Gosh, Hollywood sure does have a lot to say about what happens in Texas. Maybe they're just control freaks?
Judd Apatow, one of Hollywood's most recognizable producers and directors, is hosting a fundraiser for Rep Beto O'Rourke (D) on September 27th.
Are they hosting it in Texas? Nope. The event will be held at Largo at the Coronet, which is a place in Hollywood where b-list comedians host comedy shows for their friends and family members.
Apatow said on Twittter:
"Come to @LargoLosAngeles on 9-20 for our benefit for @WhenWeAllVote and 9-27 for our benefit for Beto O’Rourke. Amazing surprise guests! Tix at http://juddapatow.com/tour"
Judd's timing for organizing the event is a bit odd considering that earlier this week Beto told a black man at a town hall event in Texas that America needs more illegal immigrants because they're the only people who will take jobs picking cotton. Is that a position Judd aligns himself with? Maybe Judd has a cotton picking company somewhere that needs more employees? It's unlikely, but it would explain the odd timing for Judd's event.
Or maybe Judd just hates the police? Earlier this week O'Rourke also compared America's law enforcement to the "Jim Crow" era in American history. Jim Crow laws included policies that segregated people by their skin color. These laws were, at the time, widely supported by Democrats, which just so happens to be Beto O'Rourke's political party.
