It’s Election Day in America, which means a whole bunch of supposedly liberal celebrities make their one political social media post every year, urging you to vote to change the world while hoarding virtually all the wealth required for such a change, and often unnecessarily some publish very bad choices! Case in point: the various Hollywood elites are fighting over Los Angeles mayoral candidate Rick Caruso.
As Jezebel’s Audra Heinrichs written down In June, the real estate mogul and former chairman of the University of Southern California board of trustees ahead of his elementary school days in June garnered support from the likes of Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Elon Musk, Gwyneth Paltrow and Snoop Dogg. The support of celebrities who (without musk) generally market themselves as liberal and “feminist,” even — Perry, for example, represented Hillary Clinton at the 2016 Democratic National Convention — is quite eyebrow-raising. Caruso poured Above 100 million dollars of his own money in his campaign to advocate for policies that further dehumanize the city’s poor and homeless. It stands to reason that he might have spent that $100 million in other ways had he really cared about tackling LA’s ongoing housing crisis.
Despite running as a Democrat, the billionaire — who was a Republican by 2019– helped USC cover up the full extent of the damage done by the school gynecologist Thousands of female students sexually abused between 1991 and 2016. Caruso has a recording from Donations to anti-abortion advocatesand just this week, USC Caruso Catholic Center – to the Caruso donated 6 million dollars—divided a now-deleted Instagram post against CAlifornia’s prop 1a ballot measure to establish a constitutional right to abortion in the state.
Caruso’s list of Hollywood supporters has only grown since June — and certainly gotten more unbearable — due to her recent addition Chris Prattfamous for being everyone’s lowest ranking celebrity Chris, and Noah Centineo from Netflix YA Rom-Com Fame. But Perry in particular has inexplicably fought hardest for Caruso share a TikTok that shames male politicians for knowing nothing about women’s bodies, and a Video vote for Caruso themselves within hours. For me it’s the lack of self-confidence!
Perry, who practically toured with Hillary Clinton in 2016, has since been very publicly dragged to hell for pretending to support abortion rights while voting for a right-wing billionaire posing as a Democrat. she youngest posts about the politics prompting fans to vote was inundated with responses that were questioning or derisive or literally desperate their support for Caruso. On Instagram, Perry appeared to turn off comments on her post showing her pro-Caruso voice until Monday afternoon after commenters flooded the post suggesting the hypocrisy.
And yet… it is Yes, really hypocritically voting for extremely wealthy people, for an extremely wealthy man who will inevitably exercise his power to ensure that they remain extremely wealthy? It may be hypocritical in that Perry or any of these celebs are posing as “feminists” while supporting a man who donated to anti-abortion extremists and has held top positions at USC while trying to bury survivors of sexual assault. But it’s not exactly surprising that women like Kardashian or Perry or Paltrow protect their class interests through vile voting choices.
The reasons they gave for supporting Caruso are almost comically stupid. Pratt – a controversial figure for him Connections to a well-known anti-LGBTQ church and his sheriff’s brother connections to a far-right militia group — stressing that Caruso and his tough-crime policy will address the city’s “increasing crime” and increasingly run-down state. But what do he or other rich celebrities know about what actually happens outside of their limos, aside from their heartfelt disgust at being occasionally forced to look at a person with no shelter?
What does Caruso, a literal billionaire, know about crime or how to protect someone other than giving the LAPD more money to lock up more impoverished people? Sure, essentially that invest entire city budget into the police station has never worked, but let’s try again, shall we?
All that nonsense really makes you appreciate the rare celebrity wisdom of someone like someone veep Alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus, noted Fundraiser for local abortion fundsthe one shared thorough thread supporting former Democratic Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-Calif.) for mayor; and indicting Caruso for his crappy record.
Los Angeles, may I recommend going with Elaine?
