Limp Bizkit On Anti-War Celebrities Boycott List

A columnist at the New York Post has run an article called “Don’t Aid These Saddam Lovers” in an attempt to start a boycott against celebrities who have made their anti-war feelings known.

Richard Johnson-who usually writes gossip for the tabloid-style newspaper-has apparently branched out into political commentary, and urges his readers to stop supporting movies, television shows, concerts, and albums by artists Johnson deems unpatriotic. Among the targeted stars are Fred Durst and his band, Limp Bizkit-whose fans, Johnson implies, are too stupid to even “know what Iraq is”-as well as Samuel L. Jackson (called a “drone” in the article), Danny Glover, Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Janeane Garofalo, Susan Sarandon, and Laurence Fishburne.

The article is in violation of a recent directive from the Screen Actors Guild, which reminded media outlets of their impartial stance and warned against “blacklisting” behavior reminiscent of 1950s-era McCarthyism.
