Celebrities live in a bubble where their hypocrisy must not be apparent to them.
Following a social media post by a member of the Rockettes in which she whined because she didn’t want to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration, celebrities chimed in to offer their support.
The same celebrities who think taxpayers ought to fund abortions against their will, Catholics need to provide birth control to employees against their beliefs and bakers must bake cakes for gay couples despite their religious objections, now believe in freedom of choice based on one’s convictions.
Enter Lisa Bloom, a legal analyst for NBC News and staunch Trump hater.
No artist should be forced upon threat of firing to perform for the most racist, misogynist prez in our lifetime. https://t.co/wlhsHIvWoC

You don’t say?
Left wing zealot, gay activist, and “Star-Trek” actor George Takei also took a swipe.
The members of the Rockettes and the Mormon Tabernacle are like all of us: Forced to go along with something horrible they didn’t choose.

And they weren’t the only celebrities to feign outrage.

The Rockettes are being forced to perform. If they object their pay is being docked. Call Radio City & express your objection! : ( https://t.co/INLIRSlm6Y

What do you call people who fight for a cause, but only when it suits their own ideology? Oh yeah, frauds.
Many on social media found the blinding hypocrisy unreal.
Liberals outraged the Rockettes are forced to perform for Trump, are ok w/ shutting a Christian biz that won’t bake cakes for gay weddings.

If you think the #Rockettes shouldn’t be forced to perform, but bakers should be forced to bake a wedding cake, you are a hypocrite.
