In the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre, Mayors Against Illegal Guns launched the campaign, “Demand a Plan,” which features A-list celebrities calling on Americans to demand a gun control plan from their elected officials. Of course, it’s nothing more than typical Hollywood hypocrisy.

But now a new video called “Demand a Plan – Demand Celebrities Go F*** Themselves”  has been created that highlights the gun violence many of these same stars have taken part in in their movies and television shows.

The "Demand Celebrities" response video intersperses the original PSA with scenes of gun violence in movies starring the celebrities mentioned above, plus Jeremy Renner, Reese Witherspoon, Jamie Foxx, and many others.

For example, Jamie Foxx lists “Columbine” during the original PSA, after which the response video runs a montage of extreme gun violence from several of Foxx's movies.

The response video closes with the message: “Hollywood is a culture of violence.”

 

WARNING: **Extremely Graphic** 

Remember, after the NRA’s first press conference since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, Wayne LaPierre was chastised for saying Hollywood shares the blame for celebrating violence in pop culture.
