95 Celebrities Who Attacked Kavanaugh Are Still Silent on Biden, Study Finds
Hollywood stars who claims to be #MeToo supporters refuse to speak up for Tara Reade
A large number of Hollywood celebrities, who attacked Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over unfounded accusations of sexual assault, has refused to speak out on the more-credible rape allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden, a new study has found.
Many A-list stars, claiming to be supporters of the #MeToo movement, attacked then-SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh in 2018 after he was accused of sexual assault.
A new study has found, however, that nearly 100 of those celebrities who threw themselves into the spotlight to blast Kavanaugh have been silent on Tara Reade's sexual-assault allegation against Democratic presidential candidate Biden.
Perhaps more troubling is that some of those who have spoken out, have come to Biden's defense, rather than support "survivor" Reade.
According to a study by NewsBusters, 95 of America's high-profile entertainers showed a drastic change in the way they treated conservative Kavanaugh in comparison to the way they are treating Democrat Biden
Lady Gaga, Ellen DeGeneres, several Hollywood actresses associated with the Time's Up organization such as Jessica Chastain, Brie Larson, Natalie Portman, and Julianne Moore, have not even "offered a word of support" to Reade, NewsBusters' report found.
#MeToo activist Alyssa Milano drew plenty of attention during Kavanaugh's confirmation as she attended the high-profile hearings on Capitol Hill.
However, Milano has been the most vocal about calling for "due process" for the former vice president, whom she had endorsed.
Despite major backlash on social media, including from her former "Charmed" co-star Rose McGowan, Milano penned an op-ed trying to explain why she was still supporting Biden.
She describes herself as "living in the gray as a woman" and notes nuances in her shifted position.
NewsBusters also points out tweets made by Hollywood actresses Bette Midler and Debra Messing.
The pair was outspoken supporters of Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford but have since given the cold shoulder to Biden's former Senate staffer.
The study took aim at late-night comedians including Jimmy Kimmel.
Kimmel has yet to even mention Reade's claims about Biden but joked that in exchange for Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court, "we get to cut that pesky pe--- of his off in front of everyone."
It also highlighted the anti-Kavanaugh protest attended by comedian Amy Schumer and supermodel Emily Ratajkowski during the hearings.
Both celebrities were "arrested" at the event.
Ford testified in 2018 that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while both were in high school.
Reade said Biden sexually assaulted her while she worked for him in 1993.
Both Kavanaugh and Biden have vehemently denied the claims.
