Meg here! So I want to be all “With The People” but seriously, people WTF is your message? I actually went down to Occupy Wall Street to see what it was about and it’s a Gdamn mess. People dancing with their shirts off, kids (20 yr. olds) from NYU screaming how they’ve been wronged. I get how we were screwed, I get the banking stuff, I get why people are angry-this message is too broad. Sorry.
When I’m home in L.A. I get the updates from my boyfriend. He’s as confused as I am. He works in banking but has never dealt with international crime so he’s confused what’s going on as well.
Kim Kardashian made over 17 million dollars on her wedding to a man that I’m not sure is mentally right. That’s crazy. Who came up with her payday? We did. Yup, every time you buy a celeb endorsed deal you’re fattening the wallet.
My good friend Jo Piazza breaks down the insanity. She says “enough is enough!” If they’re going to make more money then God (Johnny Depp over $50 million THIS YEAR) How about we demand they act responsible? How about they should give their employees health insurance? How about they have to hire domestically. If this amazing country thinks being entertaining is worth millions then how about being grateful to extend the gratitude to hire an American?
Please take 30 seconds and sign Occupy Hollywood, because as you read this, Charlie Sheen just made $200,000 and we know he deserves more money than a teacher or doctor.
This is not a lefty weird petition. It’s one that encourages success but asks for a very reasonable “give back.” You got famous in the U.S.? Guess where your handbag line should be made.
I think you’ll all find this petition quite reasonable! Let me know when you’ve signed and what you think? Is it time to reel the celebs in?
