A crisis public relations consultant told an entertainment publication that in Hollywood “anything” that offends the political Left is a problem and that his clients go out of their way to post things on social media that will appease the online left-wing outrage mob.
The comments were featured in a story published by The Hollywood Reporter about Disney’s recent firing of conservative actress Gina Carano. The publication noted that publicists have advised their clients to “steer clear of politics, especially anything leaning right.”
“I don’t know what people at Disney personally believe or don’t believe with regard to politics, but as a corporate entity, they want to stay as trouble-free as possible. And anything that’s going to offend the left is a problem,” says crisis PR rep Juda Engelmayer. “I have clients who are making an extraordinary effort to post what the social left wants to see.”
Well that explains a lot. All that complaining and demonstrating by the left is what has brought them so many cultural victories. Rolling our eyes and staying silent is not enough.
