A Netflix star was recently forced, or at the least caved to criticism, to apologize for supporting, in one way or the other, conservatives Ben Shapiro, Marco Rubio, and President Trump.
According to The Daily Wire:
After being outed for “problematic” tweets and likes — including liking tweets from Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro, Donald Trump, and Senator Marco Rubio — actor Israel Broussard of Netflix’s “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” has officially apologized for his “inappropriate and insensitive words and likes on social media.”

So what were those “inappropriate and insensitive words and likes”? The Daily Beast’s Amy Zimmerman lays out the case against Broussard: He once posted an offensive attempt at a joke about Japanese food and dogs after Japan suffered a 7.0 magnitude earthquake, laughed off the idea of playing a gay role, and wrote that Black Lives Matter just wants to create “division.” He also “liked” tweets from Shapiro, Trump and Rubio.
Here’s Zimmerman presenting the evidence of Broussard’s “racist, homophobic tweets and ‘likes'”:
“While Broussard appears to have deleted some of his offensive posts, one particularly vile archived tweet from July 2011 reads, “Dogs can sense earthquakes. Too bad Japan ate them all.” … In 2009, he allegedly wrote, “I’m not going out for a gay role, thank you though.” A 2016 post says, “Black Lives Matter has one goal. Division.” and “hashtags don’t f***ing matter. but all lives do. black lives matter. white lives matter. police lives matter.” Another alleged 2016 tweet reads, “if it were trumps emails, they’d be happy to hang him on the front lawn of the White House.””
Some of these offenses may require an apology but it looks like the left is really mad at him for being a conservative.
