Many American celebrates recently appeared in an anti-gun public services announcement, asking Americans to demand that there elected officials to create a plan to stop gun violence. In the video, there were many very famous celebrates such as Cameron Diaz, Paul Rudd, Beyoncé, Chris Rock etc. read the names of the sites of the most horrific gun massacres before calling on viewers to “demand a plan” to stop mass shootings. But when I watch this video I don’t feel the urge to contact my local congress person or go out to protest to in every march can get to. No. It makes me feel disgusted. Not only is this video ineffective and extremely dictated from the general public, it its it packed to the brim with hypocrisy’s. Hollywood has not stopped glorify violence since the day they started making movies, and all the actors in this video has benefited from there movies and have mad money through this glorification. So perhaps before they ‘demand a plan’ before they look in and see how they are causing this problem too.

Instead of guilting the viewers of this video to push for change and to impose new regulations on other people’s handling of firearms, these influential Hollywood activists could impose new regulations on themselves by refusing to use guns of any kind in their own screens. Not only will this stop the hypocrisies of this video taking such a stand wouldn’t put an immediate end to incidents of mass killing, but it could draw public praise for courage and consistency while sending the welcome message that killing isn’t a healthy form of entertainment. And that guns are a glorified object and then aren’t somethings interesting to know. Will they? No. They are much to selfish for that. The entertainment industry’s love of gun as long as they benefit them. Oscar winner Jamie Foxx who was prominent in this video, starred in “Django Unchained,” connected movie violence with the real thing while promoting the 2012 film. “We cannot turn our back and say that violence in films or anything that we do doesn’t have a sort of influence,” He expressed to the press at the time. Yet even after this he hasn’t demanded a change in the industry but goes on to play a leading role in the movie “Baby driver” a movie that heavily involves the use of guns and even glorifies criminals.

This clearly shows the words in this video are empty. This trend continues out of this video as well, as many stars are “standing up” against gun violence have also while also making off those products. Stars defend their gun using content. Jennifer Lawrence deflected blame from her industry’s during the New York City premiere of her R-rated spy thriller “Red Sparrow. ”“I think the problem is guns, not the entertainment industry,” She told to the interviewer. Studies has show that if a child is confronted with entertainment, that includes extreme violence, they are more likely to own and use guns when they are older Nearly 61 percent of TV shows broadcasted last month has so sort of violence in it.

Of those 287 shows, 39 percent showcased gun-related violence. So, Hollywood clearly has a disconnect between content and message they pretend to have. So, should celebrates just not speak about gun violence to try and make a change? No, of course not, they have a much bigger voice and should be using it for good. But if they don’t back there words up with action there’s not going to be any lasting effect, and only going to leave a bitter feeling and a larger disconnect.
