Bill Maher is calling out Hollywood for “romanticizing gun violence” while many in America are debating what piece of gun control legislation comes next.

While Maher was on Real Time he accused Hollywood’s “woke” identity of being faded due to its glorification of gun violence and criminal activities such as murder.

“It’s funny, Hollywood is the wokest place on Earth in every other area of social responsibility,” Maher said. “They have intimacy coordinators on set to chaperone sex scenes, they hire sensitivity readers to go through and edit scripts, Disney stood up to the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law, another studio spent $10 million to digitally remove Kevin Spacey from a movie, but when it comes to the unbridled romanticization of gun violence, crickets,” he continued.

These statements came as the Senate had reached a deal on gun control. Maher took some time to hammer out some specific things he found unfathomable from Hollywood. Maher explained, “they hate it when gun people say it takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun, but they endlessly produce movies with that exact plot.”

This would not be Maher’s first time defending firearms from those who would seek to have them outlawed. Maher pointed out back in 2012 that sometimes “you need [guns].”
