Analyzing the latest Michelle Obama-featured video campaign ad against junk food, Fox News’ “The Five” co-host Greg Gutfeld issued a challenge to Tinseltown: Help America fight real evil. You know, ISIS.
Gutfeld wants you to “Imagine if Hollywood channeled their energy into something else, like death cults currently killing thousands. Not Twizzlers, but terror.”
“They’d rather focus on broccoli, not beheadings,” Gutfeld says. “We have a leisure class obsessed with carrots, not the caliphate.”
He has a point.
When Hollywood stars got the word of the hundreds of girls who had been kidnapped by Boko Haram’s Muslim militants, there was an explosive social media campaign that inspired the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag movement.
Of course, “our girls” were never actually brought back. And Hollywood has gone silent on those girls, even as Boko Haram is still slashing, kidnaping, burning, and beheading its way through and taking control of larger portions of Nigeria.
Gutfeld’s challenge to Hollywood is a step in the right direction. But unfortunately, most Hollywood actors enjoy fat-shaming fifth graders more than engaging ISIS and other evils.
