Jamie Lee Curtis Hits Back After Fox News Tries To Shame Her About Gun Use In ‘Halloween’

What is happening over at FOX News? First they went after Taylor Swift for voicing her political views, saying she should stay away from politics, all the while praising Kanye West for voicing his love for Donald Trump.

Now, they have set their sights on actress Jamie Lee Curtis for using guns in her latest installment of the slasher film Halloween. The news outlet implied Curtis is a hypocrite for using a gun in a movie while advocating for gun reform.

Responding to this, Curtis said:

It was just silly, because they were trying to make a point without ever asking me what I really think and what I think might surprise them.  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.

BUT…

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 ‰ÛÒ which are weapons also. 

Dictionary.com cleared up any confusion over real life and a movie. 

Curtis shared the story with her followers.

…and they had her back!

Not everyone agreed, of course. 

FOX probably wasn’t banking on a civil conversation. Maybe they should be careful who they trash.
