‘Real Time’ host Bill Maher slaughtered the Hollyweird nuts for destroying films with their ‘woke’ casting police who have destroyed the film industry.
Maher slammed liberal actors for apologizing for roles they’ve played which are now considered ‘culture appropriation.
Maher mocked actor John Leguizamo who recently slammed actor James Franco for his consideration of playing Fidel Castro despite his own ‘appropriation’ type roles.
John Leguizamo spoke out against Franco’s casting, calling for people to boycott the film because Franco is not Latino, Maher explained, before noting that Leguizamo is Colombian-American but has played a Venetian in the adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.”
Maher noted several other roles Leguizamo portrayed that did not fit his ethnicity, but he played them anyway.
“Appropriating sounds like an unforgivable sin until you remember that’s what acting is. That’s why acting jobs are called roles,” Maher told the audience. He used several examples of straight, white male actors playing gay and trans roles, for which they were once celebrated.
He noted that many actors choose to keep their private lives private in order to allow the audience to suspend their reality while watching them on television and in movies.
Having only gay actors play gay roles would force many men and women to reveal parts of their lives they don’t want to public involved with, Maher argued.
“[Actors] try to keep their private lives private so we don’t think of their real lives when we see them in a movie that attempts to transport us in to a different world,” Maher stated. “Could you really look at this actress now and not think of the trial. Should she only play bed shitters now?”
Maher continued, showing a photograph of actress Amber Heard on the stand during her headline-making trial against her ex-husband actor Johnny Depp.
“And it is frankly typical of so much wokeness that doesn’t build on liberalism, it undoes it,” Maher noted. You can watch his full comments on his new rule, “F*ck tha Casting Police” here:
Maher continues to position himself as a reasonable liberal voice against the woke movements and the absurd damage that it causes.
For that, he’s become an enemy to leftist extremists but has noted on several occasions that he doesn’t care what those idiots think.
