YouTube video response to “Demand a Plan” shows Hollywood violence

Hollywood stars have often used their fame to champion causes, but should those stars stand against things their work so obviously glorifies?

Earlier this month, a group of celebrities lent their support to “Demand a Plan” to end gun violence, calling for action in a YouTube video. The caveat? Most of the stars have had roles in films that feature extreme gun violence — something that is pointed out in a cutting response to the original video.

In a video entitled “Demand a Plan – Demand Celebrities Go F*** Themselves!,” clips from the original video are interspersed clips featuring those same stars in gun-related movie or TV show scenes. CAUTION: The video is violent and NSFW.

The effect is striking, as it paints the celebrities as hypocritical — demanding an end to gun violence while perpetuating its culture themselves. “Hollywood is a culture of violence,” the video closes.
