Actor Dean Cain who played Superman recently slammed Alyssa Milano over her calls to boycott Georgia over the state's new abortion law.

According to Fox News:

As actress and activist Alyssa Milano leads the celebrity fight against the state of Georgia's restrictive "heartbeat" abortion bill, actor Dean Cain says Hollywood shouldn't be telling state citizens how they should vote.

"The hubris of Hollywood to say to a sovereign state like Georgia, you guys have to follow our beliefs on abortion, is ridiculous," he said during an appearance on "Fox & Friends" Friday morning. "For Hollywood to tell Georgia voters what their views should be on abortion is a huge mistake, and I think it's a giant overstep."

His statements come in light of Milano's speech at the Georgia Capitol building on Wednesday, joined by 30 other Georgia-based television and film workers, to urge the state's governor, Brian Kemp, to veto HB 481. The legislation would make most abortions in the state illegal once a heartbeat is detected in a fetus, which typically occurs around six weeks of pregnancy - before many women know they are even pregnant.

Because of tax incentives offered by the state, Georgia has become a popular place to film various movies and television shows. Milano is currently filming a Netflix comedy in Atlanta and hopes that a boycott of film workers will motivate the state to downvote the legislation, which was approved last week, before it becomes law.

Cain also stated that he does not think Milano is being an activist all on her own, but instead is being pushed by a political group.
