Typical Hollywood action. With the exception of very few, in Hollywood, they are all about, “Let’s figure a way to make people think we are important and caring. We can make a fortune off the others”. All they care about is the money they make, steal or embezzle and how important they think they are.. Be willing to bet most are also democrats. To me, with a few exceptions again, Hollywood elites are assholes in reality. Save your money America, don’t fall for their schemes. You can help others without going through their antics. God Bless America

“Tax records revealed that less than 10% of donations made to the organization during its inaugural year of operation in 2018 was spent funding the legal battles of victims who experienced workplace harassment.” They must be using the Clinton Crime Family’s business model for Charity Foundations, take in Millions of Dollars and shell out a few Hundred.
