No Apology? Hollywood Suddenly Goes Quiet On Kavanaugh After the NYT Hit Piece Was Debunked

The moment, and I mean the moment, the New York Times even remotely insinuated that a new witness had popped up to corroborate the story of Deborah Ramirez that Brett Kavanaugh exposed his Kavanaughty to her at a party, Hollywood’s elite squad of activists began calling for his removal from the Supreme Court.


Everyone from the usual suspects like Debra Messing and Rosie O’Donnell, to John Leguizamo and Jeffrey Wright were calling for Kavanaugh’s resignation or ousting from the court.


As my colleague Bonchie detailed, the hit piece made by the New York Times was all partisan nonsense with the “witness” who saw Kavanaugh expose himself being a Clinton defense attorney. The NYT conveniently left that out in the telling of their story. What’s more, the female Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted hasn’t come forward with the story and her own friend say that she doesn’t even recall the incident.

Quicksand is sturdier than these claims.

But that matters little. What matters is that we have a Supreme Court justice that tips the scales on the Supreme Court to the right and, horror of horrors, he was appointed by President Donald Trump. As such, we now have every prog in the nation holding aloft their moral compass and expressing outrage that Kavanaugh is where he is.


This includes Hollywood, who couldn’t wait to voice their outrage and call for Kavanaugh’s removal from the Supreme Court.

Now that this story has been thoroughly debunked, however, perhaps we can now expect to see Hollywood apologize for jumping to conclusions and further damaging the already demolished reputation of a good and innocent man?

Not according to their Twitter feeds.

Reiner, despite people correcting the story in his mentions, has conveniently switched topics to Trump being a liar who may take us to war with Iran.

Messing, after retweeting fellow actors and tweets calling Kavanaugh and Trump rapists, has gone strangely quiet. Wright is following much of the same route as Reiner, with a sudden shift into how horrible Trump is.

O’Donnell has continued to attack Kavanaugh as if nothing has changed.

Hollywood attacked an innocent man over something he never did, and walking it back or apologizing either hasn’t occurred to them or they flat out refuse to do it. I would like to say that perhaps they just haven’t seen the news yet, but again, the corrections have appeared in their own mentions from Twitter users who have read up on the story.


They know the updates, and they haven’t acted.

For some reason, Hollywood takes itself very seriously when it comes to activism and wants us to take them seriously as well. The problem is that it’s hard to take the glitterati seriously when their aims are less than virtuous, and as I wrote earlier on Monday, attacking Kavanaugh after everything points to the fact that he’s likely the most virtuous guy in any given room he steps into doesn’t make you one of the good guys.

If they have any integrity, they’ll apologize, but I’m not holding my breath.
