Americans are learning to vote with their wallets. No longer can entertainment elites spout off against their political foes and expect to not receive repercussions. Mila Kunis is learning that the hard way. The onetime spokesperson for Jim Beam has triggered a boycott of the product because she played a prank on the vice president.
Breitbart has the details:
Jim Beam global brand spokesperson Kunis told Conan O’Brien Thursday that she donates to Planned Parenthood in Pence’s name to protest his pro-life policies. O’Brien asked Kunis to explain her “prank:”
“I apologize if I’m offending anybody. It’s not so much a prank as much as I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do. And so as a reminder that there are women out there in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of recurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood.
Every month, to his office, he gets a little letter that says like, “An anonymous donation has been made in your name.” I don’t look at it as a prank, this is like, I strongly disagree, and this is my little way of doing it. It’s a peaceful protest.”
That little stunt is causing some major fallout for the company that paid her very well to be their spokesperson.

#BoycottJimBeam I can't support a company whose spokeswoman cannot leave POLITICS out of selling Whiskey. I was just about ready to buy

It’s great that America is not taking the liberal bad behavior laying down.
