Hollywood star and raging liberal Susan Sarandon caused outrage on social media after she compared grieving police officers at an NYPD funeral to fascists. The Oscar winning actress hared a post that said:
“I’m gonna tell my kids this is what fascism looks like. So, if all these cops weren’t needed for CRIME that day, doesn’t that mean they aren’t needed ANY day?”
Social media users let her have it: “So totally offensive in SO many ways. PLEASE feel free to NEVER call 911—EVER. My son (LA County Deputy) became a cop following his father’s footsteps –who was killed in the line of DUTY.
“You are disgusting!! We need police officers, we absolutely DON’T need worthless actors/actresses like you! So pathetic to disrespect the fallen officers and their families. You should be next on the “cancel culture” list.
“People who say “cops don’t prevent crime” have to be some of the most naive people of all time.
“Every single city that has defunded their police has seen a sharp rise in almost all crimes. If you don’t think that’s correlated you are literally just stupid.
“Honestly, what is wrong with you? Do you have any idea the nightmare that is NYC right now? New Yorkers are terrified by the surge of crime, all because of people like you thinking abolishing the police is would solve anything.
“It [is] the logic of a three-year-old.
“’I suggest she does the duties of a cop for a year and then let’s see how fascist she thinks they are. Cops protect little children, rescue those in distress and vulnerable everywhere. All she does it talk for a living.”
She’s not the only actress in hot water over comments made about the cops.
From The Daily Mail:
New York City actress Jacqueline Guzman was let go from Face to Face Films theater company after ranting about street closures during Rivera’s funeral.
In a now-deleted TikTok, Guzman pans over street traffic, showing police cars and ambulances blocking streets.
‘We do not need to shut down most of Lower Manhattan because one cop died for probably doing his job incorrectly,’ she says in the video.
‘They kill people who are under 22 every single day for no good reason and we don’t shut down the city for them, so.’
Her own company released a statement, calling Guzman’s video ‘insensitive’ and that it does not ‘condone’ her ‘comments made about fallen Officer Rivera.’
