asner and Michael Shannon are one of the loudest of the group of artists, entertainers, and activists who are calling for a month-long protest to stop President Donald Trump.
“No! In the Name of Humanity We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America!” reads a full-page ad placed in the New York Times on Wednesday by the group Refuse Racism. “Donald Trump, the President-elect, is assembling a regime of grave danger,” the ad says.
“Millions of people in the US and around the world are filled with deep anxiety, fear and disgust. Our anguish is right and just. Our anger must now become massive resistance – before Donald Trump is inaugurated and has the full reins of power in his hands.”
Some Hollywood celebrities are calling for an all-out strike involving the entire movie industry in order to force Trump to resign.
“We’re calling for a general strike that would include every single person involved in making motion pictures in Hollywood, starting with the actors and celebrities themselves and encompassing companies in charge of making props, movie memorabilia and even souvenir shops,” a spokesperson for the Refuse Racism group said. “It’s about time people understood that we’re the ones with the power and that the president is there to serve us, not the other way around.”
When asked why Hollywood out of all the industries is being targeted, the spokesperson explained,
“Hollywood is, simply put, the base of the entire modern American culture. It is the foundation of the country, so to speak, the glue that’s holding it together. And think about what happens when you destroy the foundation of a house. It comes crashing down, right? Well, that’s exactly what’s going to happen to America unless Donald Trump realizes how real the danger of that actually is, and chooses to step down as President of his own free will. And while we’re on the subject, between you and me – nobody wants Hollywood to stop doing its thing, but this is a necessary move.”
“Besides, it’s not like the billionaire-businessman-turned-president hasn’t ventured into movies in his day, right? So, he’ll understand firsthand what’s going to happen if Hollywood goes to strike. Without the work of Hollywood and the lifestyle promoted by it, there will literally be no more America to rule for Trump.
So, in effect, it’s not us that are going to force Donald Trump to resign his office; it’s the people of America who are going to make him do it, because the God’s honest truth is – without Hollywood, there is no America. It’s like trying to run Nazi Germany without Hitler at the forefront – it just becomes pointless,” the spokesperson concluded.
There are some of the Hollywood celebrities who think they can get all the celebrities and American citizens on board with their protest against Trump. Although they hate him, he has a lot of people who are supporting him. We’ll see what will happen with Hollywood soon!
