Eh, Georgia’s used to being boycotted by clowns like Alyssa Milano and Ron Perlman. Back in 2016, it was over a religious liberty bill called the Free Exercise Protection Act, intended to protect religious officials from, say, having to perform same-sex marriage ceremonies that violated their religious beliefs. Gov. Nathan Deal vetoed that one.
Then — and this is really pathetic — actors had a tantrum over Stacey Abrams losing the race for governor … the race she still refuses to concede. “If you choose to shoot movies and TV in Georgia, don’t bother to call me,” Perlman announced on social media.
Got that? Hollywood, Calif., decided it would stop shooting in Georgia — which it does for the huge tax breaks — if the voters in Georgia didn’t give it the governor that it wanted.
And now it’s abortion. As Twitchy reported last week, Milano was stirring up another Hollywood boycott of Georgia if the state passed a heartbeat bill, which would ban most abortions after six weeks from conception. Georgia has a Republican governor in Brian Kemp now and he’s not likely to veto it.

About 50 actors have signed onto a letter to Kemp written by Milano saying they can’t in good conscience work in Georgia if babies aren’t allowed to be aborted after a heartbeat is detected. We’re too lazy to list them, so we’ll just copy and paste the selection Deadline Hollywood offered: Amy Schumer, Amber Tamblyn, Alec Baldwin, Don Cheadle, Rosie O’Donnell, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, Essence Atkins, Uzo Aduba, Gabrielle Union, Christina Applegate, Ben Stiller, Sean Penn, David Cross, Mia Farrow, Colin Hanks, and Bradley Whitford.
Yeah, a lot of ideological diversity in that crowd — really surprised to see ________ on that list.
Looking at the list who signed this letter, I hope they stay out of Georgia regardless. No need to waste the film tax credit on a bunch of B, C, and D listers. https://t.co/qu7c1Rm1lA

People from California threatening to hurt the State of Georgia financially if they refuse to not let Georgians kill babies.

For Georgia to cave is to take the worst kind of blood money.

Remember, Governor Deal caved on a Hollywood threat in the past. They love to bully.
— Charlie Richards (@CharlieAtSalem) March 28, 2019
And they really, really love to interfere with other states’ elections and legislation — we thought election interference was wrong.
Would be awesome if California worried about California and let Georgian's decide what's best for their own state.

Yeah, Wil Wheaton’s on the letter too. Of course he is.
Pretty sad little list. More than half of them aren’t even working.

So you want to take away the jobs people have in Georgia just so you have the right to kill full term babies. Aren't you swell!
— Gladysbelle (@FelixaRose) March 28, 2019
Kill more babies and we’ll bring you more business. Interesting business plan dipshidiots.

Hollywood actors have zero credibility as our moral compass after Collegegate and Smollett’s perversion of Justice.

Oh no Godless, degenerate, bubble dwelling, out of touch elitist trash wanna boycott.
Whatever shall we do?
People wake up and open your eyes to these demons and realize that we are in a war.
Don't send 1 cent to that cesspool.
If you have to consume luciferian BS, pirate it.

Hollywood will never learn. You think after bomb after bomb at the box office the last few yrs that Hollywood would shut up and just make movies. I guess we will have to keep making movies bomb at the box office.

Funny how Alyssa is front lining this but will still continue to film Insatiable there in Newman. Hypocrite
— ninergirl (@ninergirlca) March 28, 2019
“Insatiable”? The fat-shaming Netflix series? What a loss that would be if she walked away and babies lives were saved.
Alyssa Milano wants to destroy Georgia’s film industry to preserve sacrament of abortion https://t.co/18WAVipFPO
