Another epic smackdown.
In case you missed the news yesterday, Hollywood celebrity Vince Vaughn proved that not everybody in Tinseltown hates freedom. In an interview, he came out strongly in favor of gun rights.
Whether or not he’ll pick up any more acting gigs after that statement remains to be seen. Hollywood blackballing didn’t go away, it just switched sides.
While it’s unclear how the entertainment industry will react to Vaughn’s politically incorrect viewpoint, we’ve already had a chance to see the media’s reaction. During his monologue segment on The Five tonight, Greg Gutfeld commented on that response.
“The media reaction to Vince Vaughn’s recent Second Amendment defense is as unsurprising as it is fact-free,” he said. “Piers Morgan — remember him? — fulfills the first syllable of Twitter using that platform to call Vince ‘dumb.’ The irony is lost on Piers. Only a dumb person would respond to facts without facts. Piers just showed up to a gunfight with a water pick.”
“Also, lost in this, GQ had asked for Vince’s opinion, and he gave it,” Gutfeld continued. “But, unlike most stars, he did so with actual facts. No wonder the media freaked out. They didn’t know what to make of a star who actually reads.”
