Ridiculous. Ridiculous is one word you could use for Jon Voight's (a.k.a. Angelina Jolie's father) recent rant in which he accuses Shia LaBeouf and Miley Cyrus of treason for participating in last weekend's Women's March; you could also say it's archaic and suppressive, but let's just go with ridiculous.
The Ray Donovan star is one in a small band of celebrities who back America's 45th president — a stance he made exceptionally clear when accusing #MileyCyrus and #ShiaLaBeaouf of using their #celebrity status to teach "treason" to the younger generation. The 78-year-old told TMZ:
"When you see the young people, like Shia LaBeouf and Miley Cyrus, and they have a lot of followers, a lot of young people, what are they teaching?
"They're teaching treason. They're teaching going up against the government, not accepting the will of the people on this presidency. It's a very sad day really when I see this."
Here's an example of Miley setting a treasonous example at the Women's March:
- Shia LaBeouf's Anti-Trump Art Project #HeWillNotDivideus Is Off To A Powerful Start
- Supergirl & Captain Marvel Unite! Brie Larson, Melissa Benoist & Arrowverse Stars Took To The Streets For Women's March
- Bring In The Likes: Celebrities Abroad Took To Social Media To Support The Women's March
Voight then offered the following reasoning behind the march (a.k.a. his "very sad day") that united millions around the globe:
"What was the march about? The march was against the government...and trying to denigrate his office and his presidency."
While that may be true in a sense, Voight felt no need to discuss the reason why people were protesting — probably because as a rich, white, male, catholic republican, supporting women's rights, immigration reform, health care reform, LGBTQ rights, racial justice and religious freedom, and the rights of workers isn't so high on his agenda. Voight also didn't mention his daughter, Angelina Jolie, who is venomently anti-Trump — so let's just assume they don't agree on the topic.
Of course Miley and Shia weren't the only celebrities committing treason at the #WomensMarch last weekend, check out all these famous humanist villains:
