President Trump should expect hate and even assassination threats after such a contentious election, but Hollywood has truly outdone themselves.
First it was Madonna, followed by plenty of others.
But the latest threat is turning heads, and should be getting the attention of the Secret Service.
Breitbart reports on another one that has taken the plunge.
TV foodie Anthony Bourdain told paparazzi outside an airport that if he was asked to cater a dinner for President Donald Trump, he would poison the food.
The former Food Network personality and current host of CNN’s Parts Unknown was caught outside LAX airport by a photographer for celebrity gossip website TMZ. Bourdain was asked whether or not he would go to North Korea to do a food show.
Rather than doing the rational thing and dismissing the question from a member of the paparazzi that was hoping to hit the jackpot, Bourdain took the bait.
Bourdain said that everyone in North Korea is starving, so there is no reason to go there. He also called the diminutive dictator of the oppressed nation a series of obscene names, saying Kim Jong-un is a “chubby, evil little f***.”
But then the TMZ stringer asked what Bourdain would serve if he was asked to cater a dinner for President Trump.
Bourdain answered simply, “Hemlock,” appearing to admit he would poison the president if given the chance.
Alright, so Bourdain is yet another celeb that has taken their political leanings to the extreme. When did wishing harm on another – or threatening to inflict it yourself – become some kind of badge of honor for famous faces?
In fairness to these famous faces, those tasked with covering the entertainment industry are constantly asking them for their political opinions. It doesn’t take a scholar to figure out why they do so.
They’re hoping to strike gold by inspiring an ‘edgy’ remark from the celeb. Once that happens, they’ll gleefully tout the remark and ride the attention train as far as it will take them.
How do celebs not see this? By extension, how do they reconcile in their own minds that they’re potentially alienating half of their potential audience by making such ridiculous statements?
We’ll probably never know the answer to those questions, but maybe they can be kept on file for the inevitable ‘where are they now’ pieces on the celebs that manage to successfully flush their careers down the toilet.
