While the rest of the world came together to march for women’s rights this past Saturday, actor Jon Voight, father of one of Hollywood’s biggest humanitarians Angelina Jolie, stayed home. TMZ caught the actor on Tuesday in Beverly Hills and he had some harsh words for the celebs who participated in the Women’s March, specifically Miley Cyrus and Shia LaBeouf.
Calling the marches “destructive,” Jon then goes on to say that because of Miley and Shia’s younger fanbase watching their every move they are in fact “teaching treason.” Jon recognizes that the act of protesting is a First Amendment right, but the actor feels the purpose of Saturday’s march was to go against the president. “They’re teaching going against the government, not accepting the will of the people on this presidency,” the actor said.
In the past Miley has voiced her opposition of President Trump, but soon accepted him as the leader of the U.S. and Shia recently launched “He Will Not Divide Us,” a live stream that will be up for the four years Donald Trump is in office.
