Oscars: "Walls And Armed Guards", Keep Celebrities Safe During Academy Awards
More than 28 celebrities came out against a border wall. Business Insider listed the celebrities as George Clooney, Matt Damon, Johnny Depp, Lady GaGa, John Oliver, J.K. Rowling, America Ferrera, Russell Simmons, Bette Midler, Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus, and others.
Academy Award-winning director Barry Jenkins who in 2019 said “No walls. No borders. Fuck him,” referring to President Donald Trump he said to the star-studded National Board of Review Awards crowd. (See partial speech above.)
Quite a contrast between Hollywood’s anti-border wall posturing and the erection of a security fence around the Academy Awards is similar to the contrast between Hollywood’s anti-Second Amendment rhetoric and the use of good guys with guns to keep celebrities safe.
Law enforcement sources indicated pro-gun control Hollywood Academy Awards attendees would enjoy security “similar to when a U.S. president visits” Los Angeles.
