Boone, 82, said an awards show in not the place to ‘vent your spleen’. The respected singer feels Meryl refused to give Trump a ‘chance’. He insisted Hollywood shuts out conservatives and is ‘99% liberal,’ to the detriment of the nation’s image around the world.
Show business legend Pat Boone has come out firing at stars who use award?s season to launch rants at the US President and his policies.
Boone, 82, ?lambasted? Meryl Streep for her Golden Globes speech in January where she denounced Donald Trump’s ideology and accused him of mocking disabled reporter Serge Kovaleski in his campaign.
The Moody River singer said he feels that she refused to give Trump a ‘chance,’ as well as saying Hollywood shuts out conservatives and is ‘99% liberal,’ to the detriment of the nation’s image around the world.
He spoke while arriving at the 25th Annual Movieguide Awards, which celebrates faith-based and family movies.
Boone, who has enjoyed seven decades of stardom, claimed that many modern actors and actresses are destroying the industry by making ‘degraded’ films simply due to their liberal views.
‘Now, first of all, I don’t think that award shows are the place to express some narrow political view,’ he said when the subject of Streep’s speech was mentioned. ‘Now, it’s not narrow to her, or to most of that audience. But to most of America, who had elected a man that she detests and doesn’t wanna even give a chance to.’
