Susan Sarandon calls out CNN over Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie divorce coverage
Since the news of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s impending divorce broke Tuesday morning, social media has been in a state of emotional distress.
But like Whoopi Goldberg, who mocked the news on The View, there are some celebs who are completely unamused by the world’s interest in the power couple’s decision to call it quits.
Susan Sarandon called out CNN over its coverage of Pitt-Jolie divorce, which the network heralded on its website hompage in lieu of news about Terence Crutcher, a 40-year-old unarmed black man who was shot and killed by police officers after his vehicle broke down in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Monday.
The actress, who recently defended Colin Kaepernick and his controversial protest of the national anthem, tweeted a screenshot of the CNN homepage, which featured a large photo of Pitt and Jolie under the headline “It’s Over.” Sarandon added the caption, “Priorities. #TerrenceCrutcher.” (A link to an article about Crutcher is also on the homepage in Sarandon’s photo, but on the left in smaller type.) Crutcher is the most recent victim in a string of shootings of unarmed black men that have rocked the country and caused many people to question the amount of force used by police officers.
