On the Golden Globes, Michael Keaton flubbed the names of Hidden Figures and Fences, referring to the 2 movies as Hidden Fences. Jenna Bush made the identical flub on the pink carpet of the Globes, and she or he ended up apologizing profusely for her error. When Keaton was requested about his flub days later, he apologized however in a “after all it wasn’t racial” type of method which aggravated the hell out of me. Like, Keaton whipped out the “I’ve been a long-time supporter of civil rights, due to this fact I’d by no means be responsible of a racial microaggression.” I’m not saying Keaton is the worst individual on the planet or something, simply that he might have merely mentioned, “God, I ought to have learn the teleprompter, I made a mistake and I’m actually sorry.” It could have been a non-story. Dare I say, it made me marvel if Michael Keaton actually is as woke as individuals need to imagine. And now this:
Michael Keaton is standing up towards the Hollywood insurrection about President Donald Trump. The “Founder” star was at A-list scorching spot the Tower Bar in West Hollywood, Calif., on Saturday night time.
Keaton received as much as converse to Al Pacino and John Travolta, who had been eating with Sundown Tower Lodge and Tower Bar proprietor Jeff Klein.
Keaton was overheard saying, “Sufficient with the Hollywood BS. I didn’t vote for him, however we’ve received to simply give him an opportunity at this level . . .”
Have you ever seen that many of the “give Child Fists an opportunity” individuals are white dudes? I’ll take Michael Keaton’s phrase for it that he didn’t vote for Child Fists, however nonetheless. Word the timing of this too – he would have been on the Tower Bar on Saturday night time, after hours and hours of protection of the Girls’s Marches from world wide. Hundreds of thousands of girls and their allies got here collectively world wide to say “nope” to patriarchy, to racism, to violence, to bullying, to autocracy, to every part on Emperor Child Fists’ agenda. And all Michael Keaton feels within the wake of that’s, “what Hollywood bulls—t, we have to give Child Fists an opportunity.” NOPE.
