I don’t know about you, but I had a perfectly good and normal weekend curled up in a fetal position in the shower glugging down a bottle of special occasion “End Times” wine in between racking sobs. Basically, I didn’t do shit. But as Kristian mentioned earlier, quite a few celebrities spent the weekend out in the streets with Black Lives Matter, protesting police brutality, spurred by the recent murders of George Floyd and Breanna Taylor by the police. Some of them didn’t even post about it on social media, they just showed up! But many more took to their notes apps instead to express their solidarity with the BLM movement. Billie Eilish took aim at #AllLivesMatter types telling them to “shut the fuck up.” And Lady Gaga came for Donald Trump, accusing him of “fueling a system that is already rooted in racism.” And the always outspoken Pink!, well she just re-posted Billie’s post. But it’s the thought that counts! #thoughtsandprayers.
Like many, many people across the country and even the world, John Cusack is protesting for Black Lives Matter and against police brutality after the police killing of George Floyd. John protested last night in Chicago, where he’s from and lives, and showed us that even the star of The Journey of Natty Gan is getting shit from the police. The way that this year has been going, seeing the headline “John Cusack Attacked By The Police While Protesting” isn’t even the wildest headline you’ll see this hour.
Page Six says John Cusack is not an anti-semite. That’s according to John Cusack. You see, when he re-tweeted an anti-semitic message about Jews holding the world down, it was an “accident.” An “accident” he defended at first, but now he’s claiming it was a total accident. John didn’t mean to tweet that, it was a trick! Poor guy just can’t use technology and got got by an alt-right bot. Womp-womp!
