We finally found a way to make Hollywood, Inc. Stop saying “Don’t say gay”.
The industry rallied around that Fake News story under Florida law designed to protect 3rd grade K-3 students from sexual instruction in public schools.
Celebrity after celebrity has made the decision, with many repeating what they have made unspeakable false claims.

The cheat meme was also included in the Oscars ceremony, Hollywood’s biggest night.
Co-hosts Amy Schumer, Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes all repeated the “Don’t say gay” story at the start of the underrated TV show.

Something funny happened to this Hollywood branch of operations. It doesn’t stop Warner Bros. remove gay-themed lines from latest movie ‘Fantastic Beasts’ to appease Chinese censors.
References to gay relationships in “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” were dropped by Warner Bros. edited the film for release in China. Only six seconds of the film’s 142-minute run were scrapped. The edited dialogue refers to the romantic past between the male character Dumbledore (Jude Law) and Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen). “Harry Potter” author JK Rowling revealed that Dumbledore was gay in 2009, but the movies never explicitly mentioned his gender until this “Fantastic Beasts” third. .
That news broke on April 11, but more than 72 hours later, Hollywood has remained mostly, if not completely, silent on the matter. No Tweets from prominent activists made the decision. No updates from Schumer, Hall or Sykes on their passion matter.
None of this is surprising.
The hypocrisy of Hollywood is one of the common points in La La Land. Box office revenue fluctuates up and down. The stars who were hot yesterday, their careers are cooling down today. And actors often play up their ability to say one thing and then do the exact opposite.
- Actors who promote a green revolution but often burn more energy than most Americans. Others preach on Climate Change then jump in nearest private plane.
- They protested President Donald Trump for placing “babies in cages“But was silenced when it happened under President Joe Biden.
- The actresses marched against the Patriarchy but stood down when fellow actresses were fired without good reason.
- Stars flee countries with strict abortion laws but look the other way as studios play with China, a country that is a strong human rights violator.
That’s just a short list. The bigger question remains. How do they get rid of it, time and time again?
It’s simple. They never faced consequences for their hypocrisy.
Most of that falls on the feet of the media. Reporters, both hardcore news scribes and entertainment scribes, rarely bring up these conflicts. If a star gives a pro-life speech at the Oscars, that person is likely to face devastating press hours later.
However, if the same star were to commit nuclear hypocrisy, those reporters would look the other way.
Where in point?
How many reporters challenged Leonardo DiCaprio for his ecological presentation at the 2016 Oscars? It’s hardly a secret that the “Revenant” star doesn’t practice what he preaches.
It’s completely the opposite.
That would be a worthy question for the superstar, wouldn’t it?
The same is true for other Hollywood hypocrites. The media that refuse to hold the power to account for all lies.
So when the whole industry ignores a major studio removing gay dialogue from a desirable blockbuster, it’s clear that they won’t be challenged on the issue.
Why? There are two obvious explanations.
One, without a doubt, will embarrass the stars in question. That could put reporters’ access in jeopardy moving forward. No more pieces tied to their next movie or streaming project. And it could damage their relationship with the studio in question.
Second, reporters often agree with liberal actors and their progressive worldview. So leaving them awkward would ruin the entire movement. And they don’t want to do that.
This lack of accountability extends beyond corruption in the media. Similarly, green energy groups oppose Hollywood’s ecological hypocrisy. Is there a single DiCaprio out for his ecological hypocrisy?
Similarly, won’t GLAAD openly ask why Hollywood activists don’t speak out against the censorship of “Fantastic Beasts”?
Is Time’s Up howling as stars ignore sexual abuse allegations against candidate Joe Biden in 2020? Of course not. To be fair, the group regularly ignores badly behaved Democrats, especially Governor Andrew Cuomo.
In fact, aside from conservative media outlets note that hypocritical stars don’t face real reaction for their actions.
That is why we will continue to see new variations of it in the near future.
