Jon Voight: Miley Cyrus, Shia LaBeouf “Teaching Treason” (VIDEO)
As Gossip Cop reported, Cyrus was among the celebrities who participated in the Women’s March last weekend. And on Inauguration Day last Friday, LaBeouf launched a “He Will Not Divide Us” live stream that will run for the duration of Trump’s presidency. Voight is now voicing his objections to the march and other protests, specifically calling out Cyrus and LaBeouf by name.
Speaking to TMZ paparazzi on Tuesday, the actor said, “It’s been very serious and very destructive, this marching against the government and against the president. Very, very serious.” When one cameraman argued that the march was embracing the First Amendment, Voight replied, “It is what the First Amendment’s about, but what was the march about?”
“The march was against the government and against this president, trying to denigrate his office and his presidency, and that’s no good,” Voight continued. “And when you see the young people, like Shia LaBeouf and Miley Cyrus, and they have a lot of followers. Young people are looking at them, and what are they teaching? They’re teaching treason.”
He went on, “They’re teaching going up against the government, not accepting the will of the people on this presidency. And it’s a very sad day, really, when I see this.” Voight added, “This Hollywood group, I find it — it’s a very sad thing for me to witness what they’re doing.”
Interestingly, Voight and LaBeouf starred together in the 2003 movie Holes, as well as 2007’s Transformers. As Gossip Cop reported, last Thursday Voight gave a speech at Trump’s inauguration concert, during which he complained about the “barrage of propaganda” and “all the negative lies against Mr. Trump, whose only desire was to make America great again.” Check out his new comments below.
