Jamie Lee Curtis Comes After Fox News For Calling Her A Hypocrite
Jamie Lee Curtis isn’t about to play with Fox News, who recently called her a hypocrite when it comes to her stance on gun control: “Jamie Lee Curtis wields firearms in new ‘Halloween’ movie despite advocating for gun control,” a recent article stated, which went viral.
Jamie spoke to USA Today about the whole thing this week, saying: “It was just silly, because they were trying to make a point without ever asking me what I really think.”
Read her full statement below:
I am vocal about common-sense gun safety and gun laws. For instance, I fully support an assault weapon ban, I fully support a bump stock ban. I fully support the Bill of Rights. And fully support the Second Amendment. And have absolutely no problem with people owning firearms if they have been trained, licensed, a background check has been conducted, a pause button has been pushed to give time for that process to take place. And they have to renew their license just like we do with automobiles—which are weapons also.
[Filmmakers] knew that [Halloween character] Laurie was going to be someone who used firearms. And I think there were myriad types of firearms that could have been used in the movie. I was very clear with the filmmakers that she used the weapons (that) were intended for self-defense for her and her family.
