After Mila Kunis revealed what she thought was a clever protest idea, she has apparently learned that two can play that game.
The actress disclosed last week that she has been sending monthly donations to Planned Parenthood in Vice President Mike Pence’s name as a form of protest.
“I don’t look at it as a prank. This is just – I strongly disagree, and this is my little way of showing it,” she told late night TV host Conan O’Brien.
But the “Friends With Benefits” actress, who is also a spokesperson for Jim Beam, is now on the receiving end.
Pro-life advocates and Pence supporters took to Twitter and launched a #BoycottBeam campaign on Monday, calling for the bourbon company to end its association with the 34-year-old star who was a vocal supporter of former President Obama.

I doubt Jim Beam knew about Mila’s actions, but now that they do they need to drop her or I will also have to drop Beam. #BoycottBeam

“I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do,” Kunis told O’Brien. “And so, as a reminder that there are women in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of reoccurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood.

Pence, a longtime pro-life advocate, signed several pieces of anti-abortion legislation while serving as Indiana’s governor.
Meanwhile, the bourbon battle continued on Twitter.
