Twitter just added another civic-minded and socially aware voice to its feed of tweets. Academy Award-winning director Damien Chazelle joined the social media platform with the specific intention to share his views on the current political climate.
The La La Land director didn’t hold back as he debuted his presence on Twitter. In a series of nine more tweets, Chazelle passionately shared his thoughts about the current administration as well as the events of Charlottesville.
The Trump administration is openly endorsing Nazism and white supremacy. It’s that simple. We’re living a historic moment. Things don’t often come this clear cut. Anyone in a position of power who stays silent is complicit. I hold out hope. That the GOP will come to its senses and call for impeachment. That voters lured by Trump’s economic promises will finally wake up. And that we as a country will learn from this. That this moment will do away once and for all with “politics don’t affect me”, “I don’t feel like voting”, etc. That the epic moral failure we’re witnessing now will inspire a new activism. Might be naive. But in the meantime, I’m gonna try to do whatever I can. I gotta believe every little but helps.
He then urged everyone to take action by donating and calling out the GOP on their action. He then ended by saying, “impeach this loathsome misogynist racist.”
