Why would it be hypocritical, its the movies we're taking about....are there people who don't realize that movies aren't real life?

You all are surprised? Just because an actor plays a badass in movies doesn't mean that he isn't a pansy liberal who has been brainwashed in blue. 95% of Hollywood is extremely liberal, and those that aren't are ostracized.

Bless your heart. I guess you can't help it. You totally miss the point that GZ was on his back with someone on top of him. But then again you believe that TM is a poor victim of White racism. Nuff Said.

He probably has an ARMED BODY GUARD that takes him wherever he needs to go.

Anti gun law politicians and celebrities are such hypocrites.

I agree with what he is actually saying, quite strongly, but it is a little hypocritical on his part.

Indeed.

Celebrities are amongst the lowest forms of life, topped only by politicians and lawyers. Celebrities suffer from delusions of grandeur, and they think their opinion matters.

But it doesn't.

Get on the stand, say you shoot to kill and do not pass go, instead go to prison. Talk is cheap until the reality of the law listens to what you have to say.

Saying you shoot to kill, or that anyone your point a gun at you intend to shoot and kill is not a defense, it is an admission of guilt to committing a felony.

No one thinks movies are real life, but why glorify something you are against? That is hypocritical. He can choose to make a living doing other types of movies, rather than those that celebrate killing and weapons.
