Rosie ODonnell, Amy Schumer, Miley Cyrus and George Clooney are part of a group of celebrities calling for a total Hollywood strike until Trump resigns.
A group of liberal Hollywood celebrities are threatening a massive, all-round Hollywood strike unless Donald Trump resigns. Describing Hollywood as the base of the entire modern American culture, the group also claims to be speaking on behalf of all of humanity.
Its about time people understood that were the ones with the power and that the president is there to serve us, not the other way around, a spokesperson for the group told The New York Times.
Were calling for a general strike that would include every single person involved in making motion pictures in Hollywood, starting with the actors and celebrities themselves and encompassing companies in charge of making props, movie memorabilia and even souvenir shops.
Spinzon reports: Rosie ODonnell, Debra Messing, Ed Asner and Michael Shannon are among the dozens of artists, entertainers, and activists who have attached their names to an effort calling for a month-long protest to stop President-elect Donald Trump.
No! In the Name of Humanity We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America! reads a full-page ad placed in the New York Times on Wednesday by the group Refuse Racism. Donald Trump, the President-elect, is assembling a regime of grave danger, the ad says.
Millions of people in the US and around the world are filled with deep anxiety, fear and disgust. Our anguish is right and just. Our anger must now become massive resistance before Donald Trump is inaugurated and has the full reins of power in his hands.
Other Hollywood celebrities who have also joined the campaign, however, are calling for an all-out strike that would span the entire movie industry in the hopes that such a move would urge the President-elect to resign from his position as the newly elected President of the United States.

I hope this isn't fake news. I'd like to see less of these clowns.
I wouldn’t mind that at all; so it will never happen. Just another publicity stunt
GO FOR IT !
Cool. Let them take 8 years off.
What a great idea! Reruns will be fine for 10 years or so.
That vacuum would be filled post haste.
Nobody would miss the Hollywierdos. They would be broke and living on the streets in a couple months.
Yes! This keeps getting better and better!
Do it! Do it! Do it!
Can the human mind fathom such extreme WINNING?
Lol, these morons are hilarious Wish the MSM would also strike.
These tramps speak for all humanity?
Just teasing with such promises. If only.
Obviously (I think) satire, parody and fake news. If it were only true.
Me TV works for me.
They are not as important as they think they are.
Sounds good to me. You don’t make money until WE spend it on your crappy movies.
