Adam Carolla, Tom Morello among celebs divided on OWS
Those involved with the Occupy Wall Street movement may not have 100 percent support for their rally cry against the 1 percent, but when it comes to support from Hollywood, the odds are still (mostly) in their favor.
In the three months since the start of OWS, any increasing amount of celebrities have taken the side of the grassroots political movement. Whether they’ve visited an actual Occupy site, performed (like Tom Morello did, both in New York City and Los Angeles), marched alongside the protesters, or simply just tweeted their support, plenty members of Hollywood has opted to take a stand with them.
Of course, as is the case with any political movement, where there’s support, there’s an opposition. Over the past few weeks, some celebrities have been vocalizing their outright disdain for Occupy, including director Frank Miller, who described those involved as “louts, thieves, and rapists,” and more recently, comedian Adam Carolla, who slammed Occupy and called protesters “self-entitled monsters.”
Still, Hollywood has been overwhelmingly Pro-Occupy. Check out the celebrity support score card so far. Pro has a slight advantage:
