This is Why Hollywood Should Blacklist Trump-Detractor Entertainers by Sarah Taylor
….Despite the poor endings that entertainers often meet after threatening Trump, many of them continue to do it, and Depp is just the latest in a long line of those abusing the privilege of free speech.
In the United States, it is still a federal crime to threaten a president, sitting or otherwise:
“Whoever knowingly and willfully threatens to kill, kidnap, or inflict bodily harm upon — a former President or a member of the immediate family of a former President; a member of the immediate family of the President, the President-elect, the Vice President, or the Vice President-elect; a major candidate for the office of President or Vice President, or a member of the immediate family of such candidate; or a person protected by the Secret Service under section 3056(a)(6); shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.”

Do we see any liberal entertainers sitting in jail for remarks that they’ve made? No. And frankly, what makes these “celebrities” think they have a free pass at breaking the law when the common man and woman would likely be considered a terrorist or treasonist and incarcerated immediately for making similar remarks?
[Singer Madonna and comedic actress Kathy Griffin also publicly advocated violence against President Trump]
So what are celebrities like Johnny Depp, Kathy Griffin and Madonna up to these days?
Well, Depp has just come off of a year of allegations including domestic violence and substance abuse, many of Griffin’s comedy tour stops have been cancelled and she’s lost her annual hosting gig on CNN’s New Year’s special, and Madonna reportedly frolicking with yet another young man half her age, setting a fantastic “feminist” example for her 20-year-old daughter.
Hollywood at large cannot allow their unhinged, foul-mouthed, entitled and often trouble-plagued entertainers to continue on in this vein.
